A wonderful cafe up the stairs next to westpac bank on the main road through paihia. We came for breakfast both mornings we were here and the food is sensational, with very friendly quick service which is great if you have a boat to catch, and such an amazing view over the bay. Definitely recommend the French toast, omelette and... More

Had a lovely view of the Harbour while having a couple of cold beers on the deck. I was on the Cruise boat Pacific Pearl & we were transported into Paihia for the day. Just glorious, neat Sunday Market, fabulous crafts, lovely shops & great place to catch my breath with a friend at the Upper Deck for the afternoon.

Have been here before, but not for while - new owners. Nice welcome, great coffee and good breakfast. We had egg Benedict - eggs cooked perfect, bacon cooked crispy and sauce was good too, one strange addition were mushrooms hiding under the bacon, not part of the classic dish but okay. Coffee was very excellent too - will be back... More

We had breakfast here last month and were impressed by the freshness of the food. The coffee was excellent too, but all of this was completely trumped by the location. What a spot! Uninterrupted views of the Pacific with loads to see. Boats of all sizes from kayaks to cruise liners and the odd helicopter buzzing around too. Fabulous!
