It is also the junction between - going to Taupo and Rotovegas or going to Law's Town (Wanganui - interestingly if you do a spell check on Wanganui - it suggests Wanking!).
A bit of advice - if you are doing a long hall trip - and need a huge feed - go to the Rat Hole and order a Rump Steak. They are huge - and what goes better than a salad bar complete with curred egg salad (answer = nothing).
The two highlight of today's trip where - the "mothered goose" cafe - and an antique shop where I bought $10 bucks of marbles for the kids (and me!!). A real rural experience - complete with horse racing belting out of an old radio (for sale for $50 bucks by the way).
The Mothered Goose cafe is located in the old BNZ building - and has beautiful polished wood flooring. It also has a Deli fill of goodies (with a fantastic black and white check marble floor) - that will each be featured in the next few blogs.
The cakes - we had some chocolate caramel fudge thing - are just delicious and the coffee is just great.
The Mothered Goose is a bloody delight!
We were there about 2:30 ish - some farming types sat in the far corner on the comfy couches - some rich babe (who drove a Red Beemer) in between - and we sat near the counter.
I really like Coffee Shops that extend their brand into additional gourmet products.
For instance they had home branded such treats as:
- Sage Apple and Onion chutney;
- Spicy Apricot Sauce;
- Pickled Ginger;
- Maple Mayo;
- Passion fruit Vinaigrette...
All in all - Bulls is an enjoyable experience - and I really appreciated the efforts the City Council have made to brand this amazing little town.
