Fodor's Review

About 10 minutes from the city, this farm café is a worthy lunch stop for those exploring the countryside or returning from a trip to the Te Apiti Wind Farm. Not surprisingly, the fare is local, organic, and free range, and includes healthy infusions of fresh herbs, homemade tofu herb fritters being a prime example. There's also a wholesome range of classic Kiwi breakfasts, like local-made Edelweiss sausage, free-range bacon, scrambled eggs, and grilled tomato. You can walk it off and calm the spirit with a wander through the 2 acres of herb gardens (NZ$3.50 self-guided, map provided). The herbs are used in healing products made and sold here.
