We had a great breakfast here - despite being busy, our meals arrived within a reasonable timeframe. There is plenty of seating both inside and outside the cafe. We had the eggs Benedict and the pancakes with bacon & banana. Both were generous portions and tasty. The coffee however, was disappointing - we ordered medium size and they came in... More

A small bustling café with a great menu down in the Town Basin in Whangarei. Both inside and outside seating is available. Staff were very friendly and even though the café seemed busy there was not a long wait for meals.

Had a nice fish and chips and coffee for less than 20 all together. Good value and not bad service. A few flies in the restaurant. All of my friends were fairly pleased with their meals too.
