I visited The Rusty Tractor last week whilst holidaying in Paihia.
I choose it based on reviews.
I ordered the muesli, yoghurt and fresh fruit.
Totally underwhelming and unacceptable.
Why?
Not home made muesli, no Greek yoghurt, banana that was bruised and going off.
The photo speaks for itself.
Will not be ever going back!

Called in for coffee and lunch. Staff and facilities were fantastic - warm and welcoming. The food was excellent also. Would certainly return when next in the north.

Lovely little cafe. It was raining and cold but we were met with a warm fire, friendly staff and quirky, welcoming decor.
Family friendly and a nice outdoor area with a playground for nicer weather.

Probably the BEST burger I have had in Kerikeri. My hubby had chowder, which was very tasty.
Kids enjoyed the milkshakes and toasties.

Will definitely visit more often.

Selected the only vegetarian option for lunch on the menu,r eggs on ciabatta with spinach just without the bacon. Staff friendly and pleasant on arrival. Meal really disappointing. Two very small pieces of toasted ciabatta, eggs lovely well cooked but spinach not drained properly and watery so everything soggy!. Ordered mushrooms in place of bacon but served not fresh, tinned in juice - sorry not good enough Rusty Tractor for the price you are charging!
