“Great cafe overlooking the Bay at Paihia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

Location is fantastic and provided you can get a seat on the deck, provides an awesome view over the bay. Food was great - a modern gourmet twist on the humble hamburger which was large enough to share between the two of us. Ambiance was fantastic and the staff friendly and accommodating. Visited in july and with a bit of sun was a great ambassador for the Bay of Islands.

Certainly a must for lunch at Paihia.

“Good coffee and place to site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Good to be above the street level and see the view - good selection of food and good coffee. If you are looking for a spot in the village then go here.

A lovely elevated view over the bay. Friendly staff. We were lucky enough to soak up sun on the last two days of June. Thanks Upper Deck

We enjoyed a breakfast if muesli, fruit and yoghurt and bacon eggs. The coffee was great too and the view of the bay was sensational!
