The smell of fresh roasted coffee makes a wonderful backdrop to this place. Friendly service and great coffee, this is a favorite in Havelock North.

A great stop en route from Waimarama beach to the airport. Great coffee,sweet and savoury offerings in this busy " locals "cafe. Plenty of parking means its easy to stop and enjoy this ambient cafe. Buy freshly ground coffee and any equipment you may need to enhance the flavour and quality of coffee made at home.

Each time we visit Havelock North on our bikes we always choose Hawthorne's as we have worked up an appetite for their tasty treats. The staff are friendly and attentive and it is lovely sitting outside. The savoury brioche and pain au raisin (sort of) were delicious as were our coffees. It was a bonus to fill up our water...

I love this cafe. They roast the beans, the coffee is always excellent and the staff are the best! So lovely, friendly and smiley! Cool cafe fit out and a great space to be in. Plus they offer Organic Ash's amazing food now too!

The best coffee we have tried in the area so far. Strong, great crema, perfectly made. Don't come for a meal - this is a coffee bar and the options for food are limited to cakes and slices. All roasting on site and great coffee knowledge. A must visit.

The headline says it all. Dropped in for a quick break - usual flat white etc.. Friendly and attentive staff and great coffee, what more can you say.
