The signs caught our attention. We both ordered home made pasties. Perhaps they were the best ones we have ever eaten. They were excellent. So was the coffee. We bought takeaway scones to have for afternoon tea and they were delicious.

We stop whenever we're passing through Kaiwaka midweek. The food is always real, tasty and nutritious. Leah makes a great coffee and is a nice person in the bargain. Top marks!

This is the first cafe I've ever stepped into that literally smelled like my Grandma's kitchen, and my Grandma was an amazing baker. Although it's set in the rather quaint surrounds of a second hand store, the food from this cafe is an absolute delight....More

Quirky, friendly café with the best Parmesan, Onion and Sage scones ever! Well worth stopping for and interesting being able to look at curios for sale while waiting for coffee and delicious food

Driving back to Auckland from Russell we were in need of a morning coffee and happened on this delightful place. Our coffees were perfect and the savory scone was yum scrum! Lucky NZ still having highways going through little towns which offer good wholesome cooking.

Stopped into this cute wee cafe on our way home and was pleasantly surprised. A small, but impressive selection of home made pies, sandwiches, toasted sandwiches, and sweet treats. Really friendly service and nice seating in and out. Loved the old plates and mismatched help...More
