Great coffee, great food, great service - need anything else? Try the muffins and go for the ginger, lemon and honey tea - a great afternoon treat. Couple that with friendly, happy staff and you can't go wrong.

Home cooked food with a great atmosphere - far from the typical bland overpriced franchise cafe fare. The ever changing menu is from locally grown fresh produce with a touch of love. The coffee is great or you can order a glass of wine with your meal. We make a point of going here whenever we head to Thames to vist my father. It is on the coast road east of Te Puru opposite a big reserve. There are tempting treats on the counter and a varied menu - even ice creams. The atmosphere is nostalgic with curios dotted around and a great sea view across the reserve. We are not vegetarians but they are well catered for. Our only issue on past visits was there were only 3 indoor tables. This has now been fixed with the addition of the defunct real estate building next door. Lots of extra tables from old Kiwiana furniture or use the outdoor tables in the summer. The owner, Julie is welcoming and even the chef who served our order has people skills. We have awarded it our own Kiwi Michelin star! Worthy of a planned stop if travelling near.
