Visiting from Auckland and tried this for brunch before heading home. Well, great staff. Friendly and attentive and then we tried the food. One of the best big brekkies in awhile. Hot, tasty, and the most perfect poached eggs. Will most definitely return when we visit next. Been a small business owner and chef myself this is a well deserved 5 stars. Cheers guys!
Popped in before heading back to Auckland and man this place is awesome. Super busy Sunday morning but super friendly staff, good coffee, lovely breakfast and probably the best cheese scone I’ve ever had. This will be my Cafe whenever I’m in Whakatane �
The atmosphere was lovely but very noisy with the acoustics, I guess the age of the building.
The staff member that served us was lovely 😍 and the food was beautiful.
Hubby had the Big Breakfast only complaint from him was the bacon was to crispy (we know for next time) I had the omelet and it consisted of (cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, onions and bacon) served with ciabatta bread..
Great coffee served halfway through our meal just like we like it.
We have been 1x before hubby had in season whitebait fritter he said it was lovely..
Didn't get a photo of the meal, but did of the date scone we brought home to eat..
Delicious food, if I could give it a 10/5 I would. Friendly staff. The food is so yum and such a great variety. There is a lot of room out the back and front for groups is people
Super friendly staff, the food was very unique and delicious. Loved the Moroccan chicken. They even offered us extra fries because the chef thought we didnt have enough. Would highly recommend coming to this place.
LOVEd it!!! All three dishes were delicious! Mince on toast with a poached egg "they must have my recipe from home"; seafood chowder "best outside of homemade"; chicken and mushroom fettuccine - was hardly any fettuccine!!! Smiles all around.
Price wise very worthwhile. Really good sized portions, could easily share between two.
No coffee for my crew BUT my fussy Auckland aunty likes it.
The cabinet food all looked amazing too!!! We enjoyed the pineapple and coconut slice... was yummy as!!!
Only thing was, my Uncle couldn't read the blackboard up the back without his glasses, a light on it be good.
Has a Vegan menu which is great (but no prices on it so you might get a surprise when paying). I had mushrooms on ciabatta and my wife had roasted veg salad. We shared a raw snickers slice. Food tasted great!
Friendly service and delicious food. Would definitely eat here again.
In all the years ive been rating cafes across the US, UK, Germany and oz/nz, I’ve dished out maybe 6 5-stars. ‘Nuff said. Service, vibe, quality of coffee, food flavour - as WELL as - looks and presentation. It’s all spot on!!! The cooked brekkiea look really good too! (NB - a “large latte” is served in an 8oz cup, but they will do a 12~13 oz if you ask specifically for it. )
Great place to recharge after one of many walks around Whakatane. I had the cornfritter stack, delicious. Nice service.
Always love my Cafe 4 U visits. The staff are lovely and the food is amazing. Always leave satisfied and look forward going back 🤗
What a fantastic little gem in the heart of Whakatane!
We came here for morning tea, there were so many options it was hard to choose.
Half pint ordered a custard berry slice and hot chocolate both were great and were given 5/5.
Hubby ordered two things since he couldn’t decide and due to their size couldn’t finish them. He got a date scone and a slice with white chocolate cranberries. For me it was as always a sausage roll. Which was huge and devine. It was so good ended up sharing with half pint.
The coffees were also great we finished them easily.
