We had a good breakfast. Juices are freshly squeezed. Very good coffee. The breakfast menu offers a good variety - from something light to a big plate of breakfast food. Everything was of good qualify and well prepared.

The hotel I stayed at in Tauranga didn't have a restaurant but I don't enjoy room service and do enjoy the opportunity to go and explore. The Med is located just off the strand and offers both internal and external seating, The food is of an exceptional quality and the coffee was one of the best I've had in NZ... More

I popped in from Hotel on Devonport for breakfast. Great muesli but, oh, the long black! This rated as one of my best so I had a second, and the young barista produced another of the same quality. Now, that takes skill. Great menu, by the way.

We headed off to The Med for breakfast having read the reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The eggs benedict withham were excellent; quite easily some of the best I've ever eaten and the full monty breakfast was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. The service was friendly and (bearing in mind how busy it was)... More

What impresses me most about The Med are the great coffees and the friendly service. The staff make a real effort to recognise you, know your name and to acknowledge you. This isn't true of all cafes

Having tried most cafés in the tga/mount over the last few months,it's very hard to go past the med. The consistency of the food and service is outstanding. So many others seem to get it wrong! It's just a vibrant,busy but totally relaxed atmosphere. There seems to be a great comraderie between staff and what are obviously very regular customers.... More

Waa impressed by the reasonably priced menu, compared to some other places we'd looked at in Tauranga and the inviting decor. and atmosphere. It seems a place the locals love aswell which is always a good sign. Had the eggs benedict and blueberry pancakes (split half with hubby) both good choices!

I often have breakfast there, and occasionally lunch. Food selection and serving sizes are always great.
