My family & I had breakfast at this establishment & I can not say enough about the food / price /service. There were 5 of us and no sooner had we sat down at our table ,our food was placed in front of us.It was absolutely delicious. The lady was extremely polite & friendly & the price was great.
I would definitely call here again & I would stay at the cabins which are situated on a slight hill behind this wonderful Cafe. I recommend this Cafe to everyone.

Real food. Prepared FRESH on the premises. Some of the nicest crunchiest tasty fresh fish I've ever tasted. Outstanding! Rest of the plate not up to that standard as the chips were overcooked and dry. Salad dressing (no choice) not to my taste. No tomato sauce or sufficient tartar sauce offered. Coffee 'ok'...'could have been hotter' said one of our group...to us Lacking staff queries AFTER our 3 plates were placed in front of us. Window of opportunity for 'how are we doing?' or 'everything ok?' passed...and we departed. It's a nice clean venue 2.87kms south of Wairoa on Main Highway 2. Convenient place to stop ample parking. Add some good old fashioned customer service to the mix...... could be outstanding...

Always stop here en route from Napier to Gisborne. It's just less than 2 hrs from Napier and has a wonderful elevated setting with views over the river. The food and coffee on offer is varied and quickly served, ideal for travellers. Located about 3 km Napier side of Wairoa.

Love Cafe 287, but then there's lots of lovely little surprises about Wairoa too. Cafe 287 provides an excellent range of REAL food - you know, made from fresh, REAL ingredients, and you can sit in the sun outdoors overlooking the river, or indoors when the weather's not so kind. Very clean and tidy, the staff are great - nothing could be better. I'll be back. Oh, and there's clean basic accommodation units at the back of the property too, very peaceful and my chosen accommodation whenever I'm in Wairoa.
