After attending the Anzac service we thought we would give Nicks another try and WOW we were impressed with the service and the product. Great to see some happy faces behind the counter.

Best breakfast, such good value and lovely staff. The produce was all clearly very fresh - if you like eggs and mushrooms you can't beat these. The pancakes were fluffy and huge - you could feed a family of 4 on the double serving! Totally recommend if you're out Waiuku way.

As usual,the standard of the breakfast I ate at Nicks last weekend was awesome . I had the double bacon stack and a flat white. Coffee was lovely and the breakfast full of flavour,fresh ingredients and heaps of bacon,which is a bonus! The food arrived really quickly too. Would highly recommend a visit.

This is a very nice place. We had lunch, great menu with lots of interesing things to choose from we had the stack with black pudding and an Iraqi burger - both yummy. Coffee also good but even though we enjoyed our desserts would have like a bigger selection. Service good and with a smile and we will go back.

Nick's Cafe is a local favourite and has a strong following that is well justified. The focus is on locally-sourced ingredients and affordable meals, and it delivers these well.

Nicks cafe in Waiuku is now an institution of the area, his coffee and milk shakes are legendary and so is the 'Man-wich' sandwich that has broken the spirit of several locals who attempted to finish it.... and couldn't! Also, he won the Peoples choice Award for Cafe of the Year in a nationwide competition. Nick (the owner) is a... More

I can undetstand why the place is ranked the best in the area. I would have given it 5 stars, but I worked as a barista before and am quite fuzzy with my coffee. But definitely a great place.
