They have improved. Previously visited and gave it a bad rating however this time was good. Had the chicken and bacon on ciabatta. Tasted good and the ciabatta was with a softer crust than normal. The coffee was good as well. Prices good - mid range. Worth visiting again.

The Café is in the back streets but near the centre of town. Service was friendly and the food good and not expensive. It is nicely set up and the atmosphere friendly.

Service was terrible. Waiting 20 minutes for a drink to be made. My order was forgotten about. I went and asked and they said that we had taken it out but I hadn't received anything. I waiting for another 10 minutes and went up and asked for a refund. I would not recommend going here to anybody if this is... More

A really nice place for a cuppa tea, coffee and homemade food to eat. The staff are lovely and the food is well presented. This place is becoming a regular stop for us.

Well coffee is good as it is Allpress. We have been a few times now especially when our favourite The Walnut Cafe is closed. On the whole very reasonable and great choice of food, warm and papers and magazines to ponder.

I had a lunch at farm house cafe- food was average- did not have coffee due to two things... Coffee machine was dirty and the "barista" did not produce very great looking coffees for others. The cafe was full though, which was the reason on the first place why I'd choosen it. I probably would not return.

If you dislike the Hollywood Cafe style chains and like good, old-fashioned food and service, then Farmhouse is a must eat. Kid-friendly, great coffee, beautiful pies, hearty breakfasts. Won't break the bank and very central right in Hilary Square of Orewa. Outside table a must on a sunny day. Family friendly.
