The Eggs Benedict was ace. Ate there three days in a row! Weather was fine and the sidewalk dining in the morning sun was a bonus. Staff were friendly and service was excellent.

We have tried Oliver's a couple of times and found the snack food and coffee to be quite good but it seems to be a bit more expensive than other cafes - especially the coffee. Orewa is not great for quality cafe's though and this one is better than most of the others.

We had breakfast here on Tuesday with our wee family. What a fantastic and immediate service we received. Straight away, as café staff saw us read the menu and take a seat, they came up to us immediately, welcomed us and took a drink order. They also got us a high chair without us even asking straight away for our... More

We warmed ourselves up over breakfast here following the dawn service on ANZAC Day. Breakfast was delicious - I chose the Eggs Benedict with bacon and enjoyed two coffees, complete with cute coffee art :). It was a great choice!
