We were a group of 20 stopping for lunch and readily accomodate us. The meals for the kids were great and adults enjoyed their meals too. Well worth stopping there for lunch.

Visited the cabbage tree cage on a rainy day. Lovely eatery in Tirau with ample parking and seating available. Close to shopping and the place to relax after browsing all the art shops in town

Good coffee. Good food. I had a huge omelette for brunch and menu choice is good too. Fire is a nice touch in winter.
