Good food, beautifully presented at a decent price and good portions. More than that, though, we appreciated the relaxed vibe and incredible views!

Stopped off for lunch and shared a burger which was nice, the meat patty could have been bigger though. The service was good but the view is spectacular.

Was recommended this cafe for brunch and wasn’t disappointed. Lovely food and friendly staff. A nice start to our Kaikoura weekend

Had 1 night in Kaikoura recently and after searching reviews on here chose to go to the beach house cafe for brunch the next morning. Nice little cafe inside but right on the highway so pretty noisy if you sit outside. Friendly staff, our drinks...came after 5 or 10 mins and food about 15-20. Berry smoothie was ok but not super flavoursome, quite watery. Had cinnamon ontop which we have never come across and thought was quite random, hubby had to scrape it off cause he's not a fan. My iced coffee was a nice size and really yummy. Hubby had big breakfast and was happy with it, my eggs bene was average. Looked great but the pancakes was a little bland and my poached eggs were over done (pretty much hard yolks). But the bacon was super super tasty, like it was manuka smoked or similar. We would come back if we were in town again but would maybe not order a smoothie and I'd ask for soft poached eggs.More

My wife and I stopped in for breakfast, for 2 meals and 2 drinks cost $63 which I thought was quite steep. The food and drinks were nice but normal so to speak. I wouldn't be disappointed to go there again but wouldn't go out...of my way just to eat there. Nice outdoor setting. Funny sign warning about food thieves in the area, they were spot on, bloody seagulls!More

Supreme coffee, good food, nice music. Worth a stop off if you’re passing through Kaikoura. Will be back

Great coffee, nice selection of cabinet food as well as a menu for breakfast and lunch. Would recommend stopping in and fuelling up.

Absolutely the best breakfast Outstanding eggs Bennie, home made hollandaise on perfectly cooked eggs and a brilliant Hash. Coffee and muffin equally as good. Top this off with really nice people running this excellent Kiwi Cafe. We will certainly make this a regular stop on...our travels to and through Kaikoura. THANK YOU !!More

Nothing like a Fish Burger and Eggs Benedict for brunch. I am 11 years old, so I could only eat a quarter of the Burger before I was full. Banana Smoothie was awesome too! I have a 3 way tie for best restaurant. This is...100% a member of that tie!More
