I have to write more words so trip advisor will publish this but my title says it all. More bacon more lettuce wonderful tomatoes. We thought it was just us as we haven't had this in quite a long time. As we were leaving we noticed nearly everyone there had ordered it.

We were a large group and went here for breakfast on a very rainy day. It is a nice little place and has excellent/friendly service and good food. It is pretty pricey but the food quality is good. The banana pancakes were very tasty.

Loved this cafe for brunch. I have been eating my way around NZ sampling eggs Benedict and this place is in my top 2. (The other is a farmshop outside of matamata)

We stopped here for coffee before heading up to Cathedral Cove, and it was so good we came back for lunch. The breakfast menu seems to be served all day so I had scrambled eggs and bacon which was huge and delicious. My husband had a smoked salmon salad which also looked quite generous and was very nice.

Sorry, but I don't remember exactly what I ordered for lunch. We had flown in from the US to Aukland and immediately went to Hahei. We stopped here for lunch and what my wife and I both ordered were absolutely fantastic!

It's the only Cafe in town so it's a little overrated. Overpriced typical food. Our waitress was so rude when we said we got the wrong coffees. If you're starving its one of the only places to go since the town is extremely small. I wouldn't go again better to pack a lunch and eat at the beach with a... More

Hahei is a great spot, but there is not a lot of choice for good coffee. So to stumble across Hahei Beach Cafe and Coffee Supreme coffee, we were very happy. On several visits to the cafe we got great service along with great coffee and food.

Stopped here for coffee on the way to Cathedral Cove and lunch on the way back. Popular place, they offered good coffee, and eggs Benedict. Nice staff and food.
