The garden tables are nice or enjoy sitting inside where you can watch people getting ready for horse treks. Coffee is very good. Chips come with a spicy dipping sauce. Kumara chunks are nice too. Slices are varied and are big enough to share. Toilets are clean. Staff are friendly and efficient

Service was friendly and efficient, both indoor and outdoor dining, quirky settings, child and dog friendly, food was unique and well presented. Good sized teapots - a rare find. This place is very busy on weekends, best to book a table first!

Visited for lunch en route between Napier and Kapiti coast. Good food, quick service - we went for chicken toasted sandwich and chicken nuggets and chips, all came out within 10 minutes and tasty. 'Shot in the arm' lemongrass and ginger tea also good. We visited in a storm and the cafe lost power half way through our meal so... More

Met friends here for lunch. Food was amazing. All ordered different dishes and all arrived together. Plenty of space in nice relaxed surroundings. It is a regular stop now.

We enjoyed a great coffee break and muffin. The venue has been well developed and the atmosphere either in or outside is relaxing.

Good food at reasonable prices. Friendly welcoming staff. Don't know I haven't stopped there previously. My daughter & her husband went the next day ( Sunday 6 Nov ) when I told them about this place & they were very pleased as well.
