The Little Tart Café


Cafés & delis

Run by a bubbly mother and daughter duo this tiny (dare I use the word cute?) café is well worth a look-in. The counter brims with freshly-made, filling-packed sandwiches, yummy cakes and home baking.

The Copper Tree



Warm and stylish, the Copper Tree restaurant was a faultless spirit-lifting remedy for a lonely Mothering Sunday evening (yes, even intrepid travel writers get a little home-sick at times). Streaks ahead of its small town setting, the food and service were superb. Groups of diners seemed particularly taken with their choice of top-notch pizzas while my delicately-presented stuffed chicken breast was not the only piece of art to please the eye (the restaurant spills into a gallery of interesting local pieces).

The Copper Tree
  • Prices: Dinner: $7 - $14 entrees; $20 - $28 mains; $9 - $13 mains.

Aqua Velvet



If I were to open my own café, it would be modelled on Aqua Velvet. A friendly, bohemian atmosphere with welcoming staff, properly-cooked porridge (I don’t like it when the oats are still hard!), a soaring roof with space for birds to fly in and out, and an impressive music roster. International musicians are a common sight (and sound) in Raglan.

  • Prices: $10 for a coffee and porridge.

Waikato and King Country Highlights

  • Check out the English-style countryside of Cambridge. The rural village is famous for breeding and training thoroughbred horses. You may even catch a spot of cricket on the green.
  • Take full advantage of the rolling landscapes, country gardens and rich farmland of the Waikato. This is Hobbit country and the most beautiful of shires.
