We stopped early at this little gem before our hike. Great coffee and the most delicious berry and lime muffin straight from the oven😋 Staff were very helpful too with good advice on best way to hike up to kauris trees.

Driving back to Thames from Port Jackson and chanced on this great place for morning tea. A range of fresh pastries, cakes etc. we decided on a cheese and onion scone each. Rhubarb tart for later. Yum!

Being locals we go to Waiomu Beach Cafe regularly and often. Our latest visit was last Sunday, and as usual the service shone, along with the sun. My wife had the kumara pizza and I had the pork burger, both outstanding. Its always buzzing. Recommended.

Visited for lunch when passing through. Staff were friendly, not busy but food was slow to arrive. Sadly homemade bread bun on pork burger was solid and inedible. Chicken and rice dish was nice but small for the price. Home baked goodies looked tasty but...More
