Great staff, Good food, lovely place for your dog to go with you. Fabulous spot by the beach. The owners just need to keep it from looking a little bit grubby, and the toilets need attention.
Coffee great.

Very popular with locals, standard cafe food of good quality ( the 'Vegeholic' breakfast is great, as is the coffee). Dog and baby friendly but still fashionably shabby chic. Over the road from the beach, across a busy street. Staff friendly enough but service a bit haphazard. Great for casual catch ups.

Our hotel recommended this place for breakfast. Went back three times. Various combinations of eggs, potatoes, and veggies, all perfectly cooked to order, all available gluten-free. It's furnished with sixties photographs, posters, record covers. The head guy wears panama hats and Hawaiian shirts. Patronized by a ton of locals.
Go.

We had a family dinner here the week before Christmas, no trouble getting a table. We had the cheese fondue, calamari and cheese wontons to start (the fondue was yummy). Mains were a seafood linguini (huge and lovely), fish of the day (warehou, very nicely done) and chicken tenderloins for the kids. Dessert wasn't really needed after all that, but we couldn't resist the chocolate fondue. Drinks were good and so was the service. We'll definitely be returning, especially enjoyed the walk along Oriental Bay after dinner.

This is a well located cafe overlooking Oriental Bay, 10 minute walk from Te Papa along the foreshore. Serves fresh, vibrant food, licensed and has outdoor seating.

Dog friendly with bean bags and water dishes!

Good for anytime: breakfast, brunch, coffee, lunch or an afternoon chillaxing overlooking the promenade and people watching.
