For a relatively new country cafe it certainly comes with the sophistication of a long established big city joint. We had a large group which was handled with great service.
It was hard to choose from the divine sounding menu options. We finally settled on the platter for 2 to start. What an array of interesting tastes. I followed with the starter size mushroom in filo vol au vent. OMG this was one of the tastiest dishes this expert has had in a while. My partner, a long term meatatarian, settled for the sirloin steak. Basic but well cooked and the butter topping was exceptionally good. ( Yes I try everything).
To top off this unique cafe with comfortable style yet sophisticated overtones, there is an art gallery with a fabulous local artist exhibiting inside. Well worth the look if its open.
Great parking here and only 15 minutes from either Havelock/Hastings or Napier. Well worth it.
Also has a large fully fenced playground for children making this an excellent option for parents to really enjoy a lunch/brunch out with friends.
