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.

Lovely courtyard. Coffee is excellent. The most generous sandwiches I’ve seen in a long time- we bought takeaways for day hikes here twice, then had lunch, and sampled the local beer brewed 25m away! All excellent, service friendly and delicious. Despite what you’re told about prices on Great Barrier this is no more expensive than on the mainland and for the quality probably a little cheaper.

Firstly, the food is so tasty and there is a great range of vegetarian and vegan food and treats catering for all needs. I came to eat at The Fat Puku several times during what was clearly some of their busiest season and despite being swamped, the service was always quick and super friendly. Can't believe one of the best cafes in New Zealand is in

We went there early afternoon for a coffee. It was very busy as you would expect in the Xmas holiday season, but the wait was not too long. The coffee was finely 'tuned', but the home-made cakes were out of this world. Extremely enjoyable. Unfortunately we had not time to go back and try other food.

Tuesday morning, busy as! That says it all really. Great coffee, good, fast, friendly service. We ate the Buddah bowl and eggs on ciabatta with mushrooms. Both very tasty. Nice setting/atmosphere inside and out.

I got coffee from here a couple of times during our stay and it was good every time. The kitchen was down due to illness when we stopped to eat but the cabinet food looked good and the roast veg frittata I had was tasty. Like most places on the island the prices are getting up there. Nice outdoor area to sit and its worth a visit.

Easily the best burgers to ever grace my taste buds. Buns are pillow soft, the patties are flavourful & a generous serving size, all the vegetables are crisp & fresh. Truely Fat Pukus are cat's pyjamas as well as being the cat's burgers.

We arrived just before closing time and Mr. Aidan was so kind to still let us dine in quickly. The burgers were fantastic in taste, looks as well as fast on the table. The place it self looks chilled and the price I would rate it as medium. All in All we loved Aidan, his service and especially the tasty burgers! Thank you for having us - all the way from Dubai!

Had a basic lunch of a panini and some wedges, but both were very tasty. The home made sweet chilli sauce with the wedges was great. The service was good and the other customers seemed happy there. Was not too busy when I was there but have been told that it can get a bit hectic from time to time and that most things can be sold out by 2pm.

Our group visited twice, for quick coffee(which it was) and lunch. Staff are friendly, good choice of food, and plenty of seating.When competition increases I will be interested to see how they improve to stay no. 2 !!😊

Stopped here for lunch a few times during our stay. Beautiful fresh food, yummy sweet treats and great coffee. Great spot on a sunny day and plenty of under cover areas on a wet day too.

The smashed avo was amazing. The service was not welcoming at all, The two guys at the front were disinterested and not welcoming - a real pity. Hence we only visited once.
