We had 2 breakfasts and a lunch here and were not disappointed with a single thing. Everything was presented well, was fresh and very tasty.

We arrived at 10.10am and had to be gone by 10.45 for an appointment. Both had eggs benedict (one gluten free) and coffee which were both delicious. We were out the door and on our way by 10.40. Well done on such efficient service.

A regular at PeeJays Coffee House most weekends, as I love good coffee and food to match.

Recently, we had the opportunity to visit Peejay's Coffee House for Lunch. We found the Staff to be Friendly and Helpful, and the food to be excellent, with plenty of it for the reasonable price charged. This Coffee House has a Great Location, close to the Local Fishing Wharf and the Whakatane Heads, good for Tourists.
