Another fabulous find in Taranaki! Unpretentious with exceptional food on offer all day. Something for everyone and the eggs bene to die for! Great staff and a very pleasant atmosphere. Can't wait to return

Nice staff and very pleasant little stop-off place for a cuppa. My gluten-free salmon omelette was very tasty and good value at $7.30.

No greeting was forthcoming,no music was playing and the place was freezing.... We took a seat no menus were offered. We got up and asked for the menus placed our order and sat down. I... More

Undercooked breakfast toast Sandwich was mainly cheese when we ordered ham cheese and tomato. Coffees were just warm. Toddler also had a long wait for a ham Sandwich. Over priced for what we received.

The Shakee Pear Cafe is a great little cafe not 5 minutes out of town. It is right next door to the Pioneer Village which is extremely popular and well worth the visit. The food and coffee is good and also has a nice atmosphere. Extremely family oriented with a large children's playground and outside dining area. This cafe also... More

Friends and I had lunch there just this Sunday gone and it was wonderful. It was a hot muggy day and all the windows were open so there was a lovely breeze. The food is always great and enjoyable. A variety to choose from and the most amazing surroundings outside - The Pioneer Village. Both are a must for everyone... More

I love the food, especially the beetroot or pumpkin salad when they have it available. Generally we get good value for money. We often go there with visitors. They also have an outside playground which is useful when we take the kids along. The service can however sometimes be slow and not always super friendly, but overall I can recommend... More

Great food, great coffee, and awesome atmosphere. One of my favourite places to go to breakfast, lunch or just a coffee and cake.
