Tea was as weak as dishwater, tasteless. Date scone was hunt the dates. Music too loud and staff shouting to each other above the noise, language left a lot to be desired too. Chairs were filthy. Certainly won't be going back ever.
Had an awesome Bacon Sandwich from here when we were passing through.... Bloody amazing, chocca full of fabulous streaky bacon... highly recommended.
Coffee was spot on as well... will definitely be stopping next time we pass through.
Don't expect to be able to order much off of the printed menu above the kitchen. All sounds good but they have reduced it in reality to only bagels and toasted sandwiches. Even a banana smoothy is too much, apparently only served in summer!
Appalling...service, never returning here.More
We stopped here for a breakfast of coffee and toast one weekday morning. While toast wasn’t on the menu, and at first we were told they couldn’t do just toast, in the end it was possible. The coffee was good, and there was some great...looking baking in the cabinets - things like the cheese scone and caramel slice were large and looked very tempting. This cafe is clearly popular with the locals; groups of them were catching up with one another here.
Toilet at the rear, car parking on the street outside and the cafe is in the midst of a selection of local shops for you to stock up on essentials or grab a gift or two while you are in town. We especially love Taonga o te Ao, right across the street, with its selection of bespoke local product and Māori crafts. Ka mau te wehi!More
This is a favourite of locals and travellers alike and has been a ‘must stop’ cafe for us each time we travel north.
Menu and cabinet offer all the usual fare- but with a twist of sophisticated flavour and flair that makes everything totally tempting....On our most recent trip, we rang ahead and asked them to save us a corn fritter as we know they sell out fast!
From the welcoming rainbow flag to the warmth and efficiency of the owners, this cafe is a total gem.
Eat heaps then stroll across the road to the amazing new Hunderwasser Memorial Park- both reflect a community pride and creative muscle that makes Kawakawa unique and utterly fabulous.
BTW- coffee’s great too!More
Came up to Kawakawa with a friend, one daughter for my birthday lunch with my daughter who works at the local hospital
Arrived just before 1pm, friend, working daughter and I ordered out of the cabinet while other daughter stayed outside with her dog
When...she went it was a couple of minutes before 1,but assistant was making coffee, so it was 3 mins after 1 when she tried to order off the menu, only to be told the kitchen was closed, and she would have to get something out of cabinet, there was little left and nothing she wanted
Felt very disappointed and it put dampener on our day
The coffee was watery and my pani was not heated right through
Staff attitude was to just shrug their shoulders
We hear all the time of how places are struggling, with this attitude this place does not deceive to surviveMore
A great place to stop for coffee on the Twin Coast Northland cycle trip, unfortunately we didn’t get to experience the wonderful food we had been told about as we got there at 12.45pm and the kitchen shuts at 1pm. A shame as they lost...out on a lot of business for a Saturday lunchtime in the school holidays - maybe next timeMore
