This is such a friendly place. Great atmosphere and a wood burning stove. I’ve never been disappointed. The coffee is very consistent. They obviously took Andrea S comment seriously. I had the muesli and it was amazing!

I visited The Rusty Tractor last week whilst holidaying in Paihia. I choose it based on reviews. I ordered the muesli, yoghurt and fresh fruit. Totally underwhelming and unacceptable. Why? Not home made muesli, no Greek yoghurt, banana that was bruised and going off. The...More
