Necessary stop between New Plymouth and Wellington. Good halfway house with gourmet pies to match.....why wouldn’t you!

A casual drop in spot close to St John's Hill with superb pies and a great breakfast. Well worth stopping in and having a coffee and food of your choice.

We had flat white coffee and pies. Coffee was awful, and we could not finish them. Pies are over priced at $8. Lamb and mint was disappointing, mince and cheese average. Pies are very generous in size.

On a quick stop here driving through, we needed a coffee and little sustenance, but only had credit cards, which aren't accepted. Scrounging through the car we put together $20, which didn't quite meet what we'd grabbed off the shelf. The staff member very kindly...More
