I am a local and I eat out a lot, busy at work I duck out to somewhere that is quick. I want healthy and tasty food and Churchills is always consistent for their food quality, excellent coffee and friendly service. Hannah and Brad have been here for years and are totally customer focussed and I always feel welcome. Parking... More

Great choice of food and great coffee. Looks to be one of Te Awamutu's favourite cafes. We have been here in both summer and winter, Food and service always consistant.

Called in to Churchill's Cafe when passing North through Te Awamutu.

The cafe has an inviting feel with plenty of seating at tables available.... More

This place is full of character and nice and roomy. We were a big group of 8. We arrived for breakfast and in notime we had our lovely cooked breaky which were 3/4 different orders and some had a struggle to get through it as they were very genuious. Wish this cafe was closer to home.

Churchills is magic. I have watched it from it,s roots as a Church then a home then a restaurant. I went when it was first opened and it wasn,t quite happening but I never give up and now it is absolutely great. Good food and service and atmosphere

Had lunch there the other day. Great menu and the food is not only delicious but my chicken burger had a variety of fresh verges that really were fresh. The service is excellent and the cafe has a lovely warm and welcoming atmosphere. Will definately be going back again.

Quick late lunch with friends, nice and quiet, still serving delicious food. yummy potato top fish pie with real fish. Great service and really nice chatting place. The staff waited for us to finish which was kind of them with no pressure to hurry up. Still excellent food and service. Well done.

Met up with a friend here for lunch and we really enjoyed the experience. Plenty of food to choose from either the cabinet or the menu, i selected the Asian Prawn salad, and found it very tasty, and washed it down with one of my favourite whites, Astrolabe Sav. My friend enjoyed her corn fritters and her iced coffee. We... More
