Have been here several times, don't really know why I return, probably because there is not much else available in Turangi.... The food is ok, scones are good, but the floor is always dirty. Should be washed every night and I don't think it has...More

I would not go back as I have been there before and the service gets worse every time. The décor has been changed but not a good look at all. Food is okay but the service is slow and staff not very friendly.

A great place to brunch! Good hot meals or grab a quick sandwich and coffee and go. The monster hamburgers can feed more than one. Indoor and outside seating so no matter the weather a good spot.

The coffee was only so so but loved how it came with a chocolate coffee bean and the date loaf was generous and delicious. Great to sit outside on a fine day.
