A short walk away from the main road - great coffee and food options. I had a ginger oat crunch biscuit and my husband had the apple slice. Both tasted delicious and home made. Lots of tasty lunch options like stuffed kumara. We sat upstairs...More

We were pleased when the staff agreed to split one breakfast for two of us. A great spot on the Strand in Whakatane. Great coffee too.

Great small cafe to share morning tea or lunch with partner or small group. The food is tasty and very well presented. Food is ordered and bought at the counter and delivered by a waitress. Service is good. Bathroom is clean.
