Touring through the North Island we had some of the best coffee in a lot of different cafes. Coming from Melbourne, I think, says a lot for how amazing the coffee is...however Umu, without a doubt gave us the best drop we have ever had. Great service and the pastries we took away for morning tea were delicious as well!

This was a great find and thankfully the cafe we had planned to visit was closed, so we re-directed ourselves here. The house wine was superb and the food delicious and excellent value. A really nice cafe that we would return to again. It was doing a brisk trade on a Saturday afternoon in August, so imagine it is packed... More

Good hot chocolate and atmosphere. A bit disappointed in selection of food. No bacon and egg pie, No french toast, the cashier lady didn't even know what it was. What we had was yum though. A sausage roll and a croissant. Free Internet was a bonus in this part of nz.

For we Aussies who love our GOOD coffee, this is Coromandel's place to go. Great food too. There are not too many places to eat but this one is Tripadvisable ;-). The staff are friendly, the atmosphere warm and the displayed food YUM

We stopped here by chance needing lunch after a lovely drive up the Coromandel coast and had what I was expecting to be a seafood lunch of mussels..... I never realised you could do mussels so many different ways. Five different tapas style dishes all arrived at once and I had trouble eating them all but they were so good... More

The decor was great - the wine selection was OK and the meals were very good. Excellent selection at reasonable prices. We had a great Saturday night.
