“GREAT COFFEE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

If you want a great coffee while in Akaroa, head to Bully Hayes for your next fix. They know how to put it together.

We went for coffee only (twice) but looking at the other guests, they were enjoying their meals and drinks too.

“Fabulous food & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

Fabulous big breakfast, awesome coffee, and eggs benedict, all wonderfully hot, cooked to perfection, tasted excellent - and all this served by a ~very~ sweet french-sounding waitress :)
Can't ask for a better way to start the day than that!!
Realistically priced, and great value for money.
Highly recommended!!!

“New Zealand's Best Breakfast?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

We stayed for two nights in Akaroa, and breakfasted each morning here. It was lovely and warm on a cold morning, and we were greeted warmly, too, by the staff. There was a great choice of breakfast dishes on the menu from which we chose the largest breakfast to share. They brought us a hot plate to share the breakfast onto without being asked. The breakfast was superb - excellent quality sausages, bacon, tomatoes, Portobello mushrooms, etc, etc., with no fatty taste. The breakfasts set us up ready for our busy sightseeing programme each day - we would definitely return!

“Relaxing afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Was a sunny day and had a nice window seat with a picture prefect view out over the Akaroa harbour. Food was good quality and service was freindly and very prompt. Almost to prompt. Had a nice afternoon meal and would return but not for a special occasion.
