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.

Just as good 6 months after our last stop. Great choices for lunch if you have food intolerances and really good coffee as well as the outdoor seating and sea view. The service is friendly and quick too.

Stopped on way home for a coffee,as was falling asleep. Also got a raspberry white chocolate slice..very small, cost $16!!! Seriously! Not going back again..slice was not worth $8, at all. That’s it, I’m over being ripped off for below average, not freshly baked food

On a recent trip to Thames (we're from Lower Hutt) hubby and I went for a drive up the coast one day and parked in the domain/picnic area on the beach opposite this cafe. Hubby went and got takeaway flat whites and a cheese scone for us, they were very nice. The scone was warm and buttered and up there with the best we've had. The cafe was very busy which is a good sign. We would definitely return next time we're in the area.

Quick friendly staff. 👍 Tasty food with a smile 👍 Good price for the food. For a cafe/restaurant it ticks all the boxes. Internal and external tables. Good!

Possibly one of the best on the peninsula! Wonderful coffee and lovely food in an awesome setting. Stopped on way home from selling at Keltic Fair. We’ll worth it.

We enjoyed the food here so much we came back. A nice variety of items with mostly outdoor seating but some indoor close by. I had a delicious pizza that had some sort of sweet potatoes on it with a hint of balsamoc vinegar and just a delicious combination of flavors. The second time we came back for some dessert and that was delicious as well. Friendly staff and fun to talk with the locals. Would recommend a stop here for lunch or breakfast.

My first review of Waiomu beach cafe was high. This review my second, is not so high Since my initial visit and multiple visits after, the customer service and food offering have both dropped. A lot. We have been left unattended and unacknowledged more than once. The menu food from today was appalling, particularly given what I paid for it. Poor quality, what seemed like cheap supermarket bread - only 1 piece, no flavour and zero effort put into the cook. The charge for my hot drink was the highest I have had across NZ and Australia Ever. And it came out after my food so I couldn’t even drink it warm. Disappointed with where this cafe is going. It’s a real shame, as they have a prime location and this could be a fantastic cafe!

We have eaten here whenever we come to visit Thames. We find the range of meals and the variety of take away food delicious. Recently I was travelling from Thames on a busy Saturday and I rang from Auckland and ordered take away food for four people as I was concerned that by the time we arrived the cafe may have run out of what we wanted. Annika could not have been more helpful taking the order and not wanting me to pay until I arrived. Everything had been set aside for us and Annika was most thoughtful making sure we had everything we needed. It was a pleasure eating at the beach made possible by Annika. Thank you

A warm and friendly welcome, excellent, tasty food options and quick efficient service make a luncheon here really enjoyable, Vaccine Passes are checked carefully and clear explanations of safe practices ensure confidence in this being a safe area. Top of my list for my birthday treat out!

Slightly awkward arrangements for covid level two mean you have to wait outside while one person at a time enters to make their selection from cabinet or menu choices. You then proceed to courtyard tables. Coffee wasn’t fantastic but the food was good and there were plenty of options from old fashioned Louise squares and Belgian slices to savoury fare.

Awesome location in summer time and really friendly staff! The only thing holding back from 5 stars is the overpriced food! I'm not sure how you can justify $9.50 for a piece of cake.
