“Great food and coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

I came to this café almost every day during my trip to Kaitaia. It was probably the only modern-looking café that I had noticed during my trip there. All others had quite outdated décor. It opens very early (before 8am) and serves delicious baked items and has great coffee. I recommend the almond croissant or the muffins. I didn't notice a breakfast menu apart from pancakes, so this would've been a bonus if they were able to do this also.
