Thanks Dawn and Tina for a great breakfast. Loved the interior with your mix of textures in the woods and plants. The cabinet food on display looked amazing I was very tempted:-). Dawn was a delight - cheerful, smiley and helpful. Well done for an...awesome experienceMore

Food is delicious, especially the mushrooms on ciabatta, which was golden and gorgeous. OMG mouthwatering and tasty. That was the first days brunch on a glorious Sunday. The next afternoon was a late afternoon visit and had a scrummy Louise slice, the following morning was...mushroom and bacon filo with salad. I could eat here every day for a month and probably have the same thing twice. Staff are fabulous, very attentive and happy. Cafe is a busy place all day, service is superb and the coffee was spot on. Definitely would eat there again.More

We had coffee and morning tea at this cafe on suggestion of the people in the local iSite. It was the nicest cafe we went to in Whakatane. The food was very good and salads looked awesome. There was also nice service. They were very...busy as it was the height of tourist season. We will definitely go back next time we are in Whakatane.More

Always good to ask the locals for their favourites. A wonderful spot to cool off and refuel after a bike ride along the coastal pathway. Quick service, good range of options and decent sized portions. The staff were welcoming and keen to please.

Genuinely the best breakfast we had travelling around NZ. Also bought some fruit crumble slices to take away and they were absolutely delicious. We could taste everything. No ingredients were wasted!

A great range of food that tastes and looks good. The salad that come with the cabinet food is better than expected. A huge range of vegetarian foods.

Our friends recommended this cafe and we were not disappointed. A large selection of fresh and interesting food which is presented attractively. The hot chocolate was awesome and my rosti salad was delicious . A great cafe which we would recommend.
