“Yummy caramel slice”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed morning tea here. Great coffee with chocolate fish :) hot and delicous cheese and spinach pin wheels. Along with a very yummy caramel slice. By the taste I am guessing they are all home made with real ingredients ! Perfect setting and friendly people.

“A Gem!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

We had accommodation a few towns away, near Tapu, and the extremely limited (a pub and a takeout 'greasy', both lacking anything edible and anything approaching friendly service!) left us hungry the first night of our stay. Then, the next morning we found this little gem, and had a breakfast, lunch, picnic snacks, and takeout pizzas over the next three days of exploring the coast. Lovely, fresh, tasty, home style food, friendly efficient service and great coffee. All this and an idyllic location overlooking the beach. Well done!

“Great little Cafe”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

Had Sunday morning breakfast here before going to work at 10am. The food was homemade,fresh and very tasty with a good selection of vegetarian options. The staff were friendly even when flat stick busy. We enjoyed the outside location and view of the sea.

“My poor sorbet”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

On a very hot summer day we stopped at Waiomu Beach Café in the Coromandel for an ice cream.It was quite busy and people were lining up for the counter. One lady was serving the customers. She was running around irritated what we not quite understood. The ice creams were almost thrown into the cones and pushed over the counter.
My ice-cream was hanging half on the side of the cone and unfortunately did not make it further than the door as it fell on the floor. Later on it seemed that they wanted to close.
Shame the restaurant is situated in a beautiful place, looking out over the see, nice outdoor wooden tables and benches with umbrellas.

“Delicious”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

I had a great breakfast at the Waiomu Beach Cafe. Delicious meal and prompt service. I like the range of tables available: the sun umbrellas over wooden tables outside, or the more cafe style in the stand-alone house, plus a smattering of funky NZ cushions for those of us who need extra padding on wooden benches.
