Description: The Driving Creek Cafe is one of the best kept secrets of Coromandel Town - a warm and homely vegetarian cafe with a magical ambiance that may just keep you there enjoying the fine coffee or teas and delicious home made meals and cakes for much longer than you originally intended. Unless of course you're on a train, in which case we will prepare your order with much speed and gusto! You will also find fresh pressed juices, fresh fruit smoothies, and incredible homemade Chai whose recipe was procured after years of dedicated service to a Master Artisan. The Driving Creek Cafe has organic loose-leaf teas and great LaLa organic coffee. Enjoy our freshly baked gourmet cakes and scones, falafel burgers, breakfasts and a great range of toasted sandwiches, tasty beaches and salads. For keeping in contact we do have great unlimited free Wi-Fi. Allow yourself enough time to check out the collection of Mick the Plumber's stunning puzzle boxes showcasing Coromandel's unique tolerance for what may be considered art or drop in for one of our live rants. Discover the peace of our garden with a sandpit and playhouse for the children or put your feet up on the wide sun-drenched deck. Get ready for a treat. We look forward to serving you!

The food was very good but the music was terrible! It was something I should have mentioned there but was too shy to do so.

Recommended to us by the good folk at Hush boutique accomodation. Great coffee, fantastic service and awesome music playing. My wife had cake and I had some wedges with our coffees- definately try the wedges!

Fab food and lovely outdoor setting. The jacaranda is in full flower. Pancakes and omelette are perfect. Great coffee and very efficient staff despite it being busy. Vegetarian

This cafe is cute and very laid back with lots of tasty vegetarian options. The coffee is very good and the second hand bookshop attached has a great range with reasonable prices!

It's definitely worth a look in on your way to the railway - or just for a lovely cup of coffee in a very quiet and relaxed environment.
