Came to this place with high expectations and ordered the hotcakes. It came out with two very thin flat looking pancakes with what looked like whipped cream and raspberry all over it. The cream was so watery and the raspberry had no flavor. The pancake itself tasted like grease and was soaked in bacon oil. Being a vegetarian I was so disgusted with the taste of the oil that overpowered the hotcakes. It was inedible and when I spoke to the manager about it, he did not even try to create a solution for the unsatisfactory taste of the food and instead got defensive and made me look like I did not know what I was talking about. Will never go back to this cafe and it was a waste of money! Left the place still hungry and felt like I just gave $16.50 away for a disgusting aftertaste left in my mouth.

We have a bach in Matapouri, a few kms up the coast from here, but when we want to go out for breakfast, lunch or brunch, this is our first choice. The atmosphere is light and airy, with some nice artwork on the walls by local artists (usually for sale). Their menu is pretty much standard NZ cafe food, but all well done, served promptly and at a good price. Nice outdoor area, so dogs are welcome.

We holiday in Ngunguru every year and always look forward to visiting Salt Air Cafe. Great food, especially the home made pies. They sell fresh homemade bread every day. Coffee is good.
Worth a look.
