Stopped in for a coffee and a browse only. Lovely indoor & outdoor seating options to enjoy a sunny day. My flat white was ok, my wife's latte was excellent. We'll go back for lunch or dinner, the menu looks great. Art, figures and all sorts for sale and interest. Definitely worth a stop and browse.

After a short walk we decided to stop for a coffee and ice creams for the kids. The coffee was very good as were the ice creams. An interesting, quirky place with lots of outdoor seating. Prices were a little on the high side but not out of step with the rest of the area. We will be back to... More

Looking forward to returning to what I knew as an awesome cafe, but this time round was disappointed. had to keep approaching service counter to get served. Used the toilets even though fun and quirky, I didn't like the cobwebs everywhere and could have been cleaner. Got the cheesecake which I heard was wonderful but was okay. A group of... More

7 of us went for dinner and enjoyed it immensely especially the scallop entree it was primo. We caught the ferry over from Whitianga and walked there but it was a bit far for my old dad. Think if we go again we'd arrange some transport or drive around with the car. Was very busy and we were a bit... More

Sitting in the garden with good coffee and a scrumptuous breakfast - great way to start the day. The staff are friendly and there is a lovely family atmosphere.

We had heard about this place and called on for afternoon ice creams etc and were not disappointed. Interesting decor. Atmospheric, indoors and out. Love the menu, and hope to return one evening soon. So glad we went.

As the name suggests, this cafe is full of character, but quite well run. Beautiful eating areas outside, even a sandbox and trampoline for little ones! Good selection of food and all well made. Close to front beach, Shakespeare's cliff, and within easy walking distance of ferry from Whitianga. A favorite spot!

Came for NYE. Beautiful food - unexpectedly so. They made us feel welcome and a short walk away was a gorgeous beach with a great view. Even fussy teens loved it.
