Went with my mum for something a bit different ad out of the city, the gardens were gorgeous to walk through loads of fruit trees, would love to have bought some plums and lemons. The cream scones were very very generous, we shared one between 2 of us and it was still very filling. Tea and coffee good quality and... More

The scones are amazing! The garden setting is lovely and service is friendly and nice. I come here to get out of town, bypassing the village pub for a country setting.

Ate outdoors, under a sun umbrella. Ploughman's lunch, and the Devonshire tea, both delicious. Quieter, on public holiday, than the lovely cheese factory café.

We have been on an outing for the day from Auckland to Puhoi and came along this amazing place. Make sure not to miss the tea rooms along the road close to the village. It offers a great garden with a peaceful surrounding. The service was prompt and the atmosphere excellent.

Puhoi is a delightful place and the only bad point is so many others find it delightful too thus it can be quite congested and busy. We drove through the congested village and on to Puhoi Valley Cheese Co which was even more congested....delighted we had spotted this cafe on the way we returned and we were glad we did.... More

Great food and friendly service. They have many gluten free options and everything is homebaked.Some dairy free options also. Perfect for families as they have a trampoline and animals for the children to enjoy. And very dog-friendly too. It has a lovely atmosphere and I would definitely recommend visiting on a good day so you can enjoy the outdoors. Definitely... More

We enjoyed sitting outside in their lovely garden. The devonshire teas were ok- could do with a bit more Jam. They would do well to display their cakes etc - as otherwise you're just picking from a blackboard

Beautiful food and good service. Don't be tempted to order extra food if you're hungry because the portions are huge. I ordered the Devonshire Tea and an extra scone because I was famished .... and I couldn't eat the extra scone! A wonderful experience and highly recommended to everybody.

History and good food always go well together.Sitting inside on the couch we enjoyed a tea/coffee and chatted with our host, lovely man whose wife bakes the superb cheesecakes...I chose the cherry sauce but will be back next visit for the peach and passion fruit sauce.A real treat!

A nice drive north of Auckland you will find this lovely little cafe that is well known for Devonshire cream teas. On holiday from the UK I know a bit about cream teas and this was lovely with huge scones, strawberry jam and lashings of cream and a wide range of teas. Clotted cream would have made it perfect but... More
