Visited one morning just as it opened for breakfast. A long time since we have come across such unwelcoming and sour staff. Food and coffee was OK but the staff need to go find jobs they enjoy.

We have loved this place and in fact it was one of our favorite. Unfortunately it has gone really downhill. Patchy service and the menu was much reduced. The staff looked stressed and overall it has gone downhill. Such a shame as such a great location. Still a good place for a drink though.

Excellent location across the road from the beach, beautiful views, lovely vibrant atmosphere, good place for a catch up and some tasty bar snacks.

Had a delicious lunch here with a fantastic view. I went for the falafel burger but there were plenty other options for the meat eater. The burger was huge and with the chips filled me up adequately until dinner time. There was a good choice of snacks and drinks for those who wanted to take away and sit on the beach.

As we were being shown around Waiheke, our host pointed out this place andsaid it was good. So we went back later and he was RIGHT! Just across from Onetangi Beach, the place has indoor and outdoor seating. You go up to the order counter, tell 'em what you want, they give you a flag thingie with a number on it, and when your order is ready they know where to bring it. The Saturday we were there it was pretty busy but we got in line and placed our orders. My wife and I shared a Sticky Lamb Shoulder burger and a roasted beet salad. The Lamb Burger was large and plenty to share. Very tasty, with a mint and beet relish, feta cheese and basil mayo. The Beet salad was advertised as a side dish, but it was big too. Lots of nice big pieces of tender roasted beets, nuts, feta cheese in a tangy dressing.
Great place to people watch, then go to the beach for a walk or a dip.
Our host told us that Waiheke Island sees about 50 weddings each weekend (maybe just the summer) and sure enough, at the end of the beach there was a wedding.
Lots of good things on the menu, including mussels which I'm kicking myself for not ordering.
