Went for breakfast and I had eggs Benedict which was very good and it was plentiful, my wife had bacon with scrambled eggs on toast which was just average. However the owner was thoughtful enough to ask if we wanted our coffee with the meal.

Lots of good choices and very reasonable prices using quality bacon and eggs. Great coffee and prompt service. Poached eggs cooked to perfection, a generous helping of Hollandaise sauce and well presented. In fact a generous breakfast

After spending spending an inordinate amount of money on breakfast the first day we were in Napier on recommendation by a local shop keeper and getting poached eggs with egg shells in them, we stumbled onto Poppy's on Sunday when there wasn't much open in Napier. What a find, lovely couple who work as a well oiled team. One does... More

I and wife stopped here for breakfast, and I must say it was the most delicious scrambled eggs I have ever had in my life. Probably seems an exaggeration, but this is how I felt. The cafe owners were a nice old couple who helped us locate many places worth visiting in Napier. Was great, and we would love to... More

I visited Napier for a day and happened to go for a breakfast at the Poppies Cafe. I was greeted by a lovely couple who seemed to own the cafe. They made me amazing eggs on toast and coffee. They guided me to some of city's attractions and wall paintings. Very friendly people, food is awesome and so is the... More
