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.

Absolutely delicious brunch. Eggs Benedict served on rosti were perfect. Polenta fries as crisp as can be and waffles were delicious

Best flat white & tuna melt ever. Various seating inside & out. Nicely decorated with a beach house feel and a bit of Scandinavian style. Fast service, convenient location & parking.

We popped in here for lunch after visiting Hot Water Beach. We grabbed table outside and took a while to decide what to eat as they had a great choice of food. The service was really friendly, and the food came quickly. Food was tasty...and we liked the coffee too.More

We stay in Hahei for 5 weeks over February and March and find this cafe an excellent stop for breakfast or brunch. Very friendly staff and a wide selection of food.

Ordered brunch and half way through we stepped away from the table to help our toddler toilet and the gulls got to all our food. The staff replaced everything without asking and refused any payment. The food was delicious and speedy… both times.

I really wanted to like this place and I am reluctantly writing a review before getting my food because the service is SOOOOOOOOOO slow. If you eat here maybe consider getting the premade food in the case because ordering off the menu is ridiculous. We...ordered eggs on toast and a smashed avo with two poached eggs - we've been waiting on those items for over 30 minutes and it's just so darn disappointing. The place is extremely busy because it's the only thing open in town and it's been pouring rain for the last 3 days. All things considered those items should not take this long. The environment is sooooooooo noisy too. We ended up getting our food just before I finished this review. As for the food, it was good but ok at the same time. The smashed avo is very Mediterranean with a cucumber, tomato, and red onion salsa. The eggs on toast is simply that raw bread with the style of eggs you want, that was super underwhelming.More

I think it opened around 10am to about 6pm. Sorry it was quite a while ago. Maybe they have a website or Facebook page? It was really good though!! Great veggie options.
