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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I would also give this cafe 10/10. Mince and cheese pie and bacon and mushroom pie were delicious. All the food is made on site and is great. The burger the person at the next table was having also looked impressive. Nice coffee and friendly...helpful staff. It has been painted inside recently and looks very smart and inviting. Definitely worth that turn off the main road.More

We faced some heavy traffic coming into Katikati so thought we'd stop here for lunch instead if right in town. So glad that we did!!! I'd give a 10/10 for everything - the food, the drinks, the team and the location. Perfect location as you...don't have to veer off your usual track but you feel like you're in a nice tranquil setting. We had the smashed avo on toast and the mince on toast - both plates were a great size and cooked to perfection. Also had a flat white and an iced chocolate which were just as good as the food. The staff are really kind and friendly. Stop in when you get a chance.More

Great place for brunch with a nice view of the Kaimai. Took friends a few times and have always had a fabulous time. The coffees are great and I am very fussy about them! Our favourite is creamy mushrooms with poached eggs on top. The...staff are always very friendly and efficient.More

We had to try the burgers with chips on the side. This was a new dish for us. The chicken in the burger was a pattie made in-house. Beautifully flavored. Same for the beef burger. As always thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It would be just...the thing with the addition of a glass of wine or a beer.More

The manageress welcomed us warmly as she does with all customers. We have been taste testing the menu and the offerings in the cabinet. We so appreciate the beautifully made and presented dishes. The cakes and slices are divine. The liquor licence is a great...addition. We keep coming back for more and can't wait to try the fish dish with a drink for a lovely lunch.More
