We had a lovely meal in the Smashed Pipi over Easter weekend and would be very happy to return on our next trip. The restaurant area felt warm and inviting. There were some cosy couch areas suitable for anyone just wanting a coffee and to unwind and plenty of tables with surprisingly comfortable wooden seats for the diners. We started... More

Pleasant courtyard and cosy atmosphere inside. Good coffee and lovely fresh muffin but felt the BLT was overpriced for the quantity and presentation of food. Should have gone to Bennetts as planned.

After appalling experience at the local Mangawhai Tavern, the Smashed Pip was an absolute pleasure. Relaxed and very friendly and attentive staff, great pizzas, value prices for drinks and good indoor/outdoor areas to enjoy a good social gathering. Multiple TV's to watch sport.

With a quirky art and craft gallery attached (and particularly good glass craft), the restaurant has a ready made clientele for its home baking (try the savoury muffins) and the best coffee in Mangawhai. I especially loved with tiny cups of milk with a hot chocolate whisk and marshmallows for the kids - just before they went off and played... More

we had Smashed Pipi highly recommended to us but the day we were there we all felt the food and drinks were average rather than exceptional. the art gallery next door is worth a look.

Been here twice for breakfast/brunch. Food and service was rather average. Setting is a little unusual but interesting. Overall - nothing to complain about but also nothing outstanding. Our preferred option is Bennetts café, we think the service and food there is significantly better.

Have been here before so thought Id take cousins that hadnt. We were all dissapointed. They didnt give us a number on ordering and said we didnt need one, we noticed others had one. Consequently we ordered half and half pizza so when the waitress came out and said who ordered half and half we said we did. Some part... More

My husband and I are in NZ for 3 weeks and were driving down from The Bay of Islands towards Lake Taupo and did a side trip to see the East coast off the highway-very beautiful. Stopped here as there was no restaurant on or overlooking the beach. Didn't look like much and served a lot of breakfast items, but... More
