Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very disappointing. Small amount of food for high cost. Manager not interested in feedback. Waitress excellent though. Would not recommend for dinners.

Fabulous food and awesome friendly staff. It was a very busy Saturday morning the place was full but we couldn't fault it at all. Coffee was the best.

Good spot for breakfast, varied menu, good coffee and a great view as well. The water guns for the seagulls was an added novelty.

We stopped here on the way from the Peninsula to Russel / Paihia (Bay of islands). It's not far from the highway and a perfect stop in the early morning with the sunrise. Coffee and cake were great! If you take the Highway 10, make...sure to stop and enjoy the view (the sun rises over the water of the bay). Plenty of seating is available outside. Watch out for seagulls! Not an issue, while we were there. They provide splash guns as seen in the pictures:) We did not have to use them.More

Great little local place for breakfast which is reasonably priced too. It is one of the only places to open early enough for those that would like the make the most of their day by getting out and about to explore.

Lovely cafe in a good position with outdoor seating overlooking the bay. Coffee and food was good and reasonably priced. The service was prompt and the staff were friendly. The seagulls hovered constantly, but there were water pistols on hand to shoo them away! Quite...a novelty!More
