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.

I cover the central North Island and bottom third of the South Island for work and this is the best cafe I have ever visited. I would even rank it better than anything I had in 11 years in Aussie. The salads were so fresh, it’s like they were straight from the garden to the table. Great choices and variety and I loved that I could have two salads in my bowl. The drink, well the best ever soy chai latte ever. Just so smooth and not too sweet. To top off the visit, the staff were friendly, helpful, knew the ingredients off by heart and smiled so genuinely, I visit Hawkes Bay every month and so pleased to finally find a decent cafe for lunch. Even tempted to buy food to take for dinner as well.

Have been coming here since we started regularly holidaying in Havelock North. There are closer coffee shops to us but we keep coming here as the coffee is great and the service very friendly....some of the people even remember us from year to year! Also very good food and a very handy location en route to many of the local attractions and activities.

Great cafe and pleased to find while staying in Hastings. Fantastic coffee, great food, knowledgeable staff. Use local, fresh ingredients. Service was fab. Couldn't fault it apart from saying I wish it was closer to where we live!

I've been here many times in the past. This time I didn't recognise any of the staff so perhaps there's been new management and a radical overhaul. The coffee, historically, was always good but today was it weak and flavourless. Asking for a cappuccino, the barista produced something akin to a flat white. Maybe a lack of barista skill; maybe not caring enough. Pity. I won't be going back.

Delicious breakfast, great service and the best coffee! Interior has been tarted up and the cabinet was colourful and well-stocked. Will always recommend this place!

We arrived at 12.30- had to be away by 1pm. By 12.55 we checked on our order- they said not long. By 1.05 pm we said not to bother if they hadn’t started it or we would takeaway if they were nearly done. Received the takeaway by 1.15. Went and as we were driving I was so hungry I went to eat my gf toast and saw that it wasnt gf!!! When I order any food I am very explicit. I am coeliac so I look for what could be gf - check and add a couple of slices of toast - I also make it clear that I am coeliac so I need a bit of care taken with utensils, toaster etc I asked for 2x slices of white toast and a small portion of potato salad. Hubby ordered eggs Benedict w bacon which was pretty hard to eat as a takeaway. So we drove back and I spoke to the boy at the till and said it’s not gf?! He said it’s white and you asked for white. Did he even know what coeliac is? Did he understand gluten-free, obviously not. I am so upset at having to wait for half an hour for two slices of toast and a cabinet salad and then find it’s not gf!!! Train your staff!!!! Have someone on the register taking orders who knows what they are doing and let people know if there is a wait!!?So very annoyed and disappointed

We stopped in here for lunch. They have a reasonable selection of dishes to choose from. I had a mixture of the broccoli and kumara salads and they were both very good. The coffee was also very good (they roast their own beans).

Great spot to enjoy a breakfast bagel and coffees while watching the local action. The breakfast bagel was an excellent combo of egg, bacon and cream cheese. Our mocha and flat white were really good as prep for our Te Mata trek. Washrooms were fit for purpose. We'd be back!

We visit Havelock North semi-regularly and Bay Espresso in the Village has become our go-to place. The coffee is very good; the counter/cabinet food is delicious, and on top of it all the staff are really friendly, welcoming and helpful. I think it's the staff that really make this place stand out.

We happened upon Bay Espresso while looking for breakfast. One café was closed, another just slammed. Bay espresso has a simple but well varied menu and delicious coffee! Service was friend and quick... great quality to value breakfast. The corn fritters and creamy mushrooms were delicious.

I had brekkie there and had to share the meal with so many resident flys. I know it is "that time of year" where they are all over the place - so 1 or 2 is OK - but not about 50! There must be some way of controlling this! Food was good though!
