What an unexpected find out in the Waitakeres. Great location, fantastic meals, friendly staff. They are busy at weekends but worth the wait

We stopped here for a coffee break while driving through the Waitakere ranges.

Very popular little eatery and lots of choices from meals to light snacks or simply just a good coffee.

It was dog friendly outside and plenty of space and seating.

Was a pleasant little surprise and unexpected good coffee ☕️

Our order took well over half an hour. We had to ask where it was twice. Really disappointing and not worth the wait. Asked the barista for our coffees after half an hour. He didn't even know we had ordered any. He then bought them over but we waited ages for our brunch plates. It was unbelievably slow. Not somewhere I'd rush back to. What a shame. This l,ace has the potential to be great but is failing miserably

In the last village on this lovely road in the Waitakere ranges the old post office and store is now a decent little cafe. Excellent fish and chips (availability depends on greasy fish delivery) but plenty of other quiches ,frittata, salads etc. Good coffee and range of ice cream. Eat in or wander off to the beach and watch the oyster catchers.

This used to be a very special cafe. It is out of the way but the atmosphere, the local flavour, the wonderful cakes and the friendly staff made it a favourite. It's still not bad but it's not special any more. The cake selection is average, the iced coffee now comes in a plastic cup instead of a real cup, the service is less personal and the atmosphere has gone. Not many locals seem to go there any more. It's not actually poor and if you happen to be in Huia then it's ok for a visit but it's not somewhere to make a special trip to and it used to be.
