“Scones with jam and cream in a lovely setting...”
Review of Vi's Teahouse

Vi's Teahouse
Ranked #4 of 13 Coffee & Tea in Rotorua
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 November 2012

This cute little teahouse is part of the Buried Village complex and it’s a quaint old-fashioned business with the quintessential Devonshire Tea – and it was very good!

We toured the Village first then sat outside on the patio to have our ‘tea’ and a hot chocolate mid afternoon. If you are hungrier for more then there is also coffee and a selection of delicious cakes, slices and sandwiches.The Inside seating area had an interesting photo gallery showing the tearoom through the decades. Lovely green ferns and maintained grounds surround the patio and the nearby restrooms are ‘spotless'.

There is so much emphasis on ‘modern’ food now; it’s a refreshing change to eat something that brings back such wonderful memories - enjoying homemade scones with jam and cream! It’s worth coming out here even if you don’t visit the Buried Village however this is a visual reminder of the 1886 eruption and has been painstakingly excavated.

Enjoy your break!
