It's so good that we went every morning during our 4 day stay! Nothing better than a hearty breakfast to set you up for the day & this gorgeous cafe really delivers. My personal favourite was the rice & avo bowl but it's all so...good! Fantastic staff & service too! Top notch!More

Yes this place is vegetarian only which we hadn’t appreciated until we sat down and read the menu (and no one will in our party of three is vegetarian) but please don’t let that put you off whether you are a meat eater or not...- the food is absolutely delicious and great sized portions. The coffee was also great. I had the rice / avocado / egg bowl with coconut curry leaf sambal, pickled verges, mangal pickled coconut yoghurt and it was the best thing I’ve had in ages.More

Definitely not vegetarian but all 5 of us highly rated the food as well as the service of this lovely restaurant.. I had the best 3 cheese toasted sandwich ever, and the carrot cake was superb. Couldn't coax the recipe from them so guess we...will be back :)More

Did not realize it was vege. No problem with that except there was nothing I looked at and thought - I can eat that. Myself and another of our group left for next door. Hubby and rest of them stayed. Hubby had waffles - not...happy with them at all.More

Menu is completely vegetarian, which i think is cool. I really enjoyed the Turkish eggs, haven't had them like that before. Great quality of coffee and the business seems to have a conscience; local products, organic listings etc. Small selection of tasty cabinet goods and...although the wine list is small they are great quality listings.More

Stumbled upon this cafe on a brief stop in Coromandel town. The food and service is alright, good coffee. 4 stars pretty spot on.

We visited this Cafe Twice in December 2019 from the UK. Once on our way to the North of the Coromandel peninsula and then again on our way South. This was quiet simply the best cafe we stopped at during our month in NZ. The...first visit was for a Coffee and cake stop with us both having a Cranberry Scone, with the second visit for Breakfast and a takeaway Cranberry Scone. I would love to have this Cranberry Scone recipe, guess ill be waiting till December 2029, till i get to taste these Scones again. Definitely worth a stop if you are passing.More
