“Lots of gluten free options”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Quirky place. But really yummy food, nice range of food. Good value and extra comforts for those with children, babies and dogs. Not the most appealing place from the outside but great inside. Normally we would not even consider a place like this from the outside view of it. But we had seen the sign about gluten free food so stopped. So happy we did

“Take a break on Highway 2”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We were driving north out of Waihi, when we came upon this nice cafe in the middle of nowhere. The outside was acceptable, but nothing to write home to Mother about, but it was really nicely done on the inside. There, they provided sandwiches and other savories, as well as espressos, sodas and shakes. The shop even provided free wifi, which allowed us to set up a motel reservation. There are ten inside tables, and at least three out on the back porch.

For those of you traveling with pet dogs, there is a nice "puppy park" alongside the cafe.

There is new owner, within the last several months, and looking at what she had accomplished, it looks like she will be there a long while.

“Family friendly + parking”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is a site near Maramarua on State Highway 2 about an hour south of Auckland City. It is rather unpreposessing from the outside, and this cointinues when you enter.
WE last visited about 6 months ago, and were happy with the experience, but certainly not overwhelmed.
Here is a good roadside cafe. One thing going for it is the excellent amount of parking right out front. It is also animal friendly, a plus in this day of dog banning.
