Our family stopped off in Te Aroha as we were thwarted by the weather on our journey to Bullswool Farm. Roads were floaded, so we decided to return to Hamilton, via Ironique Cafe for a coffee. This is a great little 'oasis', which offers great meals, a range of tasty treats and excellent coffee. Staff are awesome. If you are... More

We went for a snack and had a slice of carrot cake (huge) which was excellent. I had a nice strong cup of coffee and my husband tea. Friendly people, nice ambience. Will go back to try some menu items.

The original Ironique owner has taken the reins again, and the much needed refresh rocks! With good coffee, friendly staff, and a revived menu, Ironique is back... Cant wait to try the bacon wrapped scallops dish!

We haven't been to Ironique for years due to bad experiences, but as business sold the other week - & they have a new chef, we thought we'd try it out. They open for Dinner Thurs-Sun & our meals & desserts were AWESOME! Great menu, generous portions & homemade yummy desserts. I had Roasted beetroot, apple, feta & golden sultana... More

Everything seemed to be a bother, Unfriendly staff. It seemed a bother to go and get a highchair for my grandson because it is locked away upstairs above the café. The tea was cold, the chocolate cake came with cream and not yoghurt as specified, when pointed out - it was met with a sigh and no apology. Disappointing.

Nothing fancy; just fresh great breakfasts and lunches with a lovely staff. Try the chicken "hamburger " or the steak sandwiches

My husband and I called for breakfast - ordered two breakfasts from the menu, one English Breakfast Tea and ice Chocolate. After paying we were advised that they had run out of tea! I said I would have a coffee instead and they asked me to pay an extra $1 for it. Not great a cafe running out of tea... More

We went here on the recommendation of Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. Amazing iron work, particularly in the bathrooms. Good selection of food which was generous in size.
