On a waterfront with high end restaurants to choose from, this down to earth place right on the waterfront is a good choice offering fabulous value and good food. Bottomless coffee for brekkie right on the bay....what more could you want?

This place does a good breakfast that provides value for money but probably not much more. Half portion breakfast for $9.50 which includes diner style free coffee, 1 bacon, sausage, egg, beans, toast and hash brown. For $13.50 you get double that portion size. Sausages are really tasty so I would return for them alone but it's pretty basic outside... More

Dropped into Hansen's for the $13.50 Big Breakfast. 2 of everything; bacon, sausage, eggs, hash browns, toast and baked beans. Lovely German lass doing the orders. Breakfast arrived within 10 minutes and my eggs were exactly how I had ordered them; perfect! Bottomless coffee too. Told my friends about my experience for breakfast and 9 of them booked in for...

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.
