This place situated right by the Mendana Hotel in Honiara is a must not miss if your looking for a great meal and fresh coffee in Honiara. The food is fresh, cooked to perfection and served with a smile in a spotless and picturesque waterfront location. Go there for fresh and delicious cakes, meals, fruit smoothies and perfectly cooked meals

“Awesome food”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Not a massive selection but what little they prepare, it's very nice, from entree to dessert. Their papaya lime smoothie is absolutely heavenly. This was my regular lunch spot during my entire week there.

“Room with a view”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

The newest and most chic addition to the Honiara cafe scene. Breakwater faces the sea and has attractive decor and a cool, clean atmosphere. Homemade baguettes and pastries are the main staple but they have a good variety of blackboard special meals. Great coffee and friut drinks. Very pleasant with delightful staff.

“Clean, fresh, modern, good food”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Great business lunch place with a clean, fresh ambience and good food. Eat indoors in air con or outdoors by the sea. Too expensive for most nationals, though, so it caters to the expat crowd.

“Very refreshing to find this in Honiara!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

I walked by the Breakwater Cafe at breakfast time so decided to go in and have a quick bite. Was I ever surprised to see something this like in the middle of Honiara! It looked like any high end coffee shop one would find in the western world and I had a flat white coffee (best I've had in Honiara) and decided to splurge on the Eggs Benedict.

They were absolutely wonderful and very presentable as well! Next time I am in Honiara, this will definitely be my breakfast place, though a little pricey...but who could argue as to why?
