This cafe is right on the waterfront. You can sit inside or at one of the few wooden tables along the front under the trees. We came in late on a very cold and rainy morning after the hotel we were staying in was unable to do breakfast for us. I had the most gorgeous hot cakes, thick but still... More

We looked around Russell and this place looked appealing even though there was a queue out the door and it was pouring rain. We went for a walk and when we came back, we found a table. So glad we stopped here as my wife's seafood chowder and my burger were beautiful. Coffee and cake was also very nice. Service... More

Right there on the waterfront is Sally's overlooking the Russell to Paihia ferry crossing. Offered local raw oysters which were plump and rich washed down with a local Sauvignon Blanc followed by local fish of the day - a splendid snapper sitting in a plate of cream and caper sauce. Wonderful wait staff as we always have the pleasure of... More

Caught the ferry over to Russell and stopped off for a late lunch. Beautiful, tasty kalamari with a nice side salad. My companion had the mushroom and chorizo hash which was delicious.

This is a lovely bistro-style restaurant in a beautiful location. Our meals were delicious, well cooked and beautifully presented. Our waitress gave us much appreciated help with planning our only day in the area and we had a chat with Chef before leaving. Don't ask for kiwi bird impressions - they were unable to oblige!! Thanks for a memorable meal... More

Great food too- I had the snapper which was melt-in-your-mouth and my hubby had the haloumi which was lovely.what really blew me away though was the service; our waitress (sorry, I can't remember your name... Just back from Vietnam) was one of the best I've ever met- we had great conversations without her ever seeming intrusive, and she was just... More

Had coffee earlier and decided to go for dinner that evening. Restaurant was very busy but service was quick and very friendly. Situated on the waterfront with great views. Smallish menu but decent variety, I had oysters and pork and wife had halloumi and beef and all were very good portions and very tasty.

Only had Coffee and muffins both of which were lovely standard. Food on offer looked lovely with fish emphasis. Tables both inside and out overlooking the waters edge. Excellent value for money with very friendly service.

We were hanging out for a coffee fix about 11am one morning. Unfortunately their coffee was very disappointing; nothing mellow or enjoyable about it at all. But the service was friendly.

We had morning tea at Sally's and the setting is beautiful we sat at the tables on the side of road next to the ocean. It doesn't sound beautiful but the road is hardly used and the traffic has to travel at 20 kph. The coffees where good and the atmosphere delightful. The weather was fantastic so very memorable.
