The daily menu is hand-written on brown paper on the wall. I took a photo of it because I couldn't believe that of 20 or so dishes, there was nothing I wouldn't happily order! Delicious creative combinations of flavours, without it being too out-there (for me that is symbolised by foam garnishes!) Good coffee. Lovely outdoor garden setting where you... More

Quaint little old fashioned café. All food seems to be made on the premises and is excellent. I had a breakfast roll that couldn't be faulted other than on price which I considered to be about 10% to 15% too much. On the whole a nice place to visit - and it has a great outside area at the back... More

This is the response I got when asked do they sell soft drink and in particular coke. Sorry we don't support coke, only what we have in the fridge. What was even worse was would it be ok if I purchased one elsewhere to have with the ham and salad rolls and the response was not really. Quite happy to... More

We stopped for lunch at this cute little cafe, with a pretty garden setting. Couldn't resist the beef rendang pie with homemade tomato relish . It was the BEST pie I have had in NZ or Australia! Well done chef! Other diners around us seemed equally impressed with their food.

I have visited here several times. I was slightly disappointed this time as the wait time was very long and the tables were a bit grubby. We sat outside and the tables hadn't been wiped and were a bit sticky from previous diners. However the food was pretty good and you can't beat the cheese rolls. It was a long... More
