amazing lil cafe to stop for a quick bite to eat while out in the middle of nowhere! wether you're heading to the west coast or visiting the short walks in the area. I was half expecting there to be nothing out there at all...so was pleasantly surprised to find a coffee stop and food! the cakes are amazing, and if you're after savoury you cannot go wrong with a classic pie! love it!More

As a local who has spent years visiting the Marakopa falls, its awesome to have a cute little place that sells coffee and cake just 2 mins away. There's an awesome selection of cakes from carrot, mud, gateau and more plus some solid kiwi pies...to snack on. For the location that its in and the amount of tourists that used to come through this area its perfectly placed. However, because of covid I fear smaller establishments like this are going to disappear if we don't stop in. I would highly recommend popping in and chatting with the lovely staff and supporting local!More

I don't know how this place has gotten to be #1 in Waitomo Caves. It's not even a cafe! We drove the extra 5km from our walk, purely based on the #1 trip advisor rating to find a tiny little place with cold (disgusting) pre...packed pies, and a couple of cakes in the counter display. That's it. No cooked food, no other savoury option than a grosse Dad's pie. My pie was cold and full of grissel. Don't bother. Go back into town.More

We had been to the Piripiri Caves and were driving further on towards Marakopa when we saw this little cafe. Great stop for coffee and food, clean bathroom as well. Had my favourite treat, Denheath vanilla slice!

Stop for a coffee and a bite to eat. Very worthwhile. Clean, tidy, good coffee and food and a very friendly owner. Very enjoyable. Totally worth the stop.

There are many world-class sights to see in the Waitomo District, and my wife and I came across several lesser known ones whilst taking a leisurely drive along the sealed "back road" home to New Plymouth. We stopped and strolled along the well formed path...to the amazing Natural Bridge,explored the Piripiri Cave,viewed the magnificent Marokopa Falls and by then felt like a well deserved coffee break. Almost unexpectedly we came come across the Toi Toi Coffee stop set alongside the road with pleasant outdoor seating. Steve, the affable barista, served a coffee as good as you would get anywhere; and rounded this off with some delicious cabinet food. (Have some spare cash with you just in case, as the internet occasionally makes the eftpos play up). If you decide to drive right through to New Plymouth there is only 12.2km of unsealed road just south of Marakopa.More

Great little coffee shop in the middle of nowhere with the best ever coffee and great sandwiches, pies and goodies. Lovely welcoming friendly service when sustenance was needed.

Best coffee on our trip hands down. Amazing set up and a delicious macadamia but cookie to round off the coffee!

My husband and I were exploring the area around Marokopa Falls and were hungry for something other than our granola bars. We were excited to see signage for Toi Toi Coffee and took a break to get some food. The two women working were delightful....It was only their 3rd day open and they were still waiting for their credit card reader, so they could only take cash! I am so glad we had some on hand. They were so friendly and took the time to explain the New Zealand pies to us. They carried on conversation with us, talking to us about New Zealand life. They had a nice selection of sandwiches, pies, and sweet treats. The 2 pies my husband had were delicious, and my ham and swiss croissant sandwich was perfectly flaky. We enjoyed the lemonade and ginger beer as well. If you're in the area, I highly recommend stopping by for a lighter lunch. The prices were great, the good yummy, and ther service wonderful. Our little stop there (that was prolonged by a heavy downpour) became a treasured memory on our honeymoon adventure, so thank you ladies!More

If you are looking for coffee after glowworm tour; this is good stop. We had coffee here, it was quite decent in taste. Staff is courteous, good cafe ambiance and decent pricing
