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.

Our Saturday morning go to...this Cafe is spacious and central caters for large groups as well. The breakfast menu is always delicious- you must try their sour dough comes all the way from a Waikato supplier. Friendly if you want to bring your fur babies. Great coffee we love it and highly recommend.

This used to be my favourite breakfast restaurant in Tauranga. Unfortunately, it has gone downhill. They don't get the eggs right like they used to, the big breakfast has been downsized, and the yummy sausage has been swapped out for a smaller, less tasty one. Apparently, they have new owners.

This is in the middle of the business district so that's a bit odd. has plenty of parking shared with the ANZ building. everything was delicious excepting the iced coffee - was basically just cold coffee with ice cube. service was brilliant, its very rare i find a menu with more than two things i want to try but i could have chosen all but one item....

Service very slow took 30 minutes to get food. No waiter took our order or give us water - we had to do that ourselves. Food below average - Bangladeshi curry watery and no heat. Fish tacos just pan fried fish & slaw with a little tartare sauce - nothing spectacular. Nice decor and cosy on a wet day. We won’t rush back.

We've been regular customers of Elizabeth Café ever since it was founded by Andrew almost 10 years ago. Its had a couple of owners since then but we've always found the food great. But today was so disappointing and extremely over priced for what it was. We ordered from the menu the salt and pepper squid and the PP Burger. The presentation was appalling, the burger even came out on a cheap plastic basket and the squid looked like it had been thrown onto the plate with a measly amount of salad. The squid was chewy and the burger was basic. Not worth $25. The service was below average and the hot chocolate was warmed up milk. We won't be going back any time soon. Such a shame.

It's been a while since I visited Elizabeth St and the place has changed. There is no longer table service (or any service really) with customers advised to order from the counter. We all ordered lunch along with coffees and tea. The meals were universally awful. No care was taken in presentation and it was as if no one had bothered to taste the food. The service was indifferent and the whole restaurant looked vaguely grubby. Even the tea was awful as there was not enough water in the pot and so the tea leaves were not properly submerged. We left feeling a little exploited as the lunch was not cheap and we did not enjoy it at all.

My husband absolutely loved the keto brekkie breakfast. He really raved about it. I had the keto waffle breakfast. There was an odd flavor in it but I’m glad I tried something new. The staff was really nice. I enjoyed the outdoor seating where it was more quiet.

Saw this place had been given good reviews and we were looking for somewhere for breakfast, the food looked great. The place itself is lovely but the staff were totally ambivalent. The food was good, coffee was excellent when we eventually got it after the food had been delivered. We just felt the staff were totally disinterested in serving, more interested in chatting together.

Have been befire and lioved the food. Service was never great but friendly enough. Today was terrible. Service was just awful but it was more the indifference with which we were treated, almost as though we were an inconvenience. We won't be going back.

Walked in off the street not knowing what to expect and wasn't digging the decor or lighting to start with. Staff were friendly & attentive when ordering, lots of people in quite a big space. Bacon benne with the rosti was good but the pulled pork burger & chips were really good. Good strong flavours coming thru in the pork & tender as well. Chips were a bit cold but good favours none the less, will be going back to try out the rest of the menu.

I wanted poached eggs on whole meal toast plus bacon. They only had sour dough toast so I ordered that. When my meal arrived the toast and bacon were too very over done, poached eggs okay. I did not enjoy the small amount of toast and bacon I was able to eat. Will not return here.

Came for lunch on Saturday. Service was excruciatingly slow. Waitress was very casual / perhaps new to waitressing. Took ages just to take our coffee orders, then had to wait ages to get our food order taken. Was there an hoot behind we got our meal. Despite there only being two other tables of people. The food was good however. Efficient , quality service is everything for me however. Just another Tauranga cafe / restaurant with hopeless service.

Rather a grey day but so open to outside didn't matter. Innovative breakfast menu, quite a wait for service but whenever dining need to be mindful of the staffing issues everywhere. Friendly staff, definitely worth a visit, great too as parking so easy!

Delicious French toast and a very nice hot Chocolate. Amazing cabinet food and good menu options. Very nice rose with lunch too. Slightly disappointed with COVID expectations, our vaccine pass wasn’t checked but our friends were. Staff also didn’t all wear masks properly. Needs to be some consistency. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Beautiful cafe with lots of space.
