We stopped for breakfast on our way through Eltham. The menu was comprehensive and the pancakes that I chose were lovely - served with fresh banana, syrup and cream. Service was very accommodating and prompt and the restrooms were spotless.

Great food and very accommodating in changing things on menu. Very long wait for food though. Also signs everywhere for children to keep off stones and gardens. Felt really rude.

Oh what a find. We found this little gem about two years ago when on a return trip to a family reunion. On our return this year we visited February 2017 and were so delighted to see the place so very busy and all so happy with great meals served with such love and kindness. I have to say if... More

My partner and I shared a piece of quiche as the portions were very generous. They were very accommodating about serving it on two plates. Generous sized pot of tea for one which was... More

Great café. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, the coffee and food rate 10/10 (try their Cambodian curry) and the premises are impeccably clean. A Taranaki treasure for sure !!

We stopped for coffee and a scone. No scones or muffins only lots of sweet things in the cabinet. Waaaay too much sugar in their slices. I was bouncing off the walls. Sorry but its put me off going back. The tea was very weak too. The toilets were clean and the staff friendly though.
