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.

Fish and chips are excellent. Used to have the best pies in town but not so much now, still good though. The slices are nice, try the caramel and macadamia nut one. Friendly staff.

Okay food, good variety. The service was a bit slow, but there was only one person in the kitchen. The cafe food looked fresh but opted to order from the eat-in menu. The chef was adaptable with my order, but at an extra cost. There...is not too much competition so this cafe is a bit more expensive than others. Would go back again because it's the only one.More

I drive limousines and sometimes have no time for a good breakfast- so I stop in here for some ready cooked stuff like sandwiches, sausages, chicken nibbles; all to keep the engine going! It is tasty food, and the place is so popular, with seating...both inside and outside. Convenient to all at Waipapa Junction. And a bonus is that the owner and his wife are charming Sth-East Asian couple, with adorable young daughters; who know me now and speak Chinese Mandarin to me in the middle of the local supermarket!- so friendly and welcoming!!More

The food is well presented, but the flavors are too bland, also I do not like the coffee. Reminds me too much of food in England.

Ordered chips for the first time since purchased by new owners. Chips were crispy and tasted really good. Was my favourite takeaways in the area before, guaranteed to remain so!

My first encounter with Melliejoanz was while we were moving from Ruakaka to Kaitaia. My daughter was in a vehicle a few Ks ahead of us, she stopped for something to eat. As she was about to continue north she txt me to say Dad...you must try this place, now my daughter is a fussy eater to say the least so for her to give a place the thumbs up it must be special. This was back at the end of Sept 2014 and we have been back and forth to Whg Hospital a fair bit since for on going treatment after my wife's operation and we don't go past Melliejoanz either way without stopping. Real value for money and excellent tucker. B & RW TunstallMore

Stopped earlier this afternoon for lamb and mint pie (delicious) and the best double shot cappuccino I've had in a long while. Well done! I'll be stopping by again very soon :-)

We stopped here for coffee and a snack on the way to a meeting. The cappuccinos were good (what you'd normally expect) but the scones were terrific. They were nearly 20cm in diameter (the waitress - who was very friendly and helpful - asked if...we needed two pats of butter), but very light and fluffy. A real treat.More
