This Cafe is sited only a few steps from the Village Information Centre. Enjoy a Latte or two, on the sidewalk. Friendly staff and plenty of goodies to choose from.

Has this place changed hands or something? There were literally no other customers early afternoon - normally it would be buzzing. In ten years of going there, I have never been the only person there, even early morning. The three staff there today were too busy chatting to acknowledge me when I walked in.

Called in after a drive up to Te Mata Peak. Coffee was good & the beesting was absolutely yummy - might have to go back again before we have to go home - definitely recommend everyone try it out!

I always stop here for their gorgeous filled rolls, these guys make all their own breads. I'm fussy with filled rolls and sandwiches and don't normally buy them at bakeries but these guys food is great. Good pies, sweet treats and breads too - bakery how you remember it.

Stopped in for a quick snack. Tried their vege pie - really nice sauce and vegetable filling. The staff were really helpful in recommending local attractions/beaches. If we had more time to try their menu, we sure would have been pleased. A variety of baked breads in their cabinet.

My Mother and I visited Jacksons Bakery on the first Monday of the school holidays. It was very busy. We were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming woman. We ordered coffee - a double shot cappuccino with cinnamon and an Americano with cold trim milk. I asked for double shots, Then the warming atmosphere was cut by an icy... More

Recently I stopped in for lunch with three people. Usually the food here is really good, but this particular day, I had a brown filled roll. The bread was dry dry dry, like it was 4 days old and the filling was pathetic, good lettuce, good meat, but the egg was a slither as was the tomato and that was... More

Family members suggested this for lunch after climbing Te Mata Peak. Yes, great pies and bakery items, very good coffee and nice tables on the pavement in the sun.
