So we were happily driving down the road from Auckland to Rotorua and had just passed a potential lunch stop when this cafe suddenly appeared. We turned off the road and into the slightly unpromising car park of what appeared to be a plant nursery and walked into the cafe.

What a lovely informal, outdoor and indoor space with superb home-made food, warm welcome and very good service. We cannot recommend this highly enough (and we are always a bit suspicious of this sort of 5 star recommendation on Trip Advisor which seems to be given out too easily) but this is a really great space. Completely unpretentious but the sort of place that lives in the memory and is one of the places we would seek out again on a return trip. Wonderful…..

This Café has become our favourite in this area and we try to get to it regularly to sample the delicious food and the warm welcome. This is not your "Ponsonby Rd" style café. It is more honest and keeps it's menu restricted to delicious things it does brilliantly. The kitchen is not large enough to be all things to all people. Parking is never a problem. There is multiple choice for seating. You can sit inside, on the deck, outside under cover or outside in the garden. The new owners are developing the garden further as time allows. As previously mentioned by Steve W the date and orange muffins are superb as are the steak and kidney pies. We have never had anything but the friendliest encounters with stunningly fresh and tasty food. Dogs are also welcome in the outside area which is great if you travel with your pet/s.
