Best place in town for coffee, breakfast, brunch, late lunch, afternoon tea. Over many visits, it's been consistently good. Varied menu and great range of muffins, pastries, cookies and pies. Nice, friendly atmosphere, indoors or outdoors.

In Honiara for 2 months, I found the Breakwater for brunch one weekend--it quickly became my go to place every morning. Best coffee in Honiara; friendly, cheerful and attentive staff, and great food.

We went with a friend for lunch. The food was good, the service friendly and the ambience excellent. A welcome air-conditioned oasis after the crowded streets of Honiara. Highly recommended for breakfast and lunch.

Fantastic coffee and great cafe food as good as anywhere back in Australia. If you are in the area a great place to just chill out. Friendly helpful staff and fair pricing. Would definitely go back.

Breakwater Cafe is a real gem, hidden away on the main road of Honiara. Coffee, smoothies and cooked breakfasts are all lovely. They also have a range of delicious cakes and pastries at the counter. Highly recommend the house made muesli for breakfast.

Struggling in the heat? This place was a godsend. The air con is phenomenal and makes for a very comfortable meal which can be hard to find in Honiara. Immaculate set-up, feels like a trendy cafe. They do good loaves of bread on weekends and...More
