Stopped here for a very quick bite, was on the road in 25 mins with a fully fed family. Nice menu that addresses child and adult palates, vegetarian, and carnivore. Very nice staff as well.

We stopped here on our way to Wellington. It was very busy with busses arriving in the afternoon, but quiet with just another camping couple on the campground at night. Everything is very well taken care of, clean and overall nice. The cafe serves excellent coffee. Campground facilities were the cleanest we have experienced so far!

Family run place surrounded by sheep and alpacas and llamas and other animals. Nice and small campsite surrounded by green hills. Staff is super nice and helpful. Bouncy castle and maze as well as playground for the kids. We stayed here 1 night with our campervan.

Traveling with dogs isn't always easy. It is here though, couldn't be more accommodating. We often do the trip from Hamilton to Waikanae and have stopped at lots of cafes. This was one of the best. Good food great service and a bonus of farm animals a maze and swings etc if you have kids.

Sister loves this place so we stopped. A good cafe with good home cooked food. Savouries were a little frugal in their filling but tasted nice. Mushroom pie good. Great thickshakes! Walked the maze to stretch the legs and it wasnt too difficult; (plus you can see under if you need to cheat). Big warning though. This place caters for... More

Spent two nights here. Made to feel welcomed and the site was clean and tidy. Showers were really good. Facilities were clean. The cafe was really good, food was good and priced well and the staff welcoming and helpful. The alpacas and lamas were cute. A good place to stop.

Our second stop for lunch, the food selection is really awesome, and a great price. A nice warm fire glowing, plenty of easy parking, clean loos. Things for the kids to do, eg animals, maze. A great little shop. Very friendly service. Will stop again on the way back to Wellington.
