Steak and Cheese Pie was Luke warm and had a strong onion flavoured gravy. Not a fan, wouldn't go back or recommend

We ran in here to grab a quick bite on a short tour bus stop in Kawakawa. We decided to try the meat pies since we'd been hearing they're popular in NZ. They were pretty good, I guess, considering that's not something we'd normally eat....But I got one from the case that was supposed to be steak and cheese (behind that sign/label) and it was actually chicken and cheese. There are a few places to sit and eat but not many. It's small, and they didn't have air conditioning so it was really uncomfortably warm.More

Came across this place during the Twin Coast Cycle Trail and everything was good value looking at the food coming out and the relative cost. I had to have a pie but did not want to eat it there but managed to have it about...20 mins out of town amongst some farmland. What a gorgeous pie... paua, creme, cheese and a lovely oily pastry. A pie just like in the old days, only problem was I only got one.More

A: the Train station café was shut. looking forward to their lovely food. shame. B Chose the Bakery/café. Lukewarm staff service, we ended up choosing a pie and chips from the warmer, they were barely warm. Had to ask for mine to be popped in...the microwave for a top up, or she offered to get me another from the warmer but said it would still be cold. crikey this is at 10.am. My hot chocolate was ok tho. Mental note to self to not go back there again.More

Always a dilemma choosing between the cream buns and donuts, both of which are overflowing with fresh cream. The pies this time didn't seem as good as in the past but it is still great value given the prices. Stop here for a bit of...real New Zealand.More

Two sandwich packs, two pies, two cream donuts, glazed donut, two large soft drinks, two chicken cordon Bleu, lasagne topper, hotdog...$35 great value, but quality not what I remember. Mentioned this later and was told it had changed with the ownership.

Cream donuts!!!!! Always a favourite. Nice fresh bread or buns. Selection of ready to eat hot foods, or cooked breakfast. Wouldn't bother with the other bakery further down the road.

We just called in for a coffee and a pie on a quick stop. It had an array of cabinets filled with a variety of food. Our chippies seemed a little dry and old but the pie was okay. Coffee was good, however and the...staff very pleasant.More
