If the place looks so busy, don't drop into. They sell takeaway ice cream so it's good for kids.

A lovely setting that makes me think of families having a cup of tea and scones on a sunny afternoon. It actually is all that. Children and families with ice creams looking at the ducks and enjoying the park. It's nice.
We do prefer to sit outside as the tea house tends to be a bit stuffy inside. Having said that it may just be part of the charm (!) as the sausage rolls were fresh, homemade and absolutely beautiful.

This is a pleasant place to pop into after a walk around Pukekura Park. They have your usual variety of scones, muffins, cakes & sandwiches in their cabinet along with plenty of extra options too. The coffee is good & they have a variety of teas as well. The atmosphere is homely & there is also a chocolate bar where you can purchase homemade chocolates.

Picture perfect spot by the lake at Pukekura Park. On a clear day, you can feel like you are a million miles away. Food is excellent albeit somewhat pricey ($5 for a bottle of Pump brand water).

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.
