Very nice little town. Good cafe with a good choice. Price was reasonable but had to wait a while for food, possibly due to special requirements of one of our party but other than that very good.

A great cup of tea, and yummy food when I stopped on my way from Hastings to New Plymouth. Discovered later in the day I'd left my handbag at the café, and phoned them. Pleasant staff member offered to courier it to me, and did :) Thanks, Holly. I'll be back!

This place is more of a servery than a cafe. They do have a menu, but its a bit of a mish mash, with it not really being clear what to do upon entry. The amenities are ok, it reminded me of a mess hall in a military base. Nothing special, but neat and clean. Customers have to fetch thier... More

Fabulous food, freshly baked. What a pleasant surprise to find this little cafe in Woodville on our way to Wellington. We just happened to stop and find this place with all these lovely freshly baked goods plus great tea and coffee. A must stop over.

Generally, always stop here on the way to Wellington or South for breakfast or coffee and cabinet food. Last time we called, little cabinet food and a non smiling cafe staff. Even when food was brought to the table, the lady on duty found it hard to reply to my thank you, or even smile a greeting. What is wrong... More

Exactly what you would expect from this traditional road side cafe. we just had drinks who were all fine. The pie cabinet was well stocked and looked like they might be made locally.
