A beautiful place to relax outside and enjoy a quiet cup of coffee and wonderful food. Great place for the children and plenty on the menu for them. The iced coffee and iced chocolate ideal for a hot summers day.

Service was excellent, and there was a decent menu. All the dishes we had were delicious, and the setting was lovely.

Yummy food in a relaxed outdoor cafe atmosphere, although there is an indoors for the non-sunny days. Near Waiomu Beach and Waiomu Valley bush walk. Def a great regular spot for coffee catch-ups and freshly made pizza.
