“great food, great coffee, a must to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Although we only live about an hour away, we often take a weekend ride up the northern Coromandel coastline, it's so beautiful, and always stop for brunch/lunch here. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food is fresh and tasty and the coffee is awesome! Oh and the staff are friendly too!

“Great spot for lunch at the end of the pavement”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Great spot for lunch. Everything is good! Check out the specials on the blackboard....the burger really is a burger, over 200 Grams, and the flat whites are great as well! One of our group had fish and chips, all gone!

“Great Colville Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I take tours to the magnificent northern Coromandel Peninsula, and a stop at the Green Snapper Cafe is a 'must' on each tour. Tourists from all over the world, and New Zealand, love it. It has a real Colville feeling, yummy food, and the best coffee on the Coromandel - some of my tourists say the best in the world! Just keep on doing what you are doing, you have a real Coromandel gem.

“An oasis of calm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

This cafe has beautiful macrocarpa tables and mosaic chairs, plenty of shade in summer and a fire burning in winter. Their opening hours aren't huge, so it pays to check beforehand if you are there during the off-season. Awesome home cooked healthy food, good coffee, free internet, helpful staff.

“The pavlova was great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We were staying at the Colville Farm, this cafe is about a five minute drive from there.

Great food, I had the pancakes which were very nice. Staff were helpful and there was a good selection. Price was fair.
