We came here after the Illume Festival so it was crazy busy and no doubt the staff had been rushed off their feet for a few hours by now. We phone ordered two large pizzas which came to $40. We choose the Romano and The Supreme. So glad I read the reviews and decided to come and get a pizza... More

We really enjoyed our lunch in Umu restaurant. Big and good mussels, perfectly cooked and very tasty. All other meals looked very good and well presented. The staff was also very kind with us. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to stop in Coromandel town.

We just popped in for dinner while staying in Coromandel Town overnight. We ordered two different pizzas and both were delicious. Nice atmosphere and friendly service.

I love their coffee! Super good milk they use, and so far I've never had a bad one. Food is quite good too, I like the pumpkin frittatas and quinoa things. Okay I don't remember what they were called, but I'm gf and their gf cabinet food is pretty good. Not sure I loved the gf desserts as much. But... More

Used to go there once a week for breakfast and never been disappointed! Very good coffee and the food is amazing! Really enjoyed chilling there in the morning or during a sunny afternoon with an iced coffee.

The pesto pizza is really good. The chowder was a little different. More like a soup/stew mix than a chowder but okay nonetheless. The Mussles however are to die for. I usually can't eat a dozen by myself but the sauce.. OMG THE SAUCE. I even dipped my pizza in that heavenly sauce. It's a MUST try. Even As a... More

Called in for brunch on our way home after a weekend away. Consulted trip adviser and this was number 1, and was it ever. One of the best meals of our break. Will travel out of our way to come back.

Thank Paul O
