The Carriage Cafe in Oakura is one of the most unique dining experiences in New Zealand. Patrons literally dine in an old train carriage! A step back in time. Some might say it's a gimmick, but I would use the words 'quaint', 'charming' and 'authentic'. The food can be average and underwhelming at times, but their cakes and slices are usually pretty good, and their coffee, delicious. And you can't fault the service.
The last time we came here my children had an absolute blast, they LOVE trains especially my 3 year old. They didn't want to leave! Delicious cafe food served either in the actual train carriage or on the train platform. The whole setup is fantastic, really authentic. The staff were great, sorted th children with suitable snack type food to keep them happy. Tasty coffee, perfect place for train fans!
