My husband and I had a light early dinner at Eggcentric and the meal was absolutely gorgeous. The service was fast, the staff were very friendly with a true 'kiwi' attitude - laid-back and genuine. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful, makes you really appreciate the amount of effort put into it. There is some interesting art for sale, too... More

After a hot walk it was lovely to stop in on the way back to the ferry and enjoy a delicious home made ice cream. The rhubarb and white chocolate was a winner. Delicious.

We are stoked that Eggcentric have opened for the season. This is a great place to grab some hearty Kai (food), always presented beautifully and a really relaxed comfortable atmosphere set across the road from one of the most beautiful and safe beaches.

We visited here with 6 of us on the recommendation of one of the diners for their seafood. All meals came in a timely fashion even though we were told due to a big group being late, we would have a small delay. The food was presented beautifully and tasted like a lot of love and thought had gone into... More

We didn't really go there for a meal, but just stopped by for an ice-cream treat. Boy, would i say that their ice-creams are scrumptious! They have eccentric decorations all over the cafe, living up to their name. The back of this cafe has a nice garden with tables and chairs for you to enjoy your meals. There are toys... More

We had a lovely lunch here after it was recommended to us by our kayaking guide. The garden out the back is a gorgeous place to eat your lunch. Iced coffees were really nice. I had scallops and my other half had seafood chowder and both were utterly delicious. Good cakes/muffins for afterwards. A great place for lunch if you're... More

Awesome unique place to have breakfast, brunch or lunch! Recently visiting the region for a long weekend, it was recommended we stop in here. From the unique art work, sculptures, and pictures are enough to get you excited. The weather was awesome during my visit and the menu options are just gaga! I went for the crepes, and its something... More

Eye should change the name. The food was some of the best w had in a New Zealand. very creative and flavourful.... More

This was our third re-visit to this restaurant and it didn't let us down. Live music was refreshing and we were made to feel like family - this is a must visit

I've eaten many times and enjoyed every meal and the coffee is nice too. It's great for the kids and the garden is lovely, there's even a little grocery that sells fresh local fruit & veg and has a great deli selection too. But besides that you've gotta try the corn cakes! I've had Bills corn (fritters) in Sydney &... More
