“Well worth a look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Food is excellent, home made and different specials each week, popular with locals. Coffee is generally pretty good.Shuts quite early unfortunately which cuts out the late afternoon coffee and cake.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

A quaint little cafe with a large selection of homemade delights! Generous Friday specials like the hot pork roll and certainly value for money. Centrally located in the Te Kuiti township up a side street off the main street.
The only complaint is that the cafe is not bigger because the food here is delish!

“Like Chicken??”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

If you like chicken then you are in for a treat, if you don't then you will be scrambling to find anything to eat.
Used to be one of the best cafes in Te Kuiti to be able to get Vegetarian food now lucky to find anything other than cakes suitable for vegetarians.
