Have stopped for afternoon tea and cake and for lunch on Sunday. Roland the chef and owner offers an extensive knowledge of food, beer and wine.
His German dishes are superb for something different, but his use of fresh food from the local area is well done. He had desserts to die for many hand made ice cream based with fruit from his orchard. A well considered choice of wines and imported beers as well as an interesting Kawerau brew in the German tradition (white beer). Ambiance, fun, good service from our wait lady who is also German.
The four of us shared the entire dessert menu and left very happy with the whole experience. A must go to weekend treat in a peaceful spot out of town.
