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.

Good food and well cooked, service was really good as the patron served the meals he cooked always with a smile and a comment or two. Friendly couple, he cooks, she serves drinks and takes orders. A good selection on the menu's, food and drinks. Good for all the family as reasonably priced throughout.

We were so pleased to find Kava Cafe ,we had been on a long detour due to road works at Ngatea we were hungry and thirsty. My Husband had the Gourmet beef Burger with fries well cooked and nicely served. I had the BLAT which was nicely cooked and tasty. Long black coffees good too.

Clean tables and surfaces, food hot and well cooked. The service was very efficient, although very busy I still got my drink (tea) quickly. The fries were well-drained, with hardly any oil on the plate/bowl, and they were hot. Will go again when next in Waihi. Might have a burger then as they looked delicious and huge.

Tucked into the Waihi main drag, this little spot has a few hidden gems. I’ve visited here a few times and always had a pleasant experience. I usually go for their big breakfast and my wife gets the toasties. The big breakfast is just the right size and full of flavour and my wife tells me that her favourite toasties are here.

A cold day sees us seeking a warm spot for coffee. We settle into a place that is clean but a little tired. The service is quick and we have a latte and a flat white - both hot and good. We try one of the home baked raspberry and custard tarts - too much raspberry jam and too little custard.

Great friendly staff who were rightly proud of the fact that everything is made on premises. We had a wide range of ages (3-75) and therefore a reasonable cross section of the food. Everything was delicious and nobody got to finish their dish themselves because they all looked so good the others just had to try. Scones, both cheese and jam with cream were a table hit, flavour and crumbly texture bang on. Soup was rich and hearty, ditto for pie with mash n gravy. Everything else was equally good, and portions were a good size. We will definitely be going back any time we are in town…

KavaCafe, had my attention with bold red decor, especially around Christmas time. (I have gait/walking challenges (stroke), wear a legbrace.) Spacious, great spot; big, big servings, delicious food, friendly efficient service.

Thought we would try Kava Cafe as it is under new management and wasn't disappointed. Service was excellent, and the meal was well cooked and yummy. Well worth stopping off. Will definitely be going back when next that way. YYYUUUMMMMYYY.

Very friendly atmosphere. Staff were welcoming and service was efficient. Honest, standard cafe food. The decor is somewhat tired.

Give this a sound miss. There are plenty of places in Waihi to eat. Kava needs to up its game plan if they want to stay open. F for fail.

Does that C in Chai Latte stand for chunky? Very off putting and undrinkable.Foodcame quick which was good, this was maybe due to the fact that it looked like last nights heated up leftovers and was dry and tasteless, we will not return.

if you had any problems with any of the drinks or food we apologise if it didnt suit you Maybe a word to the staff could have rectified any problems plus if the food was that bad we couldnt understand why you managed to eat most of it

We went there as not much else was open. No smile to start with and a fairly basic attempt at Eggs Benny, Perhaps too much Kava
