Best to look at train timetable if your just going for a coffee here as can get busy when trains arrive. Food is average and good coffee served. Service was good and we were asked if we were catching the train when we ordered as they prioritise the food orders so we didn’t miss our train. Train memorabilia on walls and nice roaring fire in winter. All very nice.

We have been stopping of at the cafe for some years now, good food with friendly serve. Plenty to look at in the DOC room telling you about the area. Only downside for me, is I think the coffee cups could be bigger, and no website. Otherwise all good.

Excellent service and food. This is such a quaint setting. A railway station to visit-don't miss it.

I went to this cafe as part of a train ride with my five year old grand daughter and husband. You can just stop here if driving through, or on the rail trail. Friendly staff and great food.

I have passed this place over 100 times and have never stopped, but we did last month. It is primarily a cafe that serves the tourist train that runs to and from Waihi, plus it looks after those on the cycle trail and those walking the gorge.
The food is your normal cafe fare but the difference is that it is all virtually made on the premises . (Try the cheese scones). Really good quality home cooking.
The coffee was great and nice an hot.
But the icing on the cake was that the background music was just that. background music. It was not intrusive or loud just a pleasant tune in the background. Oh the relief!
