Old World Charm

Escape from the city and enjoy this peaceful historic rural venue, The Olde Creamery Cafe, set amongst mature English trees and tranquil gardens,

The current owners purchased the very derelict building in 2001 with a vision of creating a country cafe in the historic building.The labour of love was completed restoring the building to its former glory, retaining the "olde worlde" feel about it and utilizing as much of the original features and materials as possible.

The owners pride themselves on the peaceful ambience they have created away from the hustle and bustle of city life - though only 12 minutes from Hamilton, Cambridge and Te Awamutu.
