I have often driven past this place on my way south and thought...one day I will call in. Well, Sunday was the day - we had been driving and called in for a coffee and afternoon tea. The place is HUGE, very deceiving from the outside. We sat in the main body of the lounge area but there was also a side 'wing' that had a ceiling drapery - looks like they do weddings etc and I guess they would do them well. There was a family in there celebrating a birthday and seemed to be enjoying themselves.
The food was quickly delivered to us, it was fresh, nicely presented and very edible! Tasty! Everyone at the table enjoyed their food and beverages.
They have an outside seating area too however there seemed to be a plethora of smokers when we visited and the wafts of cigarette smoke while I am eating/drinking was rather off-putting - hence the inside choice of seating!
There is a petting zoo for children too and the animals appeared happy and contented. You are able to buy little bags of pet food at the counter to feed the animals and there were happy families doing just this in the sun. There is plenty of parking.

This is a pleasant cafe, with plenty of animals outside to keep little ones happy. There is also a model village which can be viewed on request - there is a charge. Food is average, choose from all day menu, specials board or cabinet food, great icecream sundaes.
Menu doesn't change very much so wouldn't want to go too often.

This is a lovely out of town restaurant, with animals for the children, and a museum to visit too.

I have been there for a work Christmas function, which was good, and we often go there for a lunch on a sunny day.

The animals are nice, especially the friendly donkey!

We stopped off here for lunch, as did a number of other people that day. It was a beautiful sunny day and many people were dinning out on the deck. It was Waitangi Day (Thu 06 Feb) and it was a pleasant surprise not to be hit with a public holiday surcharge.

There was plenty of food to choose from - counter food and a blackboard menu. The service was friendly and efficient. We both really enjoyed our meals (selected from the blackboard menu). We would certainly stop off here again.

There is plenty of seating so if there was a large group it would be easy to get a table.
