As usual the Rusty Tractor provided delicious meals on a cool Sunday. 87 yr old mother in law loved her lunch out. They packed up some sweeties for us and went home . The lamb shank is delicious!

Hubby and I called in for a lunch visit. We were warned that there would be a wait due to the busy time however our food came out more quickly that expected so appreciated that. Enjoyed our meals.

Had the best eggs Benedict I’ve had for ages but just that and a single shot flat white cost me over $30. Great quality but a bit pricey to be a regular stop.

We were pleasantly surprised at the caliber of the food and the atmosphere. Hubby had the all day breakfast and I had the steak sandwich. Both were delicious and well proportioned meals. We were served by the owner/operators who were an absolute delight. We would...highly recommend and we will be back with family.More

Just for coffee and blueberry cake but it was a delicious experience. The friendly Indonesian owner to me that it was the first time to bake cake at Rusty Tractor – a success, hope there will be more! I don't usually eat cake, too sweet...in New Zealand, but this was great, gluten-free too!More

Don't know why people keep saying "restaurant", suggesting that they expect restaurant food and drink. It's a caff, and a very good one! I had my usual lunch, a great Greek salad, toast and a glass or rosé. We also ordered good looking corn burgers,...first time to see them there. We asked if they were veggey, and they were so we bought, very nice indeed. I suggest though making a pouring sauce of the relish, it was difficult to get on to the burger. I look forward to trying the pea burger soon. The potato-leek soup looked great but was very salty. Great place, good prices and service.More

Today we had a most disappointing lunch. We both had the soup of the day. While the soup was somewhat tasty the bun it was served with had obviously been frozen and over microwaved before it was served. We also felt it was very overpriced!!

I love this place because the food is so delicious! It's sometimes slow to arrive, you are warned about that. But it's delightful to sit in the garden and wait. So the slowness does not matter. The quality of the food does not falter. It's...worth waiting for! The fish chowder is fantastic. It arrives resplendent with calamari, fish, prawns and it's served in a delicious fresh bread case. The prawns are also wonderful.More
