Always try to stop off here for gelato - so delicious. There are plenty of seating options to make yourself comfortable. Parking is good and service is reasonable quick considering it’s often very busy

Fantastic place - the ice cream/gelato is 110% - don't think you will get better anywhere in NZ. It is that good. Pizza - best wood fired I have ever tasted. Brilliant setting & amazing staff. You will not be disappointed.

We stop here each time we visit the area as their ice cream is soooo good. There is lovely outdoor seating out back. There is also a lovely Wool shop attached.
