Great location for relaxed, casual cafe

This cafe is not fine dining, but if you just want to chill out with fantastic views and no fuss, then this is the perfect place - particularly on a hot summers day, with the surf carnival on the main beach, cricket being played on the oval - a great Aussie experience.

I have been to the haven Cafe twice in the past week and have been appalled by the customer service. I sat in the upstairs Cafe and got served some food with a hair in it. When asking the female waitress about it she muttered something under her breathe and walked off. I didn't complain as I don't like a... More

Not once have I ever visited a Café and Questioned the Owners Customer Service Skills. The Owner is rude and the many times I have been in there she has continually proved so. On one occasion I even saw a staff member walk out crying after being yelled at by the owner, I have also noticed a staff member walking... More

I took my family for lunch and could not believe the behaviour of the owner. After waiting so long for my order, to listen to her berate her staff loud enough so that all of the patrons felt uncomfortable and for the poor girl be resorted to tears is unbelievable. Nobody deserves to be treated that way. The food is... More

The view is the only positive here. The wait for us and others around was well beyond acceptable. When the food came it was poorly prepared and not representative of the price. Not my most favourite visit to Terrigal

We ordered takeaway at 1:05 - two chicken burgers, one fish burger, medium chips and cans of soft drinks. At 1:25 they called out our number and we got excited. Alas, the young girl just told us that they had no more chicken and could we choose something else for $8.50 - the price of a chickenburger. I chose another... More
