Nice food, lovely atmosphere. A busy little place while we were there. Nice gallery but found it a little bit expensive.

Really enjoyed the visit. Great coffee and great food. Loved the ceramic and gift shop. The outdoor ceramic pieces are outstanding and it is very difficult to leave without purchasing something

Whenever we have out of town visitors, we always take them here. The service is good and the food is great. The artwork is amazing. The mosaic work is fantastic. Well worth a trip.

Reasonably priced cafe. Great food! The pottery was good, pretty pricey but handmade! Recommended the place to make Christmas decorations that would have been perfect at this time of the year!

A wonderful place to visit with new items being added each time we visit. Off the beaten track in beautiful surroundings and always busy. Great food and good service, a must visit when in Taupo.

Whilst it took a while for our large group to place our orders once we did the service was excellent and the food very good. The staff were friendly and we received our meals quickly. Great little wine list as well.

Impressed by the colours and creativity. Nice to see the work of other artists too. Good range of stock for those who aren't interested in the pottery. I'll be back!
