We stopped thr while walking to a view point and were told tht the ice creams are amazing and a must. Had to wait for about 10 mins as no one was available at the ice cream counter or otherwise available for help but once we were sorted the ice creams were worth the effort. We tried 3 of the... More

This is an eccentric cafe with all manor of strange things in and out of the property. My partner considered the French toast was the best she'd had and my Carrot cake was delicious. I would say don't miss it.

We have a holiday home at Whitianga and one of our regular special treats is to catch the ferry, enjoy a lovely walk and delight in the food and atmosphere at Eggsentric. It's a perfect evening every time. The kumara chips and scallops are divine.

Omg, homemade ice cream that they have is so good that we had to try another flavour. Yummy! One of the best ice creams I had in NZ! And the place is so nice, relaxed, open spaces, artistic, friendly staff. Loved it!

The surroundings are artistic, eclectic and funky, with a lot of artwork in the gardens. The menu is extensive and the food is absolutely amazing. Try the scallops with Pernod sauce! This was the best meal I've had in years.

Tasting platter really good my husband particularly enjoyed the haloumi, great to see shepherds pie offered for children instead of usual rubbish.Fish wonderful though given its reputation you would expect handcut chips and meals not to take 50mins to arrive. Place interesting but maybe a little tired and in need of a spring clean.

Have been in this cafe for late breakfast and enjoyed our best eggs Benedict during our two month travel in NZL. Service was friendly and setting quite cool for such a remote place. Also very suitable for families due to tranquil garden...

Four of us dined on a Monday evening in this busy and obviously popular restaurants. Do not expect fine dining and silver service but you should expect a very wholesome tasty and excelently cooked fish meal. I thought that this BYO restaurant offered friendly service with good value excellent food.
