Popped in yesterday with two friends after a brief visit 3 months ago. You won't be disappointed. Beautifully prepared upmarket food made with love and flair. Give it a go when you are next in Turangi. The little gift shop attached also have some fine wares!

The chicken pie is the best I have ever tasted. Pastry Devine and filling just as good.
Don't miss the best coffee in the central north island.
As goof as Melbourne in the trout fishing capital of the world.

We visited for brunch Queens Birthday weekend with another couple.
Quite a small cafe attached to the tackle and gift shop, myself and my friend had the Croque Monsieur which was very filling, and the guys had bacon and scrambled eggs which was also good, along with good coffees it was a pleasurable experience.

We heard about this cafe from friends at home in Auckland, so after staying the night in Taupo, we drove to Turangi for breakfast. The coffee was fantastic, my Brioche French toast was really lovely, and Richards Scrambled Egg with rolled Bacon that looked like a rose, was the best he's had in ages. The little Gift Nook that has just been added was very tempting! Thanks Grant and Deb, we will be back.
