Larger than you would imagine from the outside the café provides a good range of food and drink. Friendly staff excellent coffee and cakes as well as a good range for lunch all of which looked well presented, good quantities and nicely presented. Not a lot to do in Coromandel town but here is worth a visit.

Better try their wedges with the works and you will not be disappointed with their serving! They also offer free wifi which is quite handy to travellers and to other people while waiting for the food. I love the couch set-up inside!

Not much to say about this place. Paid cash for our coffee since they do not take credit cards of any sort. Much better coffee down the street, unfortunately, so we decided against breakfast there.

Really great coffee and really efficient service with a smile! This business has recently come under new management and it is so far so good! Clean and crisp interior, decent menu and astoundingly good coffee. A must try spot for anybody looking for decent food at a good price.

Lovely staff - looks like a family business and it's really cosy and inviting. Food was good - everyone at my table seemed happy with theirs! Only doing a 4/5 as the coffee was so-so but I'd still go again!

Stopped to have a coffee before going up to do the railway tour further up the valley. The feta and spinach roll was gorgeous, the coffee divine and my partner and friends all had similar opinions. Good service, fair prices, clean toilets and a peaceful cafe (at the time, anyway).

Wow this cafe is under new management and they have done an awesome job we only had time to call in briefly this visit but the staff were awesome and the coffee was great. Did not have time for food. And if you like your coffee in a bowl this is the cafe to go to......we will be back....

Stopped here for lunch - waitress mucked up the coffee order obviously never heard of black with extra water...... got white and a glass of cold water. Seafood chowder was nice but had to wait an age for the second serving. Overall very basic - wouldn't go again

Best fish pie ever and a good hot cup of tea. Young local staff - I'm happy to support a place that gives entry level training in hospitality. Locals eat here rather than the more upmarket cafes in town. I like the honesty and simplicity of this place.

Tourism hasn't kicked in to Coromandel yet so I feel mean in saying this cafe was average. The food was good and the staff friendly but it needs some renovation and repair. It has great potential.
