Was looking forward to return here after a memorable visit several years ago. When we arrived we were not welcomed and infact had to initiate the communication. We place drinks orders only because we certainly did not feel enticed to stay very long. We made our own way out to our seating in the garden and even when our order was brought out the service was quite perfunctory. Missed the boat here Colenso on what should have been a perfect setting for a leisurely lunch. Couldn't wait to finish our drinks and leave. Won't return sorry.

Country cafe with a delighful herb garden. The food was good, staff were great, coffee good too ... And kids would like the donkeys at the back!
It also has a nice range of local art and gifts. When compared to many other cafes you can see a lot thought has gone into creating a relaxed country atmosphere. This cafe would be the best stop in the whole region.
