Fresh eggs from the property


Our café serves a selection of light meals, refreshing drinks and freshly ground coffee for you to enjoy throughout your day of bathing or even just for a quick stop on your travels. We serve simple and fresh dishes to enjoy in our cafe space which looks out over the stunning views of the Maruia River. During cooler months dine or enjoy a coffee next to the old stone fireplace. A little cafe with a lot of warmth and charm. As we’re committed to your wellness both inside and out, we have swapped fried food for wholesome food, and our gourmet pizza and bathe packages are always popular.
