We were recommended this place by a friend. Nice setting but we had takeaways from The Store (attached to cafe) and were disappointed in the quality. Chips were soggy, fish was too greasy and had some skin on and bloodstained flesh - we are not...More

Awesome eggs Benedict and really good atmosphere. Definitely worth the visit for breakfast or lunch when you are in the Takapuna area

Nicely located Cafe on Takapuna Beach. Food is nice enough for a quick meal. Ice creams are great. Beware of the birds though - they love stealing from your plate!

No better place around to get a single ($5.00)or double scoop ($7.00) ice cream and then sit on the wooden seat by the boat ramp and watch to goings on with boat launching and retrieving. Wife’s favourite is yoghurt cherry. Mine is the coconut chocolate...More

Enjoyed lunch here with an old friend, and it was almost perfect. The food was phenomenal, and the wait staff very friendly and efficient. My only gripe is the gelato smoothies - at $9 a pop you'd expect something that comes in a bigger glass...More
