We have been here a couple of times recently because they have finally got someone making decent coffee. Wouldn't go to breakfast here again though as it costs around $35 for a big breakfast as they just do eggs and everything else is around $5 each as an extra. It is also confusing what to do! If you go to the counter they tell you to take a seat and they will come to you. The second to last time we went we just took a seat. After the guy going in and out past us several times we went inside to ask if we needed to go to the counter first as we were always told to just take a seat on previous occasions. The guy said they needed to know we were there first ! Maybe he needs glasses as he walked past us at least three times ! It takes a bit to get my husband here anyway as they choose to use low fat milk for everything instead of trim or blue. This is just laziness. We have owned two very busy cafes and it is not difficult or wasteful to offer both types of milk. We went there yesterday after walking our small dog on the beach, went to sit in the outside courtyard area and were told we couldn't sit there with a dog ( I didn't see a sign ). As there were no other outside seats at the front we had to get back into the car and drive the 20 minutes back home. Think they are making a big mistake as a lot of people go there with there dogs. We won't be wasting our time and petrol going there again

I cycled with a group of friends from Papamoa with the promise of a good coffee as a reward for our efforts. The coffee Was very good and the slice we shared was tasty too. Only problem was there was only 1 bike stand and about 8 bikes and 4 dogs tied up. Not that I cared as the people and dog watching in the mid winter sun was vey pleasant.

We had a great breakfast at Tay St Café during a week in the Mount. The Eggs Benedict was well presented and delicious! Friendly staff too.
