Try the Dutch Oven Café, the now bright-orange (Dutch colours) former railway station. To go truly Dutch, also order the poffertjes, a traditional yeasty mini-pancake served with syrup that Dutch people hanker after as a taste of childhood. Try these bite-sized puffs of delight, and it's easy to see why. Poffertjes mix is also on sale over at the De Molen shop. TAKE A TRIP: A horse-drawn buggy or tram (depending on demand) operates in good weather from outside Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom taking visitors on a tour of Foxton. It's exciting enough just getting up close to the huge and beautiful clydesdale horses.
