Great Spot

We went back a second day as we found the food here really enjoyable. I would recommend it. Only open for breakfast and lunch and you don't have to sit down you can do take away as well. Very helpful staff as well.

I went here for breakfast as the other cafes around Paihia were full. This cafe is decent if you find yourself in a similar situation and are desperate for somewhere to eat. The coffee was average as was the food. I ordered the Cafe Breakfast and it was your bog standard European breakfast. Nothing special. The staff were okay and... More

While shopping in Paihia we stopped for coffee and eats at the upper Deck.Away from the madding crowd ,we watched the tourists along the waterfront enjoying the day.Friendly service and peaceful surrounds.

We got recommended to come here from our motel hosts because my partner wanted egg benedict for breakfast. It was a beautiful sunny morning so we got a table on the deck under an umbrella which was perfect! I forgot the name of my meal but it came with yummy crispy bacon, french toast and some delicious fresh fruits which... More

I love coming here. Staff are helpful and I seem to strike it at an alright time. Heading to any Café over New Years period in Paihia can be a night mare but I must strike it lucky every time. LOVE sitting up and having a seat on the deck. Great people watching spot. The burger with blue cheese was... More

First off, being up some stairs, this place always seems a bit quieter and calmer than other options. Menu pretty good - short and sweet. Service was good, friendly and prompt. Great views and option to sit outside. Brought kids, seats available, all good.

I am sitting here still waiting after ordering 50 minutes ago. I don't know what they do in the kitchen, but cooking and serving food isn't it. I will not step inside here again.

We went here for brunch. The food and coffee was quite good. I had a sandwich which was satisfying - nothing overly special or amazing but adequate. Probably not amazing enough to return for a second visit, but enjoyed our brunch.

Had to stand at the counter for 10 minutes waiting to ask to be seated and given a menu. Went back up to order our meal which took 40 minutes to come out. It'll be a good place to visit if you like soggy scrambled eggs and being told they've run out of 3 things you ordered at 10 in... More
