Thank you for the positive feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed your time in Opua. Unfortunately, the ice cream fridge was only a summer feature and is due to go back to the supplier this week, hence the limited flavours.

Cycled Kaikohe to Opua and we both had Calamari - one with salad and other with chips. Calamari Salad one of the best I've eaten. Will be back soon. Great to relax and take in the lovely view of the marina while enjoying our food.

The coffee was good. However this place is the capital of moulded plastic and formica, the cafe itself an echo chamber exacerbated by background music that was anything but background, the welcome less than warm. Given its lovely position we are shocked that this is...More
