I hadn't visited this place for several months after having a bad experience there before it changed owners (and name) - but I'm glad I decided to give it another go. Nice coffee, good food, and the outdoor tables are great on a sunny day - plenty of room for the kids to run around without annoying everybody else. Service has also vastly improved!

The coffee and carrot cakes were ace, the service excellent and the owner a great person to chat to.

This little restaurant is located in what used to be the old cheese factory.
The location at the side of the road just past Craggy Range is somewhat barren. The menu is limited. Probably at a weekend best to book for lunch but arrive early to avoid being disappointed by what's left on the menu!

There are plenty of other far nicer restaurants to visit.

Unfortunately it took 50 minutes to get our lunch. By then we were hoping for great food and were disappointed. The pizzas were "ok" but uninspired the Soup was tasteless. It was not crowded so we were confused why it took so long. We did notice the impatience of other diners experiencing the same slowness. The waitstaff were nice but not well trained. I hope they will get more help and deliver a faster, better product.

Set amongst the vineyards this cafe restaurant is only 10 minutes drive north of Havelock North yet feels in the country. Outside seating makes for a very pleasent experience on a sunny day. Good menu and service, definitely worth a visit.
