Went for breakfast with visiting friends. The food was very nice, and plenty of it. The service was excellent - staff were very attentive. The view - what more can I say, it was stunning, best view in Paihia! Great sitting in the early morning sun.

I may not have seen this cafe if it hadn't been recommended to me and I wasn't specifically looking for it, as from the footpath it was just a flight of stairs. However, once up there, it has a beautiful view and the outdoor seating is bathed in sunlight for the morning. Decent amount of counter food as well as... More

One of the best places to begin the day. Excellent coffee,fresh practical breakfasts, good counter food. We bought lunch here for our day boat trip. The slice of carrot cake was huge and completely delicious, more than enough for two of us. Paihia has a lot of fried food on menus, and Top Deck goes for freshness.

When told only high tables were available from Alongside café we left and stumbled upon this cozy and small café with a fabulous verandah that over looks the Bay. The waitstaff are friendly and obliging and even though they were extremely busy still managed to allow me to order all my meals at once and stagger them out to perfection.... More

Huge wait time for breakfast. Group of four of us. All got their breakfast at different times. The other couple we were with had finished by the time we got ours. Couldn't eat our bagels as they were too soggy, we had wondered why the table before us had left theirs on their plate too but now we know why.... More
