“Excellent stop over on your way to Waitomo”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

They have healthy large meals and its great value for money. The guy here knows how to make excellent coffee. Lovely country café to stop if on highway 39 heading to or from Waitomo (40 minutes away).

“Such a good lunch”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Not many eateries were open on the backroad from Ngaruawahia to Otorohanga on the Sunday we pulled in to this warm and welcoming cafe at Pirongia. The food was fresh, tasty, very nicely presented and very reasonably priced. The coffee was excellent and the service was very friendly. We will definitely be stopping there again on our way south (and north!)

“YUMMY BREAKFAST”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Breakfast was delicious and the beverages were ok. Just love the back drop of Pirongia mountain - very clean and tidy place - would recommend for any occasion

“Fantastic Value!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Always cheerful staff, always fresh healthy food and a good range to chose from. Great place to stop if travelling on the back road to Waitomo Caves, on Hwy 39.
