We had a little 'girls-time-out' occasion and took the opportunity to enjoy the High Tea at Plume Cafe - and what a High Tea it was! We have enjoyed this tradition at many places around the world, and the Plume High Tea with beautifully crafted sweet and savory delicacies, such as rosewater scented scones, brioche buns with feta & pumpkin,...

Thank you Matakana Cafe for a fantastic Birthday High Tea for my Mother and my best friend. I would recomend it for any occasion, or just for fun. The food was amazing, beautifully presented and the staff as usual the best. A very nice touch with birthday candles for the birthday girls.

Beautifully crafted, tastefully designed, savouries, with exquisite service. Deserts that are out of this world. The choice of teas were to numerous to decide on the best one. There is entry of parking, outdoor tables under cover.

It was birthday time so after seeing an ad on FB for High Tea at Plume Café I booked. We arrived at Plume Restaurant where we have dined before only to be redirected down to Matakana Village and the Café (they are connected). We were warmly met by Natalie who said Happy Birthday to my husband and showed us inside,... More

Took my 87 year old Mum for high tea (need to book 24 hours beforehand). The food was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. Both the savoury and sweet scones were straight out of the oven, as scones should be, and were slightly crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside ... perfect. We had Earl... More

Every few weeks we head out to Matakana and treat ourselves to the Eggs Benedict at Plume as they're some of the best we've found. How good? The fact that we drive 50km from Auckland should give you an idea. Perfectly seasoned spinach and a light but flavourful real hollandaise (none of that bottled stuff here) makes for a good... More

Thank you for taking the time OutThere-Kiwi to put down this review. Our Eggs Benedict - what more can I say than what you have already said in your review! I do confess though that I keep the chefs on their toes by randomly going in and asking to taste the hollandaise and giving them my opinion of the same!... More

We are writing this as requested by Plume via a card on the counter asking how our visit was, so we are not complaining for the sake of it. We called in late morning one weekend for coffee and a sweet something to eat from the cabinet food, thinking that service would be quick by doing this. The food item... More

Attention to detail is the difference between average and awesome. Plume café rates an awesome. Plum datoir and a spicy chai latte delicious. Service prompt and courteous. Will definitely be back.
