Stopped off at Eat in Matamata after the Hobbit tour. The five of us all had lovely meals / lunches - a couple of smashed avocados, ham and cheese omelette (was large) an eggs Benedict and BLAT. Coffee was good too. All in all a...great please to go. Despite being really busy when we arrived there was hardly any delay in the meals. Parking out on the street is easy too.More

Three of us enjoyed brunch here yesterday. Creamy mushrooms were declared delicious and the other two dishes were the smashed avocado and feta with poached eggs, one with bacon and one with smoked salmon. Both delicious and really nicely presented. Coffee was very good too....The cabinet food looked extremely delicious as well. Lovely friendly service. Would recommend.More

Wow I stopped in for a takeaway coffee and noticed their scones, blue cheese & spinach , I couldn’t believe how yummy it was I wish I had bought the lot !!! The flavour was fabulous I am a savoury person and so many times...I purchase a scone usually cheese and there is just no flavour BUT. My fellow scone lovers don’t miss trying Eats scones they are a taste sensation. The coffee was very good also. As I was waiting for my scone to be warmed and buttered the food being taken to tables looked amazing the presentation looked very high class. I will certainly be stopping there again not only to buy the Blue cheese scones but try the other foodMore

Eat Urban used to be fantastic. Sadly, it is now worthy only of walking past, unless you like small, over-priced servings of very average food and "coffee" that is just milky water that tastes almost like it may have been in the same room as...a coffee bean. I believe the ownership has changed recently. It has not been for the better and it is not hard to see why the staff seem disinterested.. I won't be back any time soon. There are several better places to go within a minute's walk.More

We stopped in this café for a cup of coffee and a strawberry smoothie to go. Ordered the long white coffee and were very pleased with it. $5.00 NZD for a large (the small was $3.80). The smoothie was very sweet but tasted find for...a pre-teenager. The service was good. No restroom on the premises. It would be a nice place to sit and read while enjoying a cup of coffee. We’d go back.More

Eat.Cafe is only a small cafe on the main shopping street of Matamata. But the staff seem very good at accommodating a crowd of people for lunch. Tables and chairs are provided inside or on the footpath. Waiting time for food is minimal inspite of...it being very busy. Staff are friendly and co-operative, and many choices of food are available.More

I stopped here one beautiful morning for brunch and the omelette I had was honestly the best one I've ever had. Great stuff.
