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.

I have been to this café several times and this is now my go to café. I will break down my experience's Staff; absolutely brilliant, nothing is too much trouble for them, if you like your coffee a certain way etc, they are just so...helpful. They also have a great sense of humor which means there is always laughter to be heard. Food; oh my gosh, the food is amazing !!!!!!! they make some good old favorites as well as the stock standard muffins cakes and so forth. Cleanliness; I am really fussy so having a clean environment is important as well as I don't want to eat somewhere that is unclean so five stars for keeping the café clean and fresh.More

Friendly & obliging staff who made me a fresh sandwich to order for a late lunch when there was very little left in the display cabinet. Another visit we got cold pies to takeaway to reheat for our dinner. Both good quality pastry and fillings....All the best for the new - since Aug 2020 - venture ladies.More

This is one of my very favourite little cafe's and is well worth going to Te Aroha to experience their delicious food. Love their sweetcorn fritter stack served with salad and they make the most delicious cupcake size banoffee pies and fantastic cappucino's too! Took...my grandson recently and he had the burger and wow what a burger that is, he said it is the best burger he has ever had, high praise indeed from a 12 yr old! (If you love banoffee pie it would pay to phone first as they don't have them everyday, they are worth booking in for) Love the macrocapa tables/seats and decor, a very cool little place but sadly the cafe is not open on the weekends, however the evening/night takeaway side of the business is.More

My go to when I visit Te Aroha, which has been fairly often as we have been looking for a property to purchase. This place is easy to find just up from Info centre near Domain, right by the pedestrian crossing - hence the name....Friendly service here with great food. Highly recommend nachos for lunch on a cold day. Another time I had a sandwich made perfectly to my specifications as I was kinda late getting lunch that day and pre-prepared ones were mostly gone. This business seems to be well patronised by local workers, residents and tradies in town. Cakes are a good varied selection - all I have tried have been wonderful choices.More

Not for the faint hearted as the portion size was double that we get in Australia. We both ordered the fresh battered fish and chips option with added battered mussel, oyster and scallop (2 of each). The fish was battered perfectly, chips had perfect amount...of salt, the mussels etc were lovely and succulent. Tartare sauce and tomato sauce were great. The salad was fresh. I even took half home as it was substantial and filling. Loved the fish n batter even better the next day. Great value for a family meal cost about $20 each.More

They care about the food they cook for you. We wouldn't go anywhere else for our fish and chips. Everyone is catered for. Our grandsons love the kids burgers!

Consistently nice - the chips are crisp and the fish is a decent size and succulent. We always end up getting more than we ordered. It's the best place for fish n chips in Te Aroha

I did enjoy the big breakfast. My wife had the burger and it came looking fresh with a generous portion of fries. My wife's coffee looked the part and she said she enjoyed her caramel latte. Me... I ordered a long black. It disappointed. As...a coffee snob, and I suspect we secretly all are, I expect a long black to be the easiest to make. But, so many get it wrong. Please float the coffee on the hot water so I can see, and taste the creamer. Don't drop water on the coffee from a great height and expect it to NOT look like dirty dish water. It does affect the flavour! Overall we enjoyed the experience. As I mentioned my coffee is made wrong often elsewhere.More

Have had their burgers a few times. Delicious and well prepared. The housemade tomato sauce really took the burger up a notch. Would like to see the daytime menu available at dinner (night) time.

Went here with friends and found delicious coffee. One of my friends is gluten free and I commented on the lack of this comodity. We were assured that a receipe was happening next week. Returning on Monday for another coffee there was an amazing gluten...free passionfruit slice in the cabinet. The service is excellent and friendly. Relaxing atmosphere.
