  • While a little pricey, this is a great spot for a lazy afternoon. If the sun is out, there is plenty of room for the kids to run around too. Well worth a visit.
  • Very cool little sweet shop. You pick the lollies yourself from jars that line the walls and weigh your bounty at the end. The staff encourage you to taste any lollies you want before placing in your bag! Great stuff.
  • Visited this place on a recommendation- now a favourite. Location is stunning, and food is heavenly. A great place to take visitors and show off the best of Hawkes Bay
  • A great place to take the family for the afternoon. A nice cafe, excellent food and drinks. Excellent store with lots of African crafts. A beautiful outdoor area for the kids to run around, then top it all off with a visit to Ye Olde Sweet Shop for an amazing range of lollies and sweets. Plus there's some silly games to play. Always a fun visit.
  • Love the outdoor area. Get the high tea with some sweets from next door.
