Excellent, consistent quality, last visited 7 years ago and still the same cheerful chatty service, across the road from the world famous Hundertwasser public toilets - worth a visit, even if you don't need to "spend a penny". There even a piece of Hundertwasser sculptural pavement art outside the cafe. Enjoy the coffee and experience Hundertwasser's last public commission.

We were passing through Kawakawa and stopped for breakfast, with poached eggs on toast as a preference - alas, 39 Gillies could not oblige, but they did offer a range of fairly exotic bagels. I settled for what proved to be a very nice Bacon and egg croissant and great coffee, with my wife preferring the breakfast bagel and a pot of tea.

5 friendly and efficient staff serviced this small but busy cafe

The "Iconic View" is of the famous Hunderwasser public toilets, which really are extraordinary (think "Gaudi").

Great location on the Twin Coast Cycle Trail and only 11k from Opua at the start of our day. So we decided to stop for breakfast. Great selection of gluten free options with almond milk for coffee. We liked our breakfast however my almond milk coffee was so hot it had separated the milk. Tasty little GF bacon and egg tart could have been a little hotter but we enjoyed our stop. Directly across from the Hundertwasser toilet block is a must check it out too.

We stopped here for a light lunch whilst cycling the Twin Coast Trail. Friendly service and nice food. Ideal for what we wanted.
