Went here for brunch. I ordered nachos and my partner ordered the chicken burger. My chips were hard and stale. The mince saved the dish, otherwise I would have sent it back. It may be beneficial to taste the chips before serving them to customers. My partner really enjoyed the chicken burger and said it was the best he had... More

We had a wonderful steak here. It is much more than a cafe, with excellent choice and good cooking. The staff members who served us were lovely.

Beautiful setting. Cafe however just average. Food and service wasn't bad, but didn't stand out either. And they don't have marshmallows for their hot chocolates!

Love this cafe. Have been here 3 times now. Had the blueberry hotcakes and they were covered with blueberries and maple syrup. Hubby had the Hansen's breakfast and loved it. Coffee is good. And the view is incredible! Right on the wharf.

We always enjoy the food at this café, it is varied and has both hot and cold dishes. Hansen's is central and the view over the sea is great. Service is quick and delivered with a smile. We could find no fault with anything . I recommend this place if you want a good meal quickly

If you are looking for lovely fresh food reasonably priced this is a must. The coffee could have been a little hotter but was still very nice. Nice outdoor seating looking over the water at Paihia.

Our family went here for breakfast two days in a row. We were met with a friendly greeting as soon as we walked in by the lady in the kitchen and the lady behind the counter. The sea views are lovely to gaze out over your morning coffee. There were food options to suit all my families tastes and the... More

We ate here yesterday for breakfast while holidaying with friends in Paihia. The staff are very friendly, meals are very cheap and are of excellent value. I don't think I have seen a café with such good prices. Lovely views over the water to Russell. Great spot to sit outside in the sun as we did. Very central to the... More

We ate here for breakfast in early February, 2014. The price was attractive for a full breakfast and the location and view can't be beat. The place wasn't terribly busy when we ordered at the counter. Good thing because the young lady seemed to be a bit new; not sure. After we ordered many more people arrived and ordered. Good... More
