Brown Sugar in Taihape

We seem to be up and down the road between Hamilton and Palmerston North quite a bit for various reasons – chiefly Iggy’s granddaughter, perhaps :-). I think we’ll have to make a habit of dropping into Brown Sugar up a side street at the northern end of Taihape each time we travel. The menu is different each time we drop in, the food divinely home-made tasting and the décor is fun. I really like the kids’ play area here – the kind of play area that would keep my brothers engaged for hours and hours when they were little boys. It’s not a red and yellow plasticky thing that adults think should be appealing to children, but a genuine play area where kid’s imagination can roam free and parents watch from a discreet distance while they enjoy Brown Sugar’s excellent coffee.

How you know you are at the right place.

Somewhere that kids can be kids - and grown ups can sit back and be grown ups.

    What! Do you mean that I should not have played with the diggers and trucks?

  2. You are inviting me to say something about never having grown up? Surely not!

    Awesome play area. That would get us there!

  4. Somewhere for the whole family to break a journey and sit back and relax.
