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.

Focaccia bread is delicious and great value for $8.50. Fed the 2 teenagers. Lots of gf options in the cabinet too.

We loved our brunch here - the food was super fresh, deliciously combining flavours and beautiful presentation. We could feel the love and attention in every dish. Big selection of European style baking (yumm!) among others. The unique waffle dish was a celebration in the...mouth. The place was fully packed and still people were coming in. Considering this the service was really good - staff were overly busy yet were still friendly and helpful. Would definitely eat here again!More

Stopped over for smoothies and a bite to eat. We were told by the coffee maker that the kitchen is closed but can order from cabinet.... Fair enough. As we are waiting to be served, staff walking around calling out the kitchen is closed. Still...no one serving. We had to finally ask someone to serve us and the first thing she tells us is that the kitchen is closed in case we didn't understand. Finally ordering and a number of items are not avail from the drink menu. Cashier then even refunded for yet another smoothie not avail. Was almost ready to walk across the road to McDs Food was average when it did arrive. Never ever going back to this place., have never encountered such poor service.More

I'd say this place is up there with one of the best in Tauranga/Mount. Food is ALWAYS delicious. I had the shashuka this morning and it was just what I needed on this rainy Tuesday morning.

Very delicious food and vibe in this cafe and bakery. Elspeth's bakery and Eddie's cafe share the space and offer lots of cabinet food and exciting menu options. We visited 3 times during our stay and everything we had was amazing!

Food and coffee were lovely. However, service was very poor. They missed one of our orders, and after realising, came to our table not to apologise but firmly tell us we’d need to pay for it if we wanted the order (fine, that’s what we...thought we’d already done). It took over an hour for our coffees to arrive - we asked multiple staff about them and were told the wait was long. We eventually discovered the coffee order was never put through and that we hadn’t paid - but we had. There was no apology and we won’t go back because of the poor service.More

Consistently great. This time had the smashed potatoes with eggs and salmon, loved the sharp contrast of the pickled veges, just the right amount. Beautiful presentation, really innovative menu which is great to see as so may cafes are just same old same old.. coffee...strong with a great kick! The bakery is beautiful and toooooo tempting!!

Great lunch offerings and lovely setting a few blocks from the beach. I had a delicious omelette with gluten free bread. My husband’s tuna melt was on thick sourdough bread with crispy crust. Beer/ginger/ lime drink was refreshing and not too sweet.

So good we couldn't stay away and visited 3 times during our week Tauranga. Staff were good, coffee was great, but the bread and pastries were a revelation. The baked on premises foccacia was superb, but for me the plain croissants were truly magnificent- generous...in size, but superbly light, layered and buttery. I shall die happy. :}More

The food is superb. Best coffee I had over the holiday period. It was extremely busy so sadly we had to go with counter food rather than from the menu as we couldn’t wait. They appear to bake on the premises- the Ficelle were excellent...(my teenage daughter thought it was the best she has ever had). My highlight was the mushroom and onion focaccia- $6.90 and enough for a meal.More
