Generous servings seem to be the order of the day here. The teahouse is quaint, roomy and the food looks delicious.

Such a nice park, such an unimpressive cafe. Bought kids an ice cream cone, you’ll get twice the amount of ice cream for the same price just about anywhere else in town. Sad to take advantage of tourists and people out for a pleasant walk...More

When I am meeting friends I nearly always suggest this place. It is in beautiful surroundings with the park and lake surrounding you. The Teahouse has lovely food with a good range. You can select your tea cup and tea pot if you wish.

Situated in the most beautiful Pukekura Park, not less than a 5 min walk from the center of New Plymouth after enjoying the pristine surroundings, eating here is a treat. With delectable reasonably priced food - what more could you ask for. One of the...More
