across the road from a well kept reserve, perfectly placed for a stop on a day trip up the coast, and matched with lovely happy staff and yummy food

A fantastic sea view setting up the coromandel coast from Thames. Would recommend the stack of bubble and squeak and creamy mushrooms. Both dishes presented beautifully and tasted delicious.

We had stopped here for breakfast on a previous occasion and thoroughly enjoyed the friendly staff and the great Bacon and Eggs - sure it took a wee time to arrive but was so worth it. This time, while still early - the menu was confusing and there was no such thing as bacon and eggs - you had to... More

I've stopped by a number of times in summer weather for an ice cream or coffee as passing by coming along the coast from Coromandel. The icecreams are lovely, the staff are friendly and helpful. There is a pleasant place to sit outside while enjoying your treat.

This is a popular place to stop after the winding trip from Coromandel, so is usually busy. The staff are very pleasant, but the service is always very slow. Coffee is good and is accompanied by a chocolate fish. The counter food is good, but is not always covered, which is a bit of a worry with so many people... More

A late lunch for three, a girls treat out. Our group enjoyed a child pizza (very generous with topping), a chicken and mushroom pie( tasty) and a bowl of good soul warming mussel chowder ( would have loved a sprinkle of parsley and a wedge of lemon on the side then it would have been a 10/10). Coffee was very... More

Our family have been visiting this place since it first opened and was just an ice cream shop (many moons ago). Since returning to the Coromandel after living overseas I was very surprised at what this humble country store had become. The place has expanded greatly to offer a variety of rooms and seating options , we love the quirky,... More

My family (6 year old and 2 year old) stopped here for dinner our first night in New Zealand, but ended up walking away and eating elsewhere after being disappointed in the very limited menu, being second guessed by the staff about what our children would and wouldn't eat, and after discovering there was no flexibility in pizza topings.

Have been to this quirky beach cafe before. Great coffee and very different, tasty foods. Great setting with the beach across the road.
