Plenty of tables in an area with plenty of shade, a playground and a decent sized grass area. Perfect spot to catch up on some work and reading before catching my flight out of Kerikeri - and I'd also happily return with my family. Good selection of standard NZ cafe-style fare. Not a lot if you're vegan though. I had the Cajun chicken salad which was generous and delicious if a little pricey. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Thanks for your great comments. We do have vegan cabinet food and can always prepare one off vegan dishes on request. Look forward to welcoming you back to Rusty

Had the lamb pita pockets and it was amazing, lovely mix of spices on the lamb... If only I had the recipe... husband had the Frittata from the cabinet and he really enjoyed it.
Awesome outdoor seating with lovely surroundings would highly recommend a visit

It's always a pleasure popping into this lovely local whenever we are on holiday is the winterless north! Service with a smile, the food is always great (you get what you pay for too! Huge meals) and the coffee is superb. I highly recommend the egg and bacon buttie for a big brekky! But the mushrooms are also to die for. Recommend place for a stopover on your travels

That for your great comments and recommendations to other locals & visitors. Yes the mushrooms are to die for - the recipe includes home grown Bay Leaves & Oregano. Look for to your return on your next visit.

This was a lovely stopover for some of the best Fish and Chips ever! Great staff, friendly and funny. Try a glass of wine and just sit outside and enjoy the day.
