Stopped here for a cuppa on the way back to Auckland. Spoilt for choice with lots of tasty home baking. Had a delicious plum slice. Would definitely stop by again.

We saw the Beach Cafe in a broshure in our hotel. The food was nice, the pizza decent. The staff though was very unfriendly. No.smile, rushing to take orders and not paying attention to individual customers.

Driving back to Thames from Port Jackson and chanced on this great place for morning tea. A range of fresh pastries, cakes etc. we decided on a cheese and onion scone each. Rhubarb tart for later. Yum!

Being locals we go to Waiomu Beach Cafe regularly and often. Our latest visit was last Sunday, and as usual the service shone, along with the sun. My wife had the kumara pizza and I had the pork burger, both outstanding. Its always buzzing. Recommended.
