we had a week in Mangawhai and Harvest was our local - the coffees were good, the staff attentive and fun. Brunch was very nice - staff were very busy at times but smiled all the time.

Having had breakfast here on weekends for years an extended stay at the Heads allowed us to try the Tapas dinner menu at New Year. The selection isn't large (but neither is the restaurant) but it was delicious. We particularly enjoyed the chicken croquettes.

The place is family friendly - one of my pet hates is parents who let their kids run wild in restaurants - with a play area for tots, who provided free entertainment. We especially enjoyed the performance of the tipsy cyclist who fell off her bike into a large succulent, fortunately it wasn't a spiky one!

Being regular cafe attendees at home, we made a commitment to making our own coffee at our place at the beach. The resolve didn’t last long once we’d discovered Kris and the team at Harvest Cafe! The food is fantastic, coffee is great and the atmosphere and service is fun and light hearted. The “Mini bennie” is an absolute childs favourite, the date & orange scones are legendary (we’ve often had to phone and get some put aside if we’re not going in till later) and the 12 year old has now taken a liking to the Friands! The Tapas last summer were spectacular – a highlight was the sticky ribs! Full of locals & regulars, Harvest could be becoming Mangawhais worst kept secret!

We often have breakfast here and it is very good but the coffee is outstanding. The service is friendly and patient too with the owner staying good humoured with a couple of elderly ladies taking forever finding - or not finding - their discount cards and agonising over their massive order of two coffees on a busy Labour Day morning.

Pleasant indoors and out this place is well worth a look. We'll be back to try the evening menu too.
