A family brunch with the grandparents (and small children), so you get the idea.. Wonderful location with a pretty amazing view of the harbour. Indoor and outdoor seating. 5 stars for the location. Food was standard cafe fare, eggs benedict, french toast, omelettes etc. Nothing special but certainly not disappointing. 3 stars for food. I would have like something a... More

Brought a overseas visitor here for lunch after viewing the Naval Museum. The food was good and the service prompt and polite staff overall a very pleasant cafe. Love the fact that there was several water bowls out for visiting dogs specially as this would be a great area to walk your dog.

This cafe is located in the building of the Navy Museum at the end of the beach-side walkway - heading east from the Devonport Ferry Terminal. You will not see the sign for the cafe until you are actually at the Museum entrance. We had two variants of the corn fritters, nicely prepared with or without bacon. We also sampled... More

Found this place by chance, it is next to the Naval Museum in Torpedo Bay which is well worth visiting and has free entry. The cafe has very good outdoor seating with views over the harbour, delightful on a warm sunny day. The food is well prepared and overall plenty of variety. The coffee is excellent and the service to... More

After a walk along the waterfront on a cold windy afternoon, was more than pleased to see this café was open and ordered coffee and carrot cake. Must say the coffee was excellent and the carrot cake delicious. The views across to Auckland were just spectacular especially as we watched the weather changing every twenty minutes to no views when... More

I received a verbal recommendation about the Navel Museum at Torpedo Bay and as we had not had breakfast so we thought we would try the Cafe out. The welcome we received as we walked in was wonderful, the menu presented to us had a variety of dishes. We opted for a "Big Breakfast" every morsel burst with flavour, excellent... More

This café is one of my new favourites after taking my kids and my 'not so abled' mother there as we escaped the hospital for an afternoon. Parking at the door is a definite advantage and the service was efficient despite a full house. Sitting outside watching the boats go by is also a definite plus and our coffee was... More

Food was excellent staff helpful and friendly. Good service table was cleared quickly once we had finished which is good. Great place to bring kids. Would recommend as we will be coming back next time we're up that way.
