What a great little cafe, especially after cycling the gorge. Great tea and coffee and has a very mothers home cooked feel about it. Sitting inside with the open fire and that little smokey smell brings back plenty of home memories. One of my favorite little cafes. Big burgers and home cooked cakes, mmm.

We came with bikes and a campervan and loved the ease of parking and that we could continue our bike riding and use the train to take us part of the trip. Dianne and Tony (the station Master) who run this place are very hospitable people - they love what they do and it shows! Stop for lunch, or use this as a pit stop when you're walking or cycling the Karangahake Gorge - food is healthy, plentiful and reasonable and the train ride is fun!

Good stop off for those cycling the Rail Trail. Old world atmosphere. Hearty fare and good coffee. Definitely recommend.

We recently rode the Hauraki Rail Trail over two days and we stopped in at the Waikino Station cafe for coffee and a snack on both days. It's a great little cafe in the old railway station, which is a bit different. The coffee is great, so is the food - some really tasty baking on offer. It's only a short detour off the Rail Trail, across a bridge over the river and through a short tunnel under the road, which all adds to the event. Highy recommended for rail traillers or passing traffic.

Easy parking, friendly staff, fresh tasty food and a holiday atmosphere make this our favourite place to have lunch when visiting Karangape Gorge. We regularly go walking at 'the gorge' with our small furry friend - and having somewhere welcoming and be able to enjoy the total experience is very important to us.
It is such a treat to finish the journey with lunch at the Waikino Station Cafe.
