Brilliant spot to take a good break and even stay the night. Some very charming pods with just enough space for a double bed.

Haven’t stopped in here for years, it is bloody amazing! What a great half way stop between Wellington and Taupo. The facilities are so clean; the food was top notch and there is so many things for families/kids to do while you take a break. Playground, bouncy castle (yes!), indoor play, bikes, tractors and swings and playhouse. Coffee was great and the staff were so friendly. We will definitely be making this a regular.

Good place to stop for food. Plenty to choose from the menu or cabinet. I had the creamy mushrooms and they were delicious. Large roomy restaurant with good parking. Staff were friendly and the food arrived to our table quickly

We arrived later that we had planned and buzzed the intercom and were met by a friendly member of the staff. We were given the relevant information and door codes for bathrooms etc and we had our pick of the campervan sites.
We ended up having our dinner in the kitchen which is incredibly well stocked for cooking up a storm. Everything you need is provided...just bring your own food.

Breakfast the next morning was AMAZING!!. I had the creamy mushrooms and they were simply delicious.

Staff were very attentive and friendly.

I have driven past this place many times. It was usually a marker point for me. 1 hour to Palmerston North if heading south, nearly at Taihape if headed North. Glad I made the stop this time. Its a great place to unwind and relax.

We will def be back some day. :)

Stopped here for brunch - good parking. Good range on menu and after placing our order we found a nice table outside. Service was very quick and efficient and the food and coffee very good. Staff friendly and polite. Would absolutely recommend this cafe.
