We stumbled upon this place by chance. I am normally someone who likes to read reviews or be given a recommendation as dislike wasting time and energy on food that is substandard. We were not disappointed. The fish and chips were fresh, tasty and the...service fast. The coffee was good and the dessert (chocolate cake) was beautifully presented and also yummy. The yard you can walk through which contains old arty type installations has seen better days and in need of a pep up but hey, would much rather have good food and service than fancy art. Its all a bit quirky but really enjoyed our overall experience and would definitely return.More

Such a great spot, close to the beach and an easy walk from Ferry Landing. The food was excellent - we had the burger and the chicken salad, both were delicious. Yes it’s quirky but that’s all part of its charm.

Cool place. Bit of a hippy vibe. Very relaxed and lovely setting. Coffee is good. Big breakky was ok, vegan breakfast was better. Smoked fish pie was good. Bread baked fresh was beautiful. Call in.

Called in here for lunch and should have taken the unkempt yard as a omen for our experience. The exterior might have once been a fun eccentric arty place, but was overgrown with stuff just laying around and generally in state of needing some TLC....Inside was better and we were given menus and found ourselves a table outside. We all fancied some fresh Coromandel fish, and all ordered the crumbed Fish and Chips meal. While awaiting our meal delivery we watched a family of mice climbing amongst the trellis in the garden adjacent to the restaurant door which was a little disconcerting, but certainly not the worst of our experience. Good portion and looked tasty when it arrived. However, the crumb-coat was very salty, and the fish tasted strange and slightly slimy with the first bite. As seasoned fisher-people, we could not pick the fish variety. A few bites later and the ammonia-odour of fish that is FAR too past its best by emerged from the salty coating. A passing waiter quizzed our unfinished plates and was very gracious and apologetic, immediately offering to refund the cost of our meals, which was appreciated. We retreated back to our accommodation to await the inevitable health impacts from ingesting a quantity of food that was clearly off. How the cook did not know (or ignored the fact) the fish was not fresh was beyond me. They certainly couldn't blame mask-wearing getting in the way as the entire kitchen staff were wearing their masks down around their chins which was clearly visible from the counter.More

Really nice setting, and the smoked kahawai salad was super tasty. Would definitely visit again, and again.

Friendly service but was bad sitting especially inside with Flys everywhere I couldn't enjoy my breakfast. We both choosed mushrooms with eggs & it was really bad salty beside burnt bread I felt with upset stomach all day don't know they might used old bread...& it's toasted many times I even didn't finsh my breakfast. I won't recommend this place there are plenty of good cafes on whitianga wharf to eat in.More

Standout eggs Benedict. We had the fish (smoked kingfish) and bacon ones both were Devine. The coffee and service were top notch

Just along from Flaxmill where we were staying. Quirky with some fascinating sculptures. Opening hours flexible it seems at present.
