The Yellow House Cafe is the perfect spot to refuel- and also get an art fix with a Artists Open Studios artist working on-site and exhibiting. Make sure you pay Colin Langmead a visit and chat to him about how he can personalise his work to sentimentalise it to you or your family! http://openstudios.co.nz/colin-langmead/
