Had the $13.50 big breakfast one day (includes quite a bit of food) and the half $9.50 option another morning. Friendly staff and very nice and quick with the food prep. Nice to sit outside to view the harbour and see the helicopters coming in and the tour boats leaving for the day.

Girls weekend escape. We came here for breakfast both mornings, 2 days in a row. The $13 Eggs Benny & The Berry Pancakes were delicious. I think the service here was great, the food was good and if I go back to Paihia I will return to Hansens to eat my breakfast and take in the stunning views.

The full breakfast was tasty and great value for money...included a bottomless cup of coffee. Good location on the waterfront overlooking the bay and the wharf. Friendly staff.

Been here many times and the big breakfast is always good value and comes with a bottomless filter coffee. Not the biggest breakfast by any means but for the price it would be hard to beat in this area. Staff dont seem too happy to be there unfortunately :( Great views make up for it !

The Hansen's Big Breakfast has its own sign making me believe this was a great option! How below average can it get. The bacon was over cooked (to the point of it looking like a burnt piece of plastic), the sausage quality was poor and i mean these were terrible. I couldn't tell if they were OFF, but they smelt...

I chose to dine al fresco because the café has very stunning views (managed to snap some shots) of the coastline! It is also located near the Wharf Building and i-site too. Food was ok, ordered some sandwiches, but the views made the lunch so much more enjoyable as the views were fantastic!!! Service was lacklustre; tables were not cleaned... More

Paihia is one of my favourite places on earth, so this may be a bit of a biased review. The table outback looking over the beautiful water to Russell, watching the ferries and helicopters leaving and arriving and feeling plain relaxed, is the BEST place to have a holiday breakfast. They cook the bacon just the way I like it... More

This cafe overlooks the Bay of Islands so the location is great, but the food was relatively expensive for what we got/the quality of what we got. I had French toast--it was too soggy for me and came with streaky bacon--which I didn't want and don't recall seeing mentioned on the menu description. If I return to Paihia, I'd try... More
