I just say - anytime! The place for great food, friendly service in Turangi. Our favourite Turangi cafe. Actually, the only cafe we go to in Turangi.

Great food and coffee in a cafe within a tackle shop. It’s off the main road so you have to do a little exploring to find it. It’s worthwhile though. I had a flat white and the Parmesan crusted chicken schnitzel toasted sandwich with tomato, pesto and Swiss cheese, with a sweet cinnamon brioche roll to follow. Delicious and everything else on display looked great.

Brisk and efficient service too, meals and drinks arrive very quickly.

A real treat of a discovery. Hidden at the back of a jolly fishing shop, we encountered two wonderfully lighthearted staff who made us feel welcome and happy to be there.
The counter food was lovely and although it’s a small place there was a good variety to suit dietary needs and palates, with some offerings just that little bit different to your average cafe fare.
Nice seating indoors our outdoors on a grassy residential street.
Well worth seeking out.

Small but cozy with amazing coffee, food and service - a definite must visit you won't regret it! Awesome bacon and scrambled eggs with very deceptive portions much more food than it looks and perfectly cooked. Simple menu and great tasting cabinet food which is why they nail it! Well done Creel you rock!
