Stop over for a coffee and tea break. Unfortunately we were late - they have a great collection of organic food. Will come back and try it. Very friendly when you get in with kids.

Funky tiny place but dear wife wanted crepes so we settled in. Gave our order to deadlocked young French waiter in bib farmer overalls who took our money and delivered hot chocolate and a super- healthy zingy drink. After a long wait he returned with...More

This little place is well hidden off the Main Street but look closely for steps leading down past the Four Square Supermarket. We called in for lunch delicious cider helped us consume a mound of Nachos topped with spicey chilli, cheese, salsa, jalapeño s it...More

We often used to go this cafe (under another name) when visiting Waiheke. It now has new owners, and it seems to be a vegan style cafe. Food was certainly not to our liking and we will not be going back there.More

We serve Eggs and bacon, we even have a Galette with bacon, banana and maple syrup! If you don't like this, I think you might be a Vegan in disguise! Plus we offer Croque Monsieur, a famous French toastie with ham, béchamel and cheese... We...More

Went for lunch several times. Good food and great coffee. Eftpos machine did not work both times and all customers had to either pay cash or go off to the money machine. Did not go back for a third time!

I'm a big fan! Love the Dal which is frequently on the menu. The juices are really good and large, too. Great place for a coffee with clients/ colleagues as well.

Spice is a touch of Waiheke, incredibly friendly staff, and excellent cafe styled food, and wonderful organic coffee. A must do when on Waiheke Ed.

We were scratching around for a lunch option because our 1st had sold out of the dish we fancied. This place looked like it had an interesting ambience and the all female crew were warm and engaging. The menu was bordering on the organic and...More

Our point of difference is our Coffee! We use organic beans and organic milk! Beautiful Chiasso coffee! We serve a variety of café food such as muffins, scones, quiches, sandwiches, wraps. But the difference is that most of our products are organic! Our quiches, wraps and most of our cakes are Gluten Free and we often use other sweeteners such as coconut sugar, rice syrup, honey or agave instead of cane sugar! We also make excellent buckwheat crepes, totally Gluten Free, Sweet crepes and Waffles. Our smoothies are mostly dairy free, organic and full of goodness. We also have a selection of fresh cold press juices according to the organic fruits and veggies in stock! We work with local suppliers when possible and a lot of our clientele is local so a real Waihekian experience! We provide Free WIFI but hope that you will talk to your neighbour instead!
