“Little Station Cafe”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Four of us had lunch here recently and found the food to be very good with a good selection of counter food plus menu food. The staff were pleasant and attentive. It is quite a unique place, being the station for the little train that runs between Waihi and Waikino, giving passengers a chance to get refreshments before their return journey. As well as being an indoor cafe there are tables set up on the platform right alongside where the train comes in. There is plenty of room for car parking for those not arriving by the train.

“Quaint cafe”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

A lovely café with lots of charm. The food was beautiful and quite inexpensive. It was quite unique with the old railway outside the door about to leave and the service was excellent.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Have eaten at this cafe several times and always been impressed with the food. Menu changes regularly and the all day breakfast menu is extensive. The staff are happy to alter the cooked dishes to suit your preferences.

“Busy cafe but great food”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

Small little cafe at the Waikino Station. When the train pulls in and you have a 45 min wait before the return journey begins the Waikino Station Cafe is a great place for refreshments.

A lot of cabinet food. A good selection of cakes and slices as well as savoury treats. Loads of seating outside on the platform.

Great coffee.

Definitely worth a visit.

“Excellent food, good service”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 via mobile

We had coffee then did return train trip. We then walked down the rail trail and back to the waikino station cafe for a late lunch. Food was excellent, so was the service. Lovely old railway station.
