An awesome breakfast every time!

Breakfast was perfect here, great whether you wanted cooked or just toast! We couldn't swap fried eggs for scrambled which was a shame as they cook both, but still delicious. And we love sitting out back right by the sea.

Really bad start in the new year in this cafe! Service staff was ok, but the boss was really unfriendly and absolut not interested about my behaviour. 12.5% more charge for holiday day, but less service, no wifi at this time and so on.....

Arrived for breakfast, order was taken by a staff member who didn't give the impression they wanted to be there. Only half full yet waited for 25 minutes for eggs and bacon. Not the cleanest place!! Go somewhere else. The only redeeming feature is the view!!!!

Not a smile or a good morning from staff taking order. Ordered Hansen's breakfast to share as we couldn't finish one individually. Lady did not bother to give us an extra plate when we told her we were sharing. When I wanted water to fill my bottle for my trip, they told me to fill it at a tap outside... More

If you would like a great place to have breakfast while in Paihia, this is the place to go. The second morning we were able to sit outside right by the water's edge, watching the ferries, people and the birds. Very helpful, friendly service and good value food. Highly recommend this cafe.

This cafe is right by the Paihia wharf, and they are convenient for breakfast when you have activities there, even early in the morning. There is a selection of coffees, grab-and-go muffins/scones/desserts, as well as a nice menu of hot breakfasts to choose from. They have indoor and outdoor tables that look out over the busy waterfront. The Paihia I-site... More
