Nice to be looked after by nice people who genuinely care about other people. Just a quick stop while cruising through. Glad we did.

A busy café that on this day was full of local trade’s people sitting outside yammering away and smoking. I figured if they are happy to come here, the place had to be good. Yes, the coffee was excellent and available from $ 4.20 to $ 5.50. There’s black board specials, breakfasts from $ 14 - $ 20 and lunch... More

Despite our poor experience at another cafe in Tairua (see previous review) we were not put off at eating in this lovely little town. Thank goodness for Out of the Blue. Prompt service even though they were very busy and told us there would be a ten minute wait. Great food both out of the cabinet and off the grill.

We were staying in Tairua for a few days and went here for lunch. I had the big breakfast which was excellent and good value. Plenty of bacon, eggs cooked to perfection, good hash brown , well cooked and presented. Also, very good coffee. Only negative comment is the eftpos machine looks like it hasn't been cleaned in a year.

We just stopped in for coffee and it was great. The large cappuccinos were the largest we had some coming to NZ. Service was freindly and we couldn't fault the whole experience.

Don't miss this small cafe which is tucked just around the corner from the main road. Pop in here quite frequently for a take away coffee. Service is always friendly and never seem to have to wait too long. Coffee is always good as are the muffins.

Stopped by hoping for a quaint independent cafe. Almost got it. What we got was fair. Coffee was great! Muffins were fair and so was the pancakes. Biggest travesty was microwaved homemade pies!! Disappointing as the pies looked great but as a result of microwaving pastry was soft and lifeless.

Thank coadred
