A great place to grab a coffee and something delicious from the range of home baking. Fast and friendly service. We're looking forward to coming back!

Six of us stayed in nearby Waimarama Fishing Lodge just a short walk to the Creel cafe and made regular trips to the cafe. What a find. Easily the best cafe in the area and one hard to beat anywhere. All the food is cooked on the premises and is fresh and superb. Good coffee and excellent service. The pastries are fantastic but be warned - get in fast as they sell fast. One morning we bought a few and decided we wanted more and went back. There was only one left. That caused a fight.

The best almond croissants I have ever had (and I've had a few!), and while saying the coffee is the best in Turangi is kinda stating the obvious (i.e. - not much competition), the coffee is superb. Great cabinet food as well.

On our first day in Turangi, our fishing guide took us here to get sandwiches for our lunch. They were so good that we went back to get sandwiches for our Tongariro Alpine Crossing hike. They were nice enough to get up early to prepare our sandwiches so that we could pick them up in the morning before our early bus ride to the hike. We went back to have lunch and had a very delicious pastry filled with various cooked veggies. We also had an awesome fruit bar for dessert. Sitting out front at the picnic table to eat made for a great lunch.
