No complaints from us and if you cannot get the basics right you will not last long.
Our coffee's were great and yes it was only a coffee and cake but our second visit here and we left happy and that's what its all about and will call in again next time.

When a local recommended the Hot Pipi Cafe and Bakery as having great food then we just had to go and try for ourselves. He was so right!

We got a warm and friendly welcome from the staff and our selections and coffee arrived promptly - great staff!

The Hot Pipi has three eating areas; inside the cafe, in the lean-to with clear roof (rather funky and a great place for a large group & families), and outside with sun shade and tables. On such a lovely day we decided to eat outdoors.

The Hot Pipi is a beach styled cafe focusing on delivering good food by way of all day breakfasts (very much a brunch menu); lite meals and gourmet burgers. You can expect to pay between $19 and $20 for most of the menu items – what more could a surfie ask for!
In addition to the menu items the Hot Pipi offers and wide selection of cabinet food in both saviour and sweet foods.

We would recommend that if you are visiting Waihi beach and you want an enjoyable, relaxed cafe with all day food then the Hot Pipi Cafe and Bakery certainly fills the bill.

We only bothered with the one visit. There were not enough positives to encourage a return visit. The coffee was mediocre, It really annoys me asking for an espresso and receiving a cup the size of a bucket with overly diluted black liquid masquerading as coffee. I also think it is a bit rich to charge a dollar for a small side pottle of Aioli. I feel outside of the holiday crowd this place is going to struggle. Or maybe the locals don't mind poor service.

don’t go to this cafe! they were so rude about accepting our entertainment voucher. Such bad customer service. when our meal arrived (eggs bene) we had bacon instead of salmon that was ordered, we told the waitress but were told that that’s what we had ordered. we then went up to the counter and were told by the chef that they had no salmon. we got a refund and left. flat white cafe is way better, great service there!
