Good service, pleasant surrounds - it adjoins White Island booking office which also has some souvenirs. Plenty of reading material. One of the best value for money cafes around town.

The staff is very helpful: when we bought a muffin and asked the waitress to cut it in half so we could share it later on, she not only did that but added a plate, a plastic knife and a small dollop of butter so we could enjoy the full flavour when we were ready to eat it. Thanks again!

Stopped off here after the truly wonderful White Island helicopter tour with Frontier Helicopters. The food was tasty served quickly and the outside seating was perfect on the sunny morning we visited. Worth the small walk to the edge of the town.

Had a nice breakfast here. A little pricey and there is better value in other places but the food was well presented and alright.

Don't miss this place for breakfast, brunch or just coffee (and something irresistible from the menu). It's an institution in Whakatane, and rightly so.

We ordered a take away coffee which took a while to get to us as they were very busy. But it was good coffee.

We have been to PeeJays many times over several years and with many cooks preparing food. We always sit on the upper deck with a view over the water. Coffee is always very good if not very hot.

Did not eat in there as we had a micro cabin on site and was self catering. However the coffee was great.
