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.

A great, reasonably priced cafe set in Te Aroha domain and near to the spa pools. The food is quickly delivered by a very friendly staff. The views from the cafe is stunning. There's a scrummy choice of cakes and the savoury food we had...was gluten free. You can order either off the menu or something from the cabinet which we had. The pumpkin and feta pie which also included spinach was delicious. It's our favourite Te Aroha cafe.More

Simple menu, but everything was delicious. Nice relaxed atmosphere. We had Eggs Benedict on a bagel, kids hotcakes, kids bacon and egg and a piece of coconut passion fruit cake. Coffee was also very good.

Great little spot for a wee bite to eat. Ordered the big breakfast and it certainly filled the spot. Nice streaky bacon, eggs of your choice, sausage and potato rosti. If your in town look this place up.

Always tasty cabinet food with reasonable prices. Quality loose leaf tea served. Lots of seating options indoor or out. Nice to visit before or after the private hot pools next door.

My husband always, and only, orders eggs benny in every cafe in every town/city in every country that has it. I order it occasionally as I am usually disappointed in the hollandaise sauce or various other components. Not here. The eggs were perfectly cooked and...nearly pure orange yolks they were so rich and organic, served with perfectly cooked bacon, fresh spinach on a bagel with the best hollandaise I have ever had. Service there is fast, and professional. This cafe has got it right. Coffee was great too. Don't miss the cakes they are delicious. We had coconut passion fruit cake waiting for our benny's.More
