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.

Inadvertently forgot to say please when ordered coffee, and got verbally abused by grumpy barrista owner, who said in a loud voice, "round here we say please and thankyou" Have never encountered anyone like it. Try cutting people some slack and give more respect to...customers would be a good idea. Reading other reviews I can see I was not the only one.More

Had a day trip out of Auckland. Went to the Piha beach for a walk to see the black sand and fantastic rock formations. Stopped at the Piha Store for a drink and snacks. Very good coffee. Amazing brownie (indulgent). Got some good mandarins for...a healthy snack. Good range of sandwiches/rolls. Owner was very quick of course to pickup our Aussie accent. Exchanged some banter , so be prepared for a chat. All good fun. We asked about local walks. Owner gave us a tip on the Mercer Bay Loop. It was a good recommendation.More

Great store in Piha. Staff are super friendly. The coffee here is amazing. The choice of cakes, pies and other baked goods is never level. Definitely check this place out and grab some lunch

I came in for a browse and saw the range of food options. But I came away only with a gift soap though :). Staff were friendly and provided good advice on local restaurants that were open for dinner.

Absolutely horrible owners Peter Chapman and Sara. So rude to the customers in the store saying ‘can you not read a sign’ and making us feel stupid. I will never go back and from reading other reviews I will say this is a common problem...with their attitude. Unfortunately they seem to be the only option in Piha so I’d recommend people to pack their own food!!More

Very unfriendly staff with no idea of hospitality. The young woman behind the counter waved me to come in and when my wife and I entered she barked at me that 3 people were allowed in at a time. So we waited outside for someone...to leave. After our order I noticed that there were now 4 people in the store. Also she charged for a large coffee and my wife was given a small size.More

Called in here for a look as much as anything and was certainly well equipped for a smaller store. The staff we very friendly and Allpress coffee was great to see. It was mid arvo so didn’t actually have one mind you. Ended up having...to call back the next day as the Bach ran out of toilet paper. Got a pack of 6 and a Peanut slab ice cream and it cost $14.50. So what I would say is be mindful you don’t rely heavily on getting supplies here as you might go broke!More

There's a cafe next door, but it's hard to beat the bustling vibe of a neighbourhood store. While there's food (and a small array of groceries) most days, aim for the weekend, as there's a lot of fresh baking to choose from. Take the excellent...coffee outside to one of the stools or benches and watch surf life drift by - with or without a daily paper, also sold at the store. Not everyone likes the proprietor's opinions, but name me one person who everyone would agree with. And one stand-out corner store without a resident character to go with. This one even has a resident dog... All the baristas make good coffee. Our faves are the Danish or the custard loaves to go withMore

We grabbed lunch here on our trip to Piha and it was delicious. The selection wasn't huge, but they seemed to have something for everyone (options of gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, etc.). They also had clean/organic prepared foods as well as some organic jars/foods for...sale. You order and pay at the store and find a place to sit and eat. If I lived nearby I would likely stop here often!More
