Two of us (both GF) were delighted with the Gluten Free food on offer when we visited here. Excellent coffee and great service. Clean and tidy and easy parking out the back - just walk through the walkway.

A nice cafe. Good food, quick service. I had the pancakes (yum!). They have a nice assortment of teas too. And the Otorohanga free wifi signal is nice and strong.
