Pizza paradise: The Yello Shack cafe in Springfield really is a
The Yello Shack
known as a
great place to
stop on that

has really set palates alight with
tantalising offerings from its wood-fired
pizza oven -- a real hit with locals and
"Following the earthquakes the
number of visitors dropped off a bit,"
owners Leisa and Clayton Yaxley said.
"We decided to rethink what we did
and imported an Italian-made oven
capable of cooking three or four pizzas
at a time.
"I was lucky enough to acquire a
secret recipe for the bases," Leisa said.
"This creates a scrumptious thin crust
-- slightly crispy and with a smoky
flavour -- and this is unique, not at all
like commercial varieties."
With 10 pizzas to select from, there is
something for everyone. Toppings are
of the best quality, so that you know
you are eating the genuine article.
The pizzas are also available to take
away -- a great idea for a home meal or
to last all the way over the Main Divide.
Also on the menu are old favourites:
Yello Shack platters, hot chips, wedges,
salads, home-made desserts and a
great children's menu, along with a
specials board for added variety.
Thirsty? The bar is extensive enough
to cater for all tastes.
The Yello Shack is great for locals,
who can get good meals without going
far. Another drawcard is its ability to
cater for private functions. The
experienced resident chef, who has
worked at Terrace Downs, can provide
for all eventualities and will create
something special using fresh produce
from the outside garden and glass-
house. Already, although it is just
September, people are booking ahead
for end-of-year functions and most are
looking for somewhere different and
enjoyable to create a memorable

''The plan is to turn the existing cafe
and cabinet sales area into more of a
processing area and to develop the
pizzeria itself into an area designed as
a lunch bar, for pizza, 'healthy habits,'
and takeaways," he said.
"We are used to places where rolls
and sandwiches are prepared in front
of customers, but really, I was doing
that in Auckland 20 years ago."
The aim is to provide healthy
options, but more of them -- rolls,
wraps, pita bread, sandwiches, a great
range of fillings and salads -- all made
to customers' specifications. You are
going to be able to select from roast
lamb, pork and chicken along with
seafood and cold meats.
"One of the differences is that all the
bread is made here. That really does
Rocky's has always been well-known
for variety. It is pleasant to walk in and
see the wide range of offerings and to
be spoiled for choice. And, we are told,
Rock's pizza is just the best.
The aim is something for everyone --
a snack for a passerby right through to
a full blown pizza and pasta feast for a
family gathering or a sports group.
With the way Lincoln is growing
somewhere to get a great feed , either
to enjoy in the sunshine outside or to
take home, is going to be very popular.
Call in and sample the wares -- you
are sure to want to come back and go
another round with Rocky's!
