Small cafe catering to the holiday park and people coming through. Good selection for breakfast and there are also supplies if you are going walking in the area. No WiFi available.

There was not much open in Tongariro but we found Fergusson's cafe. We had some very fine coffee prepared by an experienced Barista plus some cakes. Coffee was fantastic, cakes good and the cafe very relaxed.
