Whenever we are in an area we always check to see if they have a Breakers Cafe. We find the food well priced, well presented and the staff very friendly and helpful. We had breakfast here, and then returned for lunch.

Good, reasonably priced food. Deals each day for extra bargains. Good for the kids, and has a small play area, as well as a pool table and table tennis table.

My experience here was okay. I didnt like the brown hair, blue eyed girl who served us. She either had a hard day before we arrived or she just didnt like her job. The food was great which made up for the bad customer service. We had a steak meal with crispy chips and got the 2nd meal the same... More

I was disappointed by my breakfast, the sausage was a very poor example (tasted like a pre-cooked banger). I asked for Hollandaise on the side that was only fair in taste and the Tomato was not cooked until soft, it was really hard and had not flavour.

I have to say this really isn't my kind of place but it was 4:40pm, I hadn't had lunch and they had a sandwich board outside promoting whitebait fritters - how could I resist? The service was super friendly, the food arrived quickly and was absolutely delicious. So, it just goes to show it doesn't hurt to break your habits... More

Good service, solid food and a fairly lively sports bar atmosphere. You could do worse than Breakers if you are required to while away winter evenings during an excursion to Wanganui. We were visiting unwell family members so it was nice to unwind in this sort of gregarious atmosphere after the daily ration of sadness. Easy on the wallet,too.

I stay in Wanganui often on business and always eat at Breakers in these trips. Very pleasant staff. The food is very good value too. Never disappointed with what is served, which is saying something, as I have eaten here at least a few dozen times.

Went here August 24th for lunch just for a quick bite. The fire in the bottom part is really wonderful and large and the person who was on the bar (taking the orders) gave us good service and made us feel welcome. Theres also a little area for kids to play in. The food itself was ok although i will... More
