Great venue but they need to sort out the food - how is it possible to serve a bland eggs Benny? These guys do it. Potato cakes were pretty tasteless too. Eggs were nice. Coffee was lukewarm and all 6 empty cups were left on the table even though they brought over other items.

Moccachino was delicious as was the gf caramel slice. Will become our regular coffee stop from now on when heading north.

We stayed in Urenui for 4 nights this Christmas, so we had quite a few meals and coffees at the Mud Bay Cafe. Highlights were the well seasoned potatoe cakes (in a number of breakfast dishes), perfect hollandaise, the porkbelly (pig burger) and the hand cut chips. Coffee was consistently good, the service was friendly and efficient. Our only regret was not making it to dinner, though we did get to try the tasty avocado creme brulee dessert. Yum.

Arrived here at 1pm on a Sunday afternoon. Place was just over half full & we had a few tables to choose from. Our friends arrive 10 mins later. Waitress took order at 1:30. Ten mins later waitress returned too tell us food would be about 20 mins. Another waitress arrived at 2:30 to tell us that they needed extra time if we wanted to stick with our original order and suggested substitutes. Food eventually arrived. Pizza had a soggy base and looked like it had been made by a 10 year old. Chicken in the burger had been marinated in green pesto stuff, looked like zombie flesh and and tasted how you imagine it would. Ate it anyway because at 2:30 something in the afternoon I was pretty hungry. Ordered zero coke and got normal coke.
No apology. Paid full price. Amazed they are in business.
