excellent food quality and attentive service.

My family always goes to this restaurant for tea or lunch as I am one who wants quality and am not keen on experimenting when tired and hungry after shopping and sight seeing.

Service was really slow for breakfast , could see others were also waiting and complaining. Strange because they seemed to have quite a few staff on board. My eggs benedict was OK. Hollandaise sauce was probably squeezed out of a bottle. Wife couldn't eat her crepes which were swimming in a mixture of fruit juice and yogurt. Kind of odd.... More

This upstairs cafe is easy to miss as it is not easily visible from the street. The coffees were great and the barista had gone to extra effort to put fancy designs such as musical notes and treble cleff etc on the top. The date scones were good enough to return for the next day. The service was outstanding.

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.
