Willow Glen now has its on-licence meaning we can sell alcohol on-site!


Willow Glen is now owned by Mike and Suzie Simmonds. Suzie previously sold a variety of sweet treats and baking at a market stall called Gingerbread Cottage, while Mike managed the beehives and organic products. Now at a new home, Mike and Suzie are determined to deliver even higher quality goods at a beautiful location. Our goal is to enhance and extend your experience in the stunning countryside of Gordonton. Come for a visit and see the exciting changes that are happening every day!

The Willow Glen Cafe offers a warm welcome, great service and delicious food. We are located in Gordonton, a 6-minute drive from Rototuna shops. We are open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and coffee. The counter and cabinets are bursting with a selection of homemade savoury and sweet options that are regularly changed depending on the season.


As well as the cabinet food, there's an all-day menu with plenty of delicious choices. To start the day, Willow Glen does a Farmer's Big Breakfast, homemade muesli, waffles, and more. Lunch items include pulled pork tacos, beef burgers and fish and chips. There is also a kids' menu and a great specials board which changes every day!


You also have the opportunity to dine outside in the beautiful garden which was originally designed by the renowned Eion Scarrow of Dig This - one of NZ's television history greats. The grounds are constantly being improved and have a mix of mature trees and new plantings and a generous lawn which provide the perfect background for those special occasion photos.


Willow Glen is available for birthdays, weddings or any other special occasion. Call 07 824 3691 or to discuss the available options.
