Was worth two visits from us.

We liked our lunch here well enough to go back the next day for a light breakfast. Service was friendly and prompt, food tasty.

We stayed in Orewa for 6 days and the breakfast was so perfect for us, we dinned there 6 mornings. Bobby the barista kept us entertained with his amazing skills and talents with the delicious coffees. The young lady Jess who was our waitress was such a delight. 10 out of 10 for service. Well done.

Consistently good service and good quality of food here. Yummy and fresh. Love the omelette was moist and not too rich, it was just the right portion. Seafood chowder was nice and thick. Chocolate frappé was nicely made: crushed ice done just the right size and amount, can definitely taste the chocolate. This is one of the best cafes in... More

Very reasonably priced food, cheaper than I expected for such a stunning location. A very nice Seafood Chowder for $12.99 and a side of fries with aioli for $6.50. Chowder was hot and crammed with lots of seafood, and came with a large wedge of ciabatta. Service was good - friendly and prompt. Would definitely return.

The view is great. The Olivers I knew, used to be alive and buzzy. It won awards for hospitality. The coffee - how can you go wrong with Allpress - well I now know that you can serve it luke warm and with a gritty taste. $17.99 for a B.L.A.T - I thought that it must come with a bowl... More

Good cafe to stop by for a coffee. Seating outside is popular with view of Orewa Beach. Not enough outside tables though. Some of the tables are quite uneven and it's easy for your coffee to get spilt, lol. Good service

A great spot for breakfast. Good sized meals, variety to choose from, kids breakfast choices, free wifi. I did order a soy coffee, and was given a normal milk coffee. After I queried the taste, they made me another coffee, so all worked out well. Right on the main road, so a little noisy, but opposite the beach. Would definitely... More
