Great place to stop by on your drive. The food is delicious and comes in generous serving sizes (which somewhat justifies its higher price). There's also a cute little shop to browse through while you wait for your food. Service was fine. I got the beef burger, which was fine. I also tried some ribs, which were delicious. The wedges were also very good.

Did not expect to find such a gem in the middle of nowhere. Driving from the ski fields in the dark, hungry, and seeing a restaurant of the calibre of one from a major city was like seeing an oasis in the desert! The food options were plentiful and quirky, the decor was quite fitting, and the staff were quite friendly. They have a decent selection of tea as well, and nice toilet facilities for afterwards. You can even buy jars of in-house made jams and pickles and sauces! Would definitely stop by again if I ever take too long leaving Whakapapa or Turoa

Very nice cafe in Waiouru. Great selection of home made goodies. Excellent place to stop on your way to anywhere (great for locals too!).
