Called on the way taking the long way to Taupo with two Chinese teachers. Have been before and again this time found it excellent. Great service and great seafood chowder.

Without a doubt the best burger in New Zealand, we had 2x beef burger, 1x chicken burger and the nachos and everything was outstanding. Great coffee as well

Came here early one morning for a coffee run. Great decor... rustic with lots of arty things around. Ended up buying loads of treats out of the cabinet...they looked soooo good. Wish we had time to have breakfast there. Next time

Unfortunately, one of the worse breakfasts we've ever had. The bacon and egg muffin was dry, rubbery egg and boiled bacon. My partner had the creamy mushrooms which he just couldn't eat as they were such an oily, gloopy mess. When we complained they quickly...More
