We usually take a diversion to the Honey Shop as we pass through Tirau. Their range of ice-creams is diverse. The coffee is good too. We are happy to return at any opportunity.

We popped in to the cafe for coffee and cake. My wife ordered a single-shot long black. A wee while after it was delivered she was approached, told that she had been given a double-shot by mistake and offered a replacement. Top marks.

Dropped in here on the way home to the Mount. The coffee was very good BUT the cheese and bacon savoury scone was out of this world. How they get them so light and crispy is a miracle. This alone will keep me coming back...More

A nice stop with pleasant staff and fantastic coffee to make my road trip a little easier. A stockist of "world famous" Denheath custard squares will see this make my regular stop off list for any road trip I make.

Stopped for a break on a tour to sample the ice cream and see the big animals. The ice cream was very good. The person in the adjoining shop was friendly. It was a nice stop.
