I had the Dear coasties complete. Free range eggs (your choice) bacon ,whipped feta ,tomato ,avocado ,toast ,Amazing ..friendly ,accommodating, catering staff, menu that will suit all ( I believe) great value. My wife had the smashed avocado on toast (I had to finish it...off to much for her)😂 Even the cabinet food was awesome brought back to motel a piece of raspberry crumble(for me) plum cake, and a big ginger slice (for my wife) to be had with a coffee later on. The establishment is very clean,nice decor, inside and covered outside dining. Bar ... we will definitely be eating there again most probably within 24 hrs.More
In a world of eateries where service and food so often disappoint, Dear Coasties is like a breath of fresh air. We stopped in for lunch on Sunday and left happy. It was very busy, but we were seated immediately and the little dog and...baby’s pram were not a problem. The service was very fast, very organised and our orders were spot on. And even though the staff were busy, they were also very capable and very friendly - well done! The menu was varied and interesting and the dishes were beautifully presented. Fish & Chips, salmon bagel, mushroom/chicken soup and the iced coffees were all good. When you’re next passing through Orewa, do yourself a favour and stop in at Dear Coasties.More
There is such a wide variety of food options that's it's so hard to choose! Everything we have tried has been excellent and the coffee is great too. It's always very busy, but the staff are lovely and it's worth the slight wait.
We came to Dear Coasties for takeaway coffees, and were greeted by the friendly staff who asked if we were dining in or having things to takeaway. You felt very welcomed! When being served they were lovely! Coffees came out fast and were very tasty!...The cafe it’s self was tidy and clean! Definitely coming back next time we visit Orewa!!More
Saturday breakfast for 6 on 2/1. Fab attentive service with a smile. Seated quickly, served quickly, food arrived all together. Nothing a problem in an extremely busy cafe that was run like a well oiled machine. A table of six that have or...had their own businesses, operated in hospitality and we were all in awe how this cafe was run. And then there is the fabulous menu and even more the fabulous food. Eggs bene with soft shell crab, Eggs bene with salmon, Smashed Avo with sides and trad Eggs Bene with Rosti. A varied and exciting menu. Thank you for delighting us all on all levels, not an easy task in hospitality these days. We will be back. Well done.More
A group of us dined at Dear Coasties for breakfast and were well pleased. The meal prices were average, but the meals were large and very nice. If you get offered "an extra roti for $5", take it - they are great! Beautiful coffee, too...(and I am a self-confessed coffee snob).
The owner greeted us at the door and found us a table together. Very friendly and chatty.
I would definitely return to DC.More
my husband and i treated ourselves out to breakfast and thought we would give dear costies a go, we both had such amazing meals, coffees, teas. The meals are pieces of art, and have the lovely combination of tradition but also freshness and herbacious. The...only problem is trying to get a table, its always packed, which is a testament to the food. Ambience is great, service was also good. Also an area where you can take your fur babies with you. Keep it up Coasties ;)More
