Railway Station Cafe
Ranked #3 of 6 Quick Bites in Kawakawa
Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 January 2022

As the name states, this is a cafe on a railway station where trains are run by enthusiasts of the Bay of Islands Vintage Railway. There is seating indoors and outdoors on the platform. We enjoyed it so much that we stopped on our route north and again southbound! The service was prompt and the iced coffees and muffins/scrolls were delicious. There are clean, but vintage, toliets avaliable and a little gift shop selling all things train related and more! Well worth a visit.

A bit rundown, disorganised and very slow to make just a couple of coffees ... others who came in got served earlier and were very defensive when we enquired ...

This was our chosen lunch spot on the Kaikohe to Opua leg of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail. While it appeared basic, the food and coffee were great.

Popular with locals and visitors, set in the historic wooden railway station. Good coffee and food including gluten free. Catch the train ride while you are there!
