“Busy cafe but great food”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Small little cafe at the Waikino Station. When the train pulls in and you have a 45 min wait before the return journey begins the Waikino Station Cafe is a great place for refreshments.

A lot of cabinet food. A good selection of cakes and slices as well as savoury treats. Loads of seating outside on the platform.

Great coffee.

Definitely worth a visit.

“Excellent food, good service”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

We had coffee then did return train trip. We then walked down the rail trail and back to the waikino station cafe for a late lunch. Food was excellent, so was the service. Lovely old railway station.

“Not recommend to anyone”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Is not valuable to place a visit to this station. More attractions are needed. Need not spend a lot of time in this attraction

“A gem in a small town.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Must pass this on the way to Tauranga from Auckland. Shame the frequency of train is not great. Great ride though. Must arrive here early if want to take the train ride. Great for family with young kids.
