I frequent coffee houses (and many in Paia). I have been to Paia Bay Coffee several times. I keep hoping it will improve. The service is very slow and the employee at the counter has acted like he/she was doing me a favor by helping me. I appreciate that everyone who works there is waaay to cool for me, but I am a paying customer who has always been patient, nice and has tipped in spite of this poor service. Maybe the rest of the surfer crowd doesn't mind being treated poorly, but I do. Being an employee at a boutique in Paia, when the droves of visitors ask me where to get a cup of coffee, you can be sure I won't be sending them to Paia Bay Coffee. I love the location and the coffee is good, but maybe the employees could just try being nice and stop acting so inconvenienced by my patronage? There is one young man with glasses and curly hair that is the exception. He is friendly and helpful.
