Should be number 1 in Dargaville. Pasta of the day was so nice, had heaps of bacon and Parmesan. Mates steak was perfectly cooked. Friendly service too. Live 1000 km away otherwise I would be back regularly!

Wife and I both had the pasta of the day and it was excellent. Good wine selection and friendly staff. Tried to go back the next night but that was their one day off .

We knew that this was a tourist-recommended cafe but we still decided to splurge. In mid-winter and mid-week we were the only evening customers, but hopefully we made staying open worthwhile. Our meals were delicious and the artworks enhanced our experience.

Stopped in Dargaville on our way north, most cafe's looked a bit grim but this one was buzzing and had a great vibe. Great friendly staff. Only had coffee but wished we had not already eaten as the menu looked good, well worth the stop.

I'm glad you enjoyed your food, sorry you had to wait. We were prepared, but our customers all arrived in a two hour rush. This is not how the run/walk usually goes. We had a very quiet lunch that day & twice the breakfasts we...More
