Located on a hill, with great views of Lake Rotorua.
Large room, very modern design, tastefully decorated.

Extremely friendly staff, very helpfull and also very efficient.

Very good coffee and cakes! (I can't judge the Food beside cake)

Great place for a coffee break in the afternoon with great atmosphere!

“Excellent brunch”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Do not be fooled by the outside resemblance of public amenity, inside you find a spacious, inviting and light flooded cafe. We are for brunch, so had selection of dishes. The lamb was tender and tasty, "the big one" was thoroughly enjoyable and plenty. Though too much bread. All in all well worth the visit.

“A great place for lunch”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Loved the food and the service. Wouldn't have known about if not looking for a nice place to have lunch near the hospital. Well worth the money spent and go there from time to time even without the need to be at the local hospital!
