While staying in the area to check out Waitomo Caves we went into Otorohonga to get some breakfast and found this great cafe. The coffee and food was great! Super friendly staff. If I lived locally I would eat their all the time.

Stop by this little gem in small town New Zealand and you won't be disappointed. The coffee is good with several different milks available for non dairy folk. Good cabinet food and the cooked breakfast was outstanding
