“Busy and Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This is an interesting cafe tucked away in a side street. It's busy, with people coming and going all the time, the ambience is inviting and warm. We had a very nice lunch with tasty food, good coffee, and service. The menu included some interesting options that often had a slightly different twist to what you would normally expect in a seaside township cafe.

“Yummy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

The display cabinet had a lovely variety of very scrumptious looking food. I settled on a sausage roll and was not disappointed, i loved the homemade relish on the side. The cakes and scones looked fabulous too. The only disappointment was a very weak flat white even though it was a double shot. At least it was hot!

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

We ended our stay in Whitianga by having brunch at Cafe Coghill House. There is a nice deck in the morning sun, however it isn’t toddler safe so we sat inside. The coffee was average and we sent one back as it tasted so bad, they happily replaced it but it wasn’t much better. The pancakes were good, however the corn fritters were extremely dry and very disappointing. We wouldn’t bother eating here again and would try somewhere else next time.
