this cafe was very busy - Mangawhai is a busy place in summer. the food cabinet had a great range of tasty treats and the meals we saw go past looked very nice. we had a really nice coffee and moccachino there - the Bennetts Moccachino that you get a choc stick stirrer with.

Wow - I did not expect to find a cafe like this in Mungawhai! Stopped in here for a coffee and couldn't go past the delectable little pastry cabinet in the front. The chocolate shop is to die for as well and certainly a sweet tooth's best friend!
Sweet little place in a surprising location!

We had lunch at this cafe today on New Years Eve and loved the food, music, service, decor - everything was perfection. The staff are amazing, very efficient, polite and well presented, the service was quick and the food so tasty. We wish you all the best for 2014, we will be back!

Beautiful location, amazing cafe and lovely chocolates - but the serving staff at the cafe really let down the whole experience. They mucked up 3 of our orders and didn't try to rectify it at all. I had a nice meal, but my fellow diners were not overwhelmed, and the girls serving struggled to allocate meals even though we all had separate orders with order numbers! Ordered a side of bacon with my meal which was just added to one of the other meals ... When they explained the muck up they just shrugged and went "oh well" ....

We have tried most of the local restaurants and think this is the best in the Mangawhai area for breakfast or lunch.
We have been here twice recently, once for breakfast and again for lunch. It's a great relaxed dining setting with both indoor and outdoor covered areas, great for a long weekend lunch. Food was of a consistently high quality, presentation and service were also very good.
