Being a local, I have visited this restaurant sporadically over the years. The owner has changed a handful of times since & the food differs depending. In the past I have been there & really enjoyed my food! However upon recent visits, I have found my food comes cold, or really isn't THAT flavoursome. Coffee has always been great though.... More

The cafe was busy and the waitress was literally rushed of her feet I wished I got her name as she was lovely, polite and smiled continuously. She wore black shorts with a black t shirt.... More

A short drive away from the rat race of a large City brought us to Maraetai on the south west coast of Auckland's Hauraki Gulf- about 40 minutes from Auckland's CBD. It was an overcast yet warm autumn week day morning with cloud just high enough not to totally obscure both Waiheke and Ponui Island's in the distance. Kayakas paddled... More

We often visit the restaurant, however this time around we found the service very poor. Place was pretty busy and looked liked they only had 3 waitresses running the place. The table we found still had previous customer dishes, so I went to counter to ask for the table to be cleaned and waited for a few minutes. I clearly... More

We arrived at 11.15am, just missing the breakfast menu but went to the lunch options. Lovely waitresses obviously still under the pump from the breakfast rush were friendly and got our table and orders sorted pronto. Food was very appealing served on wood platters and just was tasty. Kids had a ball. Coffee was delicious.

We came here based on a friends recommendation. The staff were very friendly and attentive, the location is stunning - we sat outside directly opposite the beach. We had coffee which was very good and lamb koftas with bulgur wheat - delicious. A great little place, well worth a visit.

My wife and I recently enjoyed an impromptu late lunch at this establishment. The waitresses were welcoming and we sat at a window table outlooking onto the wonderful Hauraki Gulf. It was a quiet midweek afternoon in Maraetai Village, and the restaurant was quiet .. although we visited after lunch-time. Anyway, the menu was varied and inviting, and when our... More

Got here just on closing time on a Sunday and they sneaked in one last coffee for my wife and I. Really good coffee. Also had a great piece of carrot cake. In the end the location could not be any better on a nice sunny afternoon looking over the water out toward Waiheke.
