We called into the Dew Drop Inn after a tour to Hobbiton and were not disappointed. Quirky and fun interior, friendly staff and really tasty homemade food, all for a very reasonable price.
(The lovely owner helped us dress up as hobbits and spent five minutes taking pictures for us!!)

We will be back soon!

Thank Daniel C

We forgot how expensive dining out in NZ is for breakfast and lunch, so to find a lovely spot that served tasty meals and was reasonably priced was great. The staff was nice, and there was a big range of quiches and pies from which to choose. Definitely recommended.

Visited this cafe twice recently on a trip through Matamata. Was impressed by the friendliness of the staff, the quality of the food and the great coffee. Prices were reasonable, it's very handy to the Information Centre, and is themed around Hobbitton. Worth a visit.

If you're into the LOTR or the Hobbits, then this is for you. You can dress up while enjoying some of the best value for money coffee and food in Matamata (Hobbiton), and the staff are very friendly.
