We happened upon this cafe as a bathroom stop on our way to Cooks Beach and couldn't have found a nicer place. The yard is peaceful and none of it feels like it is on the highway. With the large box of toys and the delicious strawberry drink for our oldest son we stayed for a long time enjoying the quiet and browsing the shop.

We love the Colenso Country Cafe - they serve consistently good cafe food. A lovely country ambience including a little shop to browse while waiting for your coffee.

Six of us stopped in for lunch on a Sunday and the place was busy. Had the lamb pie and salad which was delicious. Also the toasted panini(it wasn't panini but similar) and tomato vege soup were yummy. Best of all was the berry pavlova. Crispy, chewy with just the right amount of cream and a yummy berry coulis. Vanilla slice was also great. Lots of area for children to run around outside and a lovely area of gifts to peruse. Wish we lived closer and we could be here every weekend.

Excellent lemon & sour cream cake. Coffee and hot chocolate ok.
Lovely grounds.
I wouldn't call service unfriendly but I wouldn't call them charming.
