We took some overseas guests here for lunch on our way up to the Bay of Islands, was hoping that it was still as good as when I previously visited about 8 years ago. We were certainly not disappointed . I loved the slower paced,...More

A place not to be missed for their locally made ice-cream - simply loving the Blue Cheese & Honey type. It's way too creamy (better than one of my favorite - Kapiti's) to be melted in mouth. Good ambiance and definitely worth your time for...More

Quite a drive from Auckland but definitely worth it! They are a cafe and factory combined, so you can buy your own fresh dairy products to take home. Friendly staff, clean bathrooms, and the outdoor seating is dog friendly. The cheese platters are an ideal...More

This is a little haven just outside of Auckland on the SH1 to Whangarei. Takes about twenty minutes from the city and a clear drive on the motorway. Great Food, fantastic service and both indoor and outdoor sitting. A little secured play ground with swings...More

A must stop for break before or after leaving Auckland. A slight detour but worth it. Delicious cheese choice and food. Ice cream out of the world. Hard to enjoy all types of food in one visit, definitely worth coming back again and again. It's...More
