Cute cafe on the road side surrounded by historical buildings from an historical village. Enjoy awesome rustic food with awesome coffee and brilliant genuine kiwi hospitality. I loved it and really enjoyed watching the traffic roll by and miss out on this little gem.

Nice staff and very pleasant little stop-off place for a cuppa. My gluten-free salmon omelette was very tasty and good value at $7.30.

Undercooked breakfast toast Sandwich was mainly cheese when we ordered ham cheese and tomato. Coffees were just warm. Toddler also had a long wait for a ham Sandwich. Over priced for what we received.
