If you are only looking to eat on the foreshore, you will miss this gem. Prices good, food great, service friendly. Well worth a look.

This small café offers a friendly level of service with plain but tasty food. We had crumbed fish and chips at a very low cost; well presented and tasty. The range of wine offered was not extensive but reasonable and the surrounding what you would expect from a café. All up it was a good place for lunch and better than most of the alternatives which were few and particularly at the cost

The service was very good and service was even better, the eggs were cooked to perfection although got Multi - grain toast instead of Brown, did not ask to be changed as was in a hurry, coffee skills need a bit of tweaking though

Twice we purchased takeaway roast dinners, the first time was pork and the second lamb, together with roast potatoes, kumara, pumpkin, and peas, very good home-style cooking. For the medium size for $13.50 we got a very generous helping, and next time we asked if they would do a 'small' which was $11 and still more than I could eat. If we are back in Paihia again will definitely go there.
