For food in a hurry then the Mangawhai Deli must be the first port of call. Their food is great and their coffee perfect. Try a bread pie; munch on a cheese stick and treat yourself to a brownie.

Mangawhai Deli is a must stoo, they a famous foe there cheese sticks (which are bloody cheap at $2). They also specialize in Bread pies, which basically replace the pastry with bead casing. There coffee is great, this place is well worth a stop

Great cheese sticks and bread pies not to be missed. Do get in early in the busy holiday periods because they do run out of both early in the day, sometimes well before lunch.

Nice to have a few different things to have for lunch. Food is average but different from other outlets. Little over priced but to be expected I suppose. The owner needs some more personality to make the experience a little better.

I always go for a cheese stick and a flat white (both perfect) to have at the beach. Super yum. Their pies are good too! I shouldn't put it here on Tripadvisor of course, because those cheese sticks already sell out quite quickly, and now probably even faster. So have their pasta salad instead (also excellent).

We love this place. I read the review that gave one star and felt compelled to reply. The owner and his wife work five days and start their day well before the sun is thinking of rising so that the dough is ready to roll for the inimitable cheese sticks. They are a hard working couple and the wife always... More

Great little hidden spot full of locals and well informed travelers, no website, doesn't look like much but is tasty and well priced for the quality of the food
