I stayed in Opua for a week and enjoyed several breakfasts and flat white coffees at the cafe. My favorite was eggs on toast plus sides of avocado, tomato, and or spinach! Also had the big breakfast once! Tasty!

Eggs Benedict for a late breakfast were perfect and the coffee was a great Pick-me-up after a difficult morning. The lady at the counter was so very pleasant, that when we returned later in the week I was disappointed that she wasn't there!

Recently under new ownership, the ordering process and wait time for food was long. Food was good though. I’m sure they’ll work it out and improve soon!

Convenient, clean, and cheerful ambience. Ordinary menu, but food at reasonable prices. We only had afternoon tea, and the drinks and fruit cake were nice. Would definitely try their food.

Thank you for the positive feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed your time in Opua. Unfortunately, the ice cream fridge was only a summer feature and is due to go back to the supplier this week, hence the limited flavours.

Cycled Kaikohe to Opua and we both had Calamari - one with salad and other with chips. Calamari Salad one of the best I've eaten. Will be back soon. Great to relax and take in the lovely view of the marina while enjoying our food.
