Had a savoury muffin and a couple of slices in the afternoon sun. A perfect spot just out of Wairoa.

We ate here last year, and decided it was a good point to stop at on our way to Tauranga. Excellent wines by the glass, although limited range - but understandable. Staff cheery and food good. We were entertained by the chickens and ducks below us.

This was a suggested stopping place and the outlook is pleasant although noisy with the road just in front and trucks beating past.
Our coffee break included a bite to eat and some drinks, a hot chocolate and two espressos. The chocolate was fine and the food was good but the lady making the coffee had no idea how to draw an espresso. When the first were returned for a second try, the replacement was worse and when speaking with the barista (generous description) it was clear she was totally unaware of how to sort the matter and draw a reasonable replacement, neither were drinkable.
A refund was offered but declined in the fond hope the person would brush up skills.

The hens in the driveway are good for entertainment but the rooster is loud!

Just outside Wairoa - we decided to try this place as places in Wairoa were crowded. Agreeably surprised to find the premises were nice and clean and bright (unlike places in Wairoa which are pretty dated) - there were plenty of options for food and drink. I had a nice cup of tea and was told that coffees were very acceptable. I had eggs on toast which were cooked spot on with a runny yolk (many places seem to have hard yolks for some reason) - others had pancakes with bacon (verdict very good) and bacon and eggs (verdict also good). There's a lot of chickens roaming around the area but they stay on the ground so no problem. Would grade higher but staff were a bit quiet and didn't smile much - did get some but they appeared to be still learning and maybe were concentrating on their task - should change once they are experienced

After our enjoyable soak at Morere Hot Springs we stopped to have late lunch. We had the seafood platter which tasted like it come out of a The ala mode apple shortcake dessert fillings had chopped apples but the shortcake was lacking. There was a chicken on the patio crackling all the time we were eating and then it suddenly flew up onto our table wanting food! I do not like animals at my dining table! We were disappointed as we had good food the past 10 days traveling from Auckland around Coromandel /east cape to Gisborne and this is the first place that the quality was substandard.
