Large variety of berry related stuff and very polite staff. Ice creams very good and the offered gooseberry flavour too. Berries were just out of season so no fresh berries.

Mamaku Blue B, Manager at Blueberry Cafe, responded to this review

Hi, Thanks for calling in and sampling some of our berry goodies. The ice creams are always a hit and can be enjoyed all year round. The berry season has finished for the year but we always have frozen berries available for you to make your smoothies or other blueberry treats. Gooseberries will be back in season next December More

I took 15 retirement village residents for a pre booked morning tea. Everyone had a delicious muffin and a bottomless cup of coffee or tea. We were made to feel very welcome by the hosts. There were tastings of jams, chutneys and blueberry wine available in the shop and some of the residents tried a blueberry ice cream. A great... More

We found this on the way to Rotorua and you should visit if you can. Just a great stop to try the blueberries grown on site. We got wines and jams to take back home. Kelly was so friendly and helpful. Tea and food were great. We had crepes, pancakes and scones - they came with massive lashings of blueberries!!... More

The venue is looking very dated now but the food is actually pretty good. The shop area has a wide variety of products made from blueberries, from jams and chutneys to soaps. I bought some dried blueberries which were yummy. We also tasted the wine which didn't do it for me. Vegetarians beware, though, and read the fine print: many... More

We stopped here on our way from Rotorua to Auckland, a small detour off the main road but well worth it. The blueberry pancakes were deliciouus with a generous serving of blueberries. The decore was dated and limited menu may not be to everyone's taste but I liked the family-run atmosphere of this blueberry business.

Eat the muffins, sip the juice and love the rest of the food. The chocolate blueberries are quite addictive. Is a lovely spot in the country for a light meal.
