Choice of cakes is astounding. Coffee great. Lovely owner/operator. Well worth the trip. Very near the Redwoods and very much nicer!

The cakes and slices are simply delicious and home made on site. The hard part is choosing which want you want to eat. They do great coffees and also cold drinks. Family friendly atmosphere with toys for small children.

Can't recommend this place highly enough. If you visit the Redwoods in Rotorua, be sure to visit this quaint cafe. It's well worth it 😊

We are a small Cakery located close to the Redwoods. We take great pride in providing tasty food and coffee in a cute environment. We make everything ourselves. Not a packet mix in sight!! If you are after a delicious slice and coffee to perk yourself up after a mountain bike or hike we are the place to head to.
