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.

I’m a regular customer at Oliver’s. The staff is friendly and provide excellent service. Need to wait long for Coffee or food. They are connected to the Coast Bar upstairs which means you can get a view of the beach or have large groups up there. I had my birthday recently and they accommodated 28 people easily and everyone was happy, my favourite dish is the Oliver’s Chicken salad. Love their coffee it is very good. I visit lots of cafes in Orewa as I’m a local and Oliver’s is the one a visit the most. Love the street cafe atmosphere you feel you are always on holiday.

Chose this cafe for Sunday brunch - extremely busy and a little confusing as although the Coast website said Coast was closed, (where we were planning to go), adjacent cafe Oliver’s uses their premises which includes the upstairs level, presumably just on weekends. Anyway staff very helpful so we sat upstairs at Coast and ordered from Oliver’s menu. Two big breakfasts were delicious, my poached eggs were just right and I was happy with the crispy bacon. My husband’s egg Benedict with salmon was good, and coffee was nice. Our friend’s daughter did not love her children’s meal pancakes, which looked perhaps pre-made or bought (she wasn’t sure, but did not finish them). The place was extremely busy and the staff did well. We will definitely return.

At Olivers Cafe in Orewa, felt like brunch on a sunny day, found a table (the last one). First time there, sat outside, bustling sidewalk, buzzy atmosphere, great seaviews; ordered, amazing chicken livers. (I have gait/walking challenges (stroke), wear a legbrace.) Friendly service, good portions, will visit again soon (.. dog-bowls handy & ready for thirsty four-legged passersby on a hot day).

I ordered a gf meal from the menu and I asked the waiter to make sure it was gf and after consuming the meal 40mins later I was racing to the bathroom and proceeded to spend the rest of my Saturday doing this.. I message the cafe the following day and still have had no response back from them. This is very poor management and when you ask for gf it because you need it to be gf

chilled water on table couldn't be drunk due to glasses were extremely hot, table of four 2 meals arrived within reasonable time other two meal arrived four minutes later. Main fish meal highly disappointing due to 2 fish very small serving also completely bland, no flavor as for scallop meal not sure this dish was anyway expectable due to amount of scallops. the other two meals didn't expect slab of poorly display of tofu finally eggs benedict was let down by totally over cooked or grill bacon. wouldn't ever bother again or recommend, maybe as a fully experienced qualified master chef I expected better.

Four of us, two happy, two, well, fritters only made very clear no bacon or salmon, came with bacon. Poached Eggs on toast, ciabatta, tiny slice in size from a ficelle so not on toast (impossible), by the side. Odd tiny 1 leaf of lettuce to make plate less empty........... Drinks orders, one forgotten.

I met family here for coffee and ordered the bacon muffin from the cabinet food display. Extremely disappointed with quality and presentation. The muffin was so hard and tough, it could not be cut with a knife, the mesculan salad leaves dumped on the side of plate minus any dressing.

It's situated on the sea front with street level tables but we sat on the 2nd floor which is probably the best. Less road noise better view and sheltered from most winds. We had brunch. Coffee was excellent, no fuss changing when I mistakenly ordered medium rather than small long blck. Though I'm not on a keto diet I was tempted by the Keto bowl. Itv was a great choice. Fresh, very tasty and enjoyable. My wife had a very good scrambled egg and bacon on ciabatta which was a good size; she could only manage half. The owner has obvious trained the Staff well. They were all friendly, cheerful and professional. I wish other cafes and restaurants would learn from this great example of service.

Walked passed here several times and it was always packed. For good reason we now know. The service is really quick and friendly and the coffee is creamy and strong even in the large bowl size. Going back tomorrow!

Very fast and friendly service. We went for breakfast with small children and the staff went out of their way to make sure the food came out quickly. Great selection of cabinet food and menu items. The portion size was great for the kids meals as well. Really enjoyed our visit here… very busy place. Topped it off with a wander down the beach afterwards.

Beef burger was incredibly chewy & dry. Way over cooked & cheap frozen beef patty. Also so overpriced at $25 & almost uneatable. Real shame food is not good as it’s a nice spot sitting outside.

Situated in what could loosely described as Orewa’s ‘strip’ this café has expanded exponentially since our last visit occupying the premises on either side – we ate in the original section which was busy due to the poor weather – the food was exceptional, innovative, elegantly presented, generous and above all very tasty. Prices are more than reasonable and the staff attentive. For a café a five in my book.

Cute little spot along the Main Street, just across from the beach. Generous sized meals which came out very fast. Particularly recommend the corn fritters, herbed scramble and the smoothies/frappes.

Such a lovely beach side restaurant with inside and outside seating along with two separate cabinets for you to order your sweets and savouries. Like: 1. Location fronting the beach and ambience just make the place look like a lovely place to sit at before going on to the beach for a stroll. 2. We enjoyed a nice long, lazy lunch there. Food was good and so were the cold coffees. Had one of the best calamari salads with a lovely sweet and sour dressing which was just so refreshing and the calamari was perfect and not chewy like most other places. Their creamy mushroom toast comes with a strip of bacon and a poached egg which was lovely. Anything you order from the sweet or savory deli counter is also good - we ordered a bacon and egg sandwich bun and an orange almond cake. Both delicious. Definitely coming back.
