I have to admit I go here regularly for coffee. The position is the best on the Central Coast without a doubt. The problem The Haven Cafe has is under staffing. All the girls are lovely and polilte. They do get frazzled when large groups come in, and having the larger tables encourages them. They also tend to be very... More

We went for a quick bite for the kids on a lovely hot day - the first bank holiday we had off in a while. Ordered fish, chips and ice lollies. When it came to pay there was an 10% excess charge for a bank holiday. ON EVERyTHING - including the ice lollies. On top of that the attitude behind... More

Was looking forward to a tasty breakfast. As we queued to order and pay at the counter I noticed this was the only eatery I had ever been to where dogs were allowed (on the outside verandah at least, I counted four). The place wasn't packed but the three young girls behind the counter were frantically busy. Ordered three meals... More

What a view from this quaint café. Lovely balcony tables overlook Terrigal Beaches. We stopped once for delicious cappuccinos and cake on our way back from an adjacent beach hike and the next morning for a lovely breakfast. Fresh ingredients prepared to let their flavours shine. A relaxed vibe, covered for sun protection and heat for those chilly days. Inside... More

This place is beautiful. It's a quaint little cafe with some quirky little furnishings & an amazing view over the water but that's where it ends. The place was busy but with 5 staff running around I couldn't see why the tables were all so dirty. After lining up to place our order & having to pay in advance we... More

Enjoyed a relaxing coffee in great mugs on the lovely deck. Loved the fruit loaf with cheese and honey. Great views of terrigal beach and haven. Lovely!

I had organised a get-together for friends and was so disappointed. It will be an experience I will never repeat. For starters, the prices they charge should warrant table service but one must order and pay for food at the counter. We waited ages for food to arrive and it was the worst meal we have all had in a... More

My partner and I spent $27.00 at this small cafe on the water at Terrigal. We just wanted something easy and tasty... I ordered 10 Fish Cocktails and a Large Chips... we got our food and found a beautiful spot to sit right next to the Boat Ramp! We forgot to add salt on our food from the complimentary condiments...

Please close down so someone professional can take over. We are consitently disappointed by everything (except the view) in this place. We only go back in the vague hope that its changed management. Its just insulting to the industry and innocent customers paying money for crap everything. Give us locals a break and our boathouse back.
