A day at Whakatane doing the shops (great) some lunch and picking up berries
Was recommended this place to eat and yes. Very tidy...nice menu ...but.... surly staff member... no real greeting and when my friend changed her mind to a different main (more expensive)before...the order had even gone to the kitchen... well she may as well have rolled her eyes and told us we were a pain cos her attitude was just shocking. We also had to ask for more napkins (the ones they use are so thin) and boy that didn’t go down well either and we could see we were being talked about in the kitchen
In a town that’s doing so well after such a hard year I would have thought jobs were precious...we visit regularly but not sure we’d go back here despite good food can’t be bothered with bad customer serviceMore
It seems a very rare occurrence these days to find a cafe that is the full package. Well this is one that is in every way. Excellent hot coffee made perfectly. Our breakfasts were just as yummy. Beautifully cooked, crispy bacon, perfect eggs. The corn...fritters were plentiful, tasty & everything on the plate complimented each other.
The cabinet food looks the best l’ve seen in a long time. Couldn’t resist 2 freshly made savoury scones to take away. The staff are friendly & welcoming.
This cafe comes highly recommended.More

Kia ora Jane B,
Thank you for taking the time to post this review. It was great to hear that you enjoyed your meal (the fritters are a staff favourite too) and coffee during your recent visit. We hope to see you back here again...More
I really enjoy going to this cafe where they serve lovely food and are friendly and helpful. Because I am seriously gluten intolerant, I’m cautious when eating out, but they take extra care here to prevent cross contamination. So this cafe is my top choice...of cafe in Whakatane. Thanks guys.More
