“Finding Gold in Waihi Beach”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

What an amazing cafe ! This place has it all, welcoming staff, a menu sure to tempt the most jaded appetite and food that is cooked to perfection with great attention to detail.
We had breakfast there the next morning a very generous bowl of fresh fruit and yoghurt
along with very good coffee and a nice hot chai latte. We will return.

“Kiwi flavour”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

If you want some good kiwi food in Waihi this is the place.
Stopped in here later in the evening before they closed and was met with a smile and seated.
Seafood was good simple and plentiful.

“Poor service and very unorganised!”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Granted it was New Year's Day and they were reasonably busy - however, after asking how long wait time was and being told 30 min. We waited 1 hour 30. When we asked how far away our food was at an hour, we were met with hostility and a sour face. When we did get our order, it was slammed on the table with no sorry or even a smile. Not to mention, no salmon in the eggs Benedict (as ordered) and bacon in the vegetarian French toast. They were understaffed, the staff they did have were rude, the food was bellow average and not worth the hour and a half wait. A simple "sorry" and a friendly attitude would have been all it took for us to look the other way.
