“It's good food as well.”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

This is an eccentric cafe with all manor of strange things in and out of the property. My partner considered the French toast was the best she'd had and my Carrot cake was delicious. I would say don't miss it.

“Somewhere very special”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

We have a holiday home at Whitianga and one of our regular special treats is to catch the ferry, enjoy a lovely walk and delight in the food and atmosphere at Eggsentric. It's a perfect evening every time. The kumara chips and scallops are divine.

“The best ice cream!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Omg, homemade ice cream that they have is so good that we had to try another flavour. Yummy! One of the best ice creams I had in NZ! And the place is so nice, relaxed, open spaces, artistic, friendly staff. Loved it!

“You MUST go here”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The surroundings are artistic, eclectic and funky, with a lot of artwork in the gardens. The menu is extensive and the food is absolutely amazing. Try the scallops with Pernod sauce! This was the best meal I've had in years.

“Fabulous tasting platter”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Tasting platter really good my husband particularly enjoyed the haloumi, great to see shepherds pie offered for children instead of usual rubbish.Fish wonderful though given its reputation you would expect handcut chips and meals not to take 50mins to arrive.
Place interesting but maybe a little tired and in need of a spring clean.
