The Porch is a great addition to the Waihi Beach restaurant and coffee scene. The menu is typical pub/cafe style food, the food is presented nicely and the service, even on very busy days was good. For me the bonus was that they brewed a good espresso, could be something to do with the barista being ex Maranui in Wellington. The range of beers was a little limited but they promote themselves as a Mac's pub so I could'nt expect too much. There is good outdoor seating but could do with a little more shade 'cos it was very hot and sunny the week we were there. But I'll never complain about having a cold beer with fries after a morning surfing.
