Very friendly staff and owner made sure both our twins have high chairs although her family brought a baby themselves. Pretty nice location with a lot of nice details. Amazing food.

While this is a pleasant cafe and the food is to a good standard. It is very overpriced for what you are getting.

We stopped for a coffee and really enjoyed sitting in the courtyard drinking excellent coffee. The fruit slice was delicious and the staff were friendly.

This place used to be good; it isn’t now. It got Trip Advisors Excellence Awards in 2014 and 2015, but wouldn’t get one on the strength of our recent experience.

Stopped in for breakfast before leaving Taihape. Food was good & the coffee was great. For a small town it is nice to have & be able to visit a cafe which is up to play when it comes to cafes around NZ. Beats having to visit a standard food bar which just sells pies.

Family of four had brekky and all enjoyed our food and then takeaway cakes and coffees. Quite small portions but plenty for us. Lots of delicious looking gluten free cakes, wish I could go back. Lovely decor and nice staff.

Passing through, checked trusty trip advisor and chose this cafe. The good reviews say it all. Breakfast was great. The lambs fry was very different and delicious. Coffee great, service was fast and with a smile. Cafe really busy as well. And there is an amazing section of cabinet food and a board menu. Lots of character in the cafe..... More

We were amazed by the variety and quality of food in this Cafe/ restaurant. The duck confit with damson plums, the bourbon pulled beef burgers and Scollops wrapped in bacon on pork belly were incredible.
