Location and contact

Hansen's Cafe and Store is located in the village of Kimbolton, 20 minutes north of Feilding, or 50 minutes from Taihape when heading South. When traveling from Taupo to Wellington, turn off at Mangaweka and take the fully sealed scenic alternative route to State Highway 1. Kimbolton is located halfway between Wellington and Taupo which makes it the best stopping point for lunch and a walk. Hansen's provides a clean, comfortable and warm atmosphere. Our food is prepared in-house with salads, vegetarian and non-vegetarian hot meals. We also have gourmet pizzas available, freshly made for dine-in or takeaway. Our home-made GF pizza base is well respected and we also have several other GF options. Meals available during kitchen opening hours of 11am - 2pm . Our quality coffees and loose-leaf teas are complimented by a tasty range of slices and desserts made in-house. We hope you enjoy your visit! PLEASE NOTE: We will be closed from 4pm Sat. Dec 15th and will reopen on Thurs. Jan 3rd.

A lovely 'jaunt' distance from Feilding. This building was an old general store and they have kept the atmosphere of the old wooden building. The Mediterranean Pizza was utterly delicious and was plenty for the two of us. Good service. Two fireplaces.

Always wanted to stop at the cafe, so on a weekend drive did just that - had lovely coffee and cake. The cafe/shop is really lovely (warm, cozy and inviting) with nice things to purchase. Will come back and try the menu next time.
