Popped in for breakfast and while standing outside looking at the menu one of the staff came straight up and offered assistance. Great first impression and good service. The location is directly across from the beach so well placed for a good experience. The breakfast and coffee were great and the overall experience means this is now my cafe of... More

Friendly service. The muffins were fresh and tasty. The best (of the 5 we tried over various days) was the raspberry and white chocolate - the best I have ever eaten! The smoothies and milkshakes were nice but over priced for the amount actually served. Not a coffee drinker, but Hubbie thought the coffee was ok, but nothing to write... More

I heard this place was great so maybe I went in with too high expectations! The menu is huge but just standard cafe options. The salmon salad was good but nothing to rave about. This place would be good for large families as there is lots of seating and so many menu options. For me, it's just a standard cafe.

It may simply be that the overall quality of similar establishments in the vicinity has improved markedly, so Deckchair no longer stands out as special. Wouldn't race back, but equally would drop...

I travel to New Zealand regularly to see family and love The Bay of Plenty Area where they live. We always climb the Mount and frequently have breakfast or lunch on the sea front. Having tried all of the Cafes I can say that Deckchair Cafe is my favourite. Depending on the time of day the atmosphere is either buzzy... More
