Often pop in here, as the food is great - interesting and well presented. Great location too. Regularly tempted by the excellent fries too. The coffee today was good but $5 for a small regular flat white? Pretty out there I thought. Shame really

Great coffee break while in the garden centre and beautiful to watch the tui and belle birds enjoying the sugar water. Great garden centre and very busy garden cafe so obviously well regarded with the locals and garden enthusiasts

This garden-centre cafe is a charming and pleasant stop - worth the small detour off SH1. However, the menu is more restriced than previous years, and prices are higher.

We tried this cafe out recently on a cold, rainy day. My first impression was the lasting one for me when I noticed that the food at the counter was not covered! This is a pet hate of mine and helps me to decide quickly...More
