First stop for our first coffee of the day was the Bugger Cafe at Pipiroa (a couple of kms before the Kopu bridge).

Highly recommend a refreshment stop at this quirky cafe… very cleverly based around the édgy’ word or expression – “Bugger”. The Cafe offers friendly staff, tasty food, good coffee and is adorned with photos of “bugger’ moments which create quite a talking point.

The room to the right of the food counter has a log fire and a TV screen with rolling footage of more ‘bugger’ moments to entertain you during your stay. Make sure you visit the toilets and check out the mirror! Their motto of “laugh a little @ Bugger cafe” certainly worked for us and made our date scone and coffee experience extra special.
