Friendly staff on a quiet afternoon. $8 for two hot chocolates that were done for my young daughters. Clean and tidy. But does say to book for dinners so must be popular.

The waitresses were very personable and helpful with our selections but not too overpowering. The meal was well presented and very edible. Highly recommend you try this venue for a meal when in Pukekohe.

Not the cheapest place in town but easily the best food, in Summer it has a lovely outside area, worth the time.
