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.

Service very friendly and fast, we had two eggs bene, one with salmon, the other vegetarian with haloumi and tomato, both excellent. Actually the haloumi & tomato with a touch of balsamic is a really nice idea I have not seen anywhere else. Coffee also...very good. Highly recommended for visitors to Napier/Ahuriri.More

Found this gem in Ahuriri. Saw homemade cheeky chips so thought we would give it a try. Only wanted a light lunch so 1 between 2 people. Thank goodness we did not order one each. Portions are large and food is delicious with very reasonable...prices.More

We dropped in this morning for breakfast. It was stormy and bucketing down. The Cafe looks humble but what they do is anything but! They have a huge breakfast menu with most of the usual options, but take it up a gear with some genuine...Maaori kai (food) and rhe chef's own take on it. I grabbed a boil up pie, with genuine bacon bones. Pai rawe! Outstanding. My mate had the best lambs fry and bacon I have ever tasted (I sneaked some.from his plate), and I had the Big Bennie, which came.with a homemade hash cake of his own invention. He puts so much arohaa (love ) into his cooking, and obviously creates each serving with a wonderful intention. This has to be the best breakfast I have eaten in a long time. O, and not to forget the coffee. Simply perfect. Outstanding.More

We had a morning coffee here about 9am during a recent short stay in Napier. Lots of seating both inside and out. The food looked quite nice but we hadn’t long had breakfast so only wanted a coffee. It was okay, nothing super special but...certainly far from the worst we’ve ever had.More

My husband and I called into the cafe for a coffee this morning . Requested two large flat whites and sweet muffins. We had been to the cafe on prior occasions and had been very happy with what we ordered. On this occasion we were...most disappointed. The coffee watery and lacked body.The muffins were dry and didn’t feel fresh. Hopefully next time we visit there will be an improvement.More

We were staying close by in a motel and decided to come into Ahuriri for some breakfast instead of going into Napier. We literally got out the car and saw MK Cafe straightaway. My husband ordered Bubble & Squeak and I just wanted some jam...on toast. Both meals did not disappoint! We thoroughly enjoyed the feast and would definitely come back when in Napier again. Both men behind the counter did a great job! The cafe may be small, but it more than makes up for it in food! Great place!More
