Food is decent, although some items are overpriced for size of servings in my view. Visited several times on my recent stay in Opunake, and most of the time it was great. I loved the gorgeous outside dining area, but our visit one day wasn't improved by a team member who was smoking in the outside dining area while she... More

Great little spot to stop if you're heading round the mountain. Good range of food in the cabinet as well as on the black board. My savoury scone stack (bacon, cheese and mushroom on a scone drizzled with pesto) went down a treat, as did my wife's gluten free toast and jam. Normal pricing (compared to Wellington), about $6 for... More

What a pleasant surprise. A lovely cafe in this beach town. The tea was nice and the cake yummy. Prices average. Live music in the outdoor courtyard very pleasant.

First stop on our trip around the mountain. The cafe has an extensive menus and a good range of cabinet food. Service was good but the staff seemed to preoccupied. The cappuccino ordered came as a flat white. The interior is tastefully decorated in a retro style.

Was really busy due to Flower ecpo , round the mountain race, so we had to queue. The wait staff saw our predicament & reserved one of the free tables out the back, and we were able to order & eat together. Not many places would do that. Food is home made at the cafe, always good, and a regular... More

A very pleasant surprise to find this delightful cafe halfway around a Mount Egmont drive. The building is rustic, brightly coloured and easy to find on the main street of Opunake. Two large food cabinets full of lovely selections of meals, snack and desserts offer plenty for all tastes. Their home made pies are really yummy, and their desserts are... More

We stopped there on Saturday for lunch. The vegetarian pie was packed with veg's with a delicious whole meal base. The chicken salad sandwich was also Devine.... We finished with a yummy black Doris plum shortbread.... Well worth the stop....
