I had no idea the cafe was even here and was pleasently surprised by it. Absolutely lovely. The cafe has a quaint setting which is especially lovely on a sunny day. My absolute favorite place to go for coffee and reccomended to all. Excellent service and top food and coffee. No a bad word about it.

Absolutly wonderful staff and cafe. The coffee is sssooo good. I would travel miles for a great coffee. Yes, it gets very busy, but considering the awesome food, atmosphere and staff I am not surprised! I go with the girls during the week for a regular visit. Safe for kids with the sandpit and gardens. My best cafe pick in the North Island.

The food is good, the coffee is OK, but it's best when they are a bit quieter than when they are busy.

Turn right onto Glenbrook Station rd as you head for Waiuku,watch out for the cafe sign on the right. If you reach the vintage railway station back track 1/2 a km.
You will have no complaints, the food and coffee are all fresh and Lisa's muffins are realy special.
Lovely garden setting. Allow plenty of time, you won't be in a rush to leave.
