We stopped at MRC for late lunch and a nice cuppa. Place inviting. If you have fido or Fifi there is a nice outdoor sitting area where you can be accommodated so bring your canine after a long walk for a rejuvenating shot of caffeine. The food is cooked fresh and coffee is tasty. Staff inviting and knowledgable. If you... More

Food was good ..we had Eggs bene and the breakfast...and the restaurant is welcoming...my only criticism is the horrible plastic glasses when served with a can of drink. Would go back again.

Menu and cabinet food available...sometimes specials on the board as well. Generous portions of hoeade goodness or try my favourite on a chilly day...the Seafood Chowder in it's own sourdough bowl. Yum!

Came here with few friends for lunch. The only thing we have enjoyed was the interior and decor. Food was below average - still frozen in the middle when we got it. Hot chocolates were pretty disappointing as well.

We visited for supper and breakfast when touring NZ with a stop over in Ohakune. Both were delicious, especially the huge bowl of breakfast coffee and the burger the evening before washed down with decent wine. Good value. And exceptionally friendly staff.

My family of teenagers love this cafe. After mountain biking or skiing, hot chocolates and great cakes and slices always go down well at lunchtime or in the late afternoon. The evening meals are like casual bar/pub food, the service is friendly and fast, and the atmosphere is like your neighbourhood local. It's a nice place to relax any time... More
