Consistently Very Good

This is a great place to eat in Coromandel for either lunch or dinner - and they may even be open for breakfast. We have been here three times when little else has been open and on each occasion have been impressed with the food.

A must visit café if in the lovely town of Coromandel. We stopped in for a delightful hot chocolate, but the highlight was the cooked breakfast we experienced..... Garlic bread was a lovely touch. Thank you :-)

I do like a good seafood chowder & this one at Umu was delicious. Full of chunky seafood & veg. Good coffee to. The restaurant was clean and lots of locals eating there so always a good sign. If you like seafood chowder I recommend you try this one.

Umu is just a fantastic place to visit. Their Pizza's are just divine, as are the other dishes. The hard part is what to chose!! Lovely decor and just a lovely place to go and have a drink and a bite to eat.

no staff to serve, and the person making the coffee on several occasions told my group someone will be with you soon, then the person arrived instead of taking our order, rudely told us she had to change the signs from breakfast to lunch, which we had to step aside till she finished, this could have waited till after we...

We stopped in here after a trip to the creek driving railway (it was cold up there). A good selection of teas! Some lovely sweet and savoury snacks (and a good portion to boot). The staff were very friendly.

We ate here while spending a weekend in Coromandel and found the food great and the staff really friendly - it was an easy and pleasant dinner which was also well priced

Lovely little café with a good range of drinks and light meals, and blankets for cold knees. Coffee in a bowl was fantastic - great flavour and strength.

The staff went the extra mile and provided a delicious steak dinner for my little girl; she did not want anything on the 'Kids Menu'. Our meals were as equally delicious. We were impressed with the quality of service and the food.
