My wife and I were so impressed by the breakfast we had here we decided to come back again on our way out of Rotorua before a day of hiking. The presentation and the quality are hard to beat!

Popped in for an early family breakfast with toddler and baby at 8am. Fast efficient friend service. The good came out in a timely manner with all the little things we asked to change. Delicious food. Would go back in a second. Dad wants to know how they do their tomatoes because they were yum!

Been to this cafe heaps of times for breakfast. Consistently good food and good service. Don't go here if you are looking for your Auckland soy mocca vegan latte , go here it you want good basic breakfast fare, nice staff, in a relaxed place with an awesome views.
