The creamy mushrooms from here are so yummy and the bread 👌 I could eat this every day. Also good coffee and sweet treats. My go to spot when I'm back in Kaikohe.

Cafe Malahi was an excellent place to have breakfast before cycling the Twin Coast Cycle ride . We all had bacon and eggs , poached eggs were perfect . It opens at 7.30 so worked well for us .

What an amazing place in Kaikohe. Had several visits during a recent stay, and they were all great. Nice coffee, friendly staff, beautifully plated food with decorations, kid friendly and the best option in town.

Called here for Breakfast prior to heading off on the Twin Coast cycle trail. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I had eggs Benedict which were very good as was the coffee. Nice atmosphere inside too and probably good for lunch as well

We were really relieved to find this nice, trendy little cafe on Kaikohe main street. The staff were so effortlessly friendly and laid back but the service was efficient, and the food was great. I had a yummy frittata with tasty relish. My husband said...More

Awesome staff, clean and reasonably priced. We use Malahi not only for business lunches but for family and friends as well. Wait time for meals is minimal, great coffee and hot chocolates to die for. I would recommend that travellers stop here on their way...More

Excellent coffee. Tasty food. Service was a little slow but they were busy.There are two cafes operating with the same name. The one beyond the service station down Broadway also does dinner. A good looking menu.

I come here whenever I need a little pick-me-up meal. Their nachos are delicious, with a little Northland twist to them. The place is often crowded at lunch time, so come early or slightly after the crowd for the best experience
