This cafe restaurant has been very well conceived and executed: a glorious setting, everything NZ pure foods, plenty of it, interesting menu and great staff. Definitely worth going out of the way for!

OK it was a popular Sunday afternoon with a number of guests.

I decided to have an ice cream and a coffee. I stood and waited for my ice cream. The two girls (all rather young) attempted to work a machine that required washing, refilling and individually mixed single ice creams. All rather interesting, well at least for the first 5 minutes, but when my ice cream finally was produced after 30 minutes, my humour was running a little thin! Sure they had orders like 7 ice creams from one table but something to vitally wrong with the system.

I gave the coffee a MISS!

I got married this weekend and had my reception party there! Awesome food, superbly stunning setting and our guests all complimented us on the quality if the food and venue. Thanks to Serrena and her team of wonderful team. We also had a large group return for breakfast this morning and it was equally delicious! Only 5 minutes from Cambridge and a little hidden gem!

Early lunch of a delicious burger and blueberry muffin followed by Blueberry picking then fresh Blueberry Frozen yoghurt! Amazing day. The views were amazing. staff were great. a little over priced. And far from the nearest towns.
