Amazing salad coffee and more!! Always a winner with vegan options available !! Their house salad has over fourteen different ingredients and is super tasty ! Multiple sculptures stand in the large gardens in between the tables in the shade of large mature trees. Would recommend highly!

Two brother wizard chefs making great food. One was very loud and proved to be very entertaining. The other was brooding and handsome. Delightfully mincy waitresses . 10/10 would eat here again. Only one critique was the bread tasted as though they had forgotten to salt it.

My husband and I were so pleasantly surprised at the quality of food at Eggsentric Café. We first stopped in for a late breakfast muffic and coffee thinking it was mainly a breakfast café. It's a funky little café and we weren't expecting anything out of the ordinary for food. We decided to book dinner there and were overwhelmed by... More

Friends introduced us to a lunch of scallops in a pernod sauce several visits ago and it's a meal to die for. On our infrequent trips from the UK to visit them we now make sure we have at least one lunchtime visit for our favourite dish. Quirky seems to be a popular word amongst reviewers for this eatery and... More

This was a cute little cafe, and perfect place for a little rest. The food was really good, and enjoyed the atmosphere.

Stopped in for lunch on a recommendation. Ordered local fish in lemon cream sauce and it was to die for. It is a funky artsy sort of establishment with a relaxed and informal atmosphere. A definite chef works in the kitchen. Definitely worth giving it a try.

Crumbly lacking creaminess and richness. Wasn't worth the $7.50 for a two scoop which was really 1 and a half scoops.

We caught the Ferry over and had a 10 minute stroll to Eggsentric, what a fantastic meal we had, enjoyed by all. Excellent service and the food was out of this world. Will be going back before they shut for winter

I had a wonderful meal at Eggscentric with a group of friends on a Tuesday evening. I had previously been there for lunch, which was also great, but my dining experience was superb! It was a lovely balmy evening. We caught the ferry from Whitianga to Ferry Landing and then strolled along the pathway fror around 10 minutes to the... More
