Just needed a good coffee after doing the Tongariro crossing. This was the best coffee I've had a long while.

On the way to Welly and stopped for lunch. Good choice of meals, servings were generous and quick service. The three of us had different meals and all were value for money. Will call again

Fish and chips are extremely good. The cheeseburgers are extremely good as well! The breakfast is good as well although the ingredients might not be fresh sometimes. Highly recommended.
