Breakfast

Great value for money, wonderful service with a view. Nothing was too much trouble for the servers. Coffee was lovely - extra hot just the way I like it.

Upstairs overlooking the wharf and across the bay to Russell. Amazing views, great service and absolutely mouth watering food which was beautifully presented. Menu had great variety and service was wonderful. Would definately go straight back to this cafe when visiting Paihia again.

We came to Paihia for one week. Had a beautiful lunch here on the balcony overlooking the bay on a perfect day. We returned for coffee another day as we struggled to find anywhere else that made/served an affagato. Superb. Will certainly head here again on our next visit.

Lucky this place was nice, as it was one of the very few open at 8.30am on a Sunday morning. We didn't have a lot of time so both opted for the eggs & bacon - very tasty. Beautiful upstairs location, looking out over the waterfront.

What an amazing view from this restaurant. The coffee is great. We loved the date scones. Its a big no no though to have coffee served with some of it spilt in the saucer and no effort to rectify it.

Had a two for one grabone voucher. We ordered both the salmin and bacon eggs benedict. Both were great...the bagel they come with is quote fulling. The baby spinach was a bit overcooked, it may have been better raw, but other than that it was great, coffee was good too, and the view was amazing!

We went there this morning, as they they seemed to be the only cafe open for breakfast in Paihia. The bagel was warmed (not toasted). Bacon was similar barely cooked, looked like it had just come out of the packet and warmed. The spinach was over cooked, boiled to death limp and favor-less. We will definitely not return again.

Bought two grabones for my daughters birthday and because we were in North Auckland as well. Beautiful setting with a lovely out look over the water. The food was quick with happy staff. Lamb shank and kumera pie was to die for. Wonderful experience
