Description: "IT'S YOUR PLACE" ...That's what we like to say, so welcome to our place which is also your place. We enjoy the company of our local clientele who have become regulars at the restaurant and created a great community with whom we share our lives every day. It's the 'local' place to hang out for coffee and chats and a great place for meals all day. Our chefs are passionate about fresh food, prepared beautifully and served with style. We are committed to healthy and delicious food that satisfies all tastes, so whether it's our famously tender and tasty calamari, or our weekly fish dish specials, or a vegetarian delight, a hearty steak, or a divine dessert, we'll have something just for you. Our commitment to sustainability and environmental awareness is important to us, and we serve free range chicken, pork and eggs. We recycle everything we can from bottle tops (Kidney Kids Foundation fundraisers), to food waste (pigs, and compost). Our community,our tamariki (children) and the wider whanau (family) mean everything, and we support our local charities and services wherever and however, we can to support our community. So...Welcome...To your place.

We went on the recommendation of our host and were presented with the breakfast and brunch menu at 2pm - so much delicious choice. The food was fantastic, it was just a shame about the coffee. Watery and bitter it rated as the worst coffee of our holiday.

Great to hear you had a lovely lunch! Shame about the coffee - we are generally known as the best coffee place, so this is disappointing. Whoever was on barista duties that day really let you, and us down then=(
Sorry about the late response. We missed a bunch of reviews.

Went for a coffee the other day and yes is was no different from the one I ordered 2 years ago, very average, like my instant coffee. I also wanted equal but they only had stevia or sugar. No cakes but I did go in after 5pm, and on a Sunday. That said, they should offer a standard spread if they are open that late (well, late for rural towns).

We dined here while staying close by KeriKeri. Very good food, comfortable place. Reasonably priced. I would recommend it.

A bit rustic looking but otherwise quite adequate. Must remember next time (and happy to go again) to ask for less spice.
