The historic Langford Store is a 15 minute drive from Collingwood into the Aorere valley and has served the Bainham community as a general store and post office since 1928.
It is now a living museum where you can buy goods as they were sold 100 years ago, and with a wide variety of heirlook and other items for sale.
Now run by two escapees from Wellington, you can also enjoy a pot of tea or expresso coffee served up with home made treats. On a sunny day this a a unique experience, and is clearly very popular.
You can't stay overnight, but if you're interested in NZ history, or would just enjoy a different cafe experience, it's well worth the drive out from Collingwood.
It's open 6 days a week from 9am to 4pm, and closed on Friday.
