We happened upon this amazing little café during a natural stopping point on our journey from Gisborne to Napier. It’s understated bohemian in style, and staff were all very friendly - service was good even though it was quite busy. There were a nice mix of people adding to the overall avant-garde ambiance.

There is a lot of choice for veggies and GF, and food is made freshly every day. I had an open-top veg pie whose pastry was perfectly short, and a ginseng tea. I thoroughly enjoyed them both!

I would love to return one day to experience one of the advertised bands or artists!

overlooking the beautiful Wairoa River is the East End Café and Bar. The menu is varied and a meal to satisfy is delivered with a smile from the waitress. There are tables on the footpath with a view that can not be found in many towns, the atmosphere is soothing and it is attached to the Gaiety Theatre. The coffee is great and all meals are home made thus ensuring good quality. It is definitely worth a visit if you are travelling through Wairoa.

We were served quickly with a delicious salad and great coffee.
I can't believe it took us so long to find this brilliant cafe!
