Best stop at Sandspit ever. Had the best coffee in weeks, definitely returning. Also turns out the owner is a comedian. Highly recommended :)

We returned to Cafe Sandspit for our wedding anniversary dinner and, once again, Justin and Robyn did not disappoint. A beautiful meal, nice wine and a wonderful view. Try it yourself.

We had breakfast here, overlooking the bay. It was delicious, and the chef was so friendly! We asked to view a dinner menu because we plan to return! The food is artistically plated, and the price is right!

While you wait for a water taxi or ferry, there's no better place for a good coffee and a light bite to eat while you look out to sea and look down into the clear clean sparkling water below. Friendly and helpful staff.

This charming cafe is well worth a visit if you are in the area. Overlooking the water at Sandspit, gateway to Kawau Island. Great personal service, well prepared, tasty food for a reasonable price. Comfortable seating and music that adds to the ambience. Coffee gets a score of 4 out of 5 from me.
