Take a break with coffee & homemade bakeries

Coffee & Cakes

Grab a coffee at the Little Rocket

This is not just a coffee cart. This is the Little Rocket. Pride and joy of local legend Carol. Legendary for her hot drinks and homemade bakeries. From her bright yellow caravan, Carol will be pouring you your most memorable coffee of The Catlins. Not surprising at a creative place like this, for which a break becomes a feast for eyes and taste buds.

The Little Rocket is conveniently located on the Southern Scenic route – at the Lost Gypsy Gallery in Papatowai.

Carol’s Treats

Every morning, Carol-of-the-coffee-caravan whips up delicious bakeries. She plucks apples and cuts rhubarb from her garden in Papatowai, and turns them into the tastiest muffins and cakes. Retro slices, crumbling cookies, yeasty cinnamon scrolls….. all fresh out of the oven. Check out her yellow caravan at the Lost Gypsy. Here, you’ll be sipping off the best coffee in Papatowai, take away – or served in rustic mugs. You will be surrounded by mosaics, stained glass windows and all sorts of gizmos. Quirky as! It is the place you want to refuel – at the start of the day, after long walks & drives, or after the extraordinary Lost Gypsy’s Theatre. The perfect and must-do break on your Catlins tiki tour. Also, while you’re here, look out for Carol’s cutest little pooch, Ginny, and give her a pat.
