Great coffee and baked goods in the morning, if you are staying at the Heritage. But bring cash since they don't accept credit cards, and they don't have wifi.

Decent place with a neat environment with friendly staff. Air con is too strong most of the time which causes too much temperature change when you come in a hot day. Coffee and shakes tastes change sometimes depending on the barmen, especially on weekends.

Staff don’t have knowledge on food and what the food taste like. They always say yes and ok. But they have no idea what it is.

Went to the Breakwater twice for breakfast and didn’t fancy heavy bacon and eggs type dishes, so had their muesli with milk and yoghurt. Very tasty and filling. Kept me going until mid afternoon. Reasonable prices.

A recent experience was ordering catering for a small afternoon tea function. Delicious little pies, quiches, muffins and a fantastic array of yummy slices. A nice change from the usual Honiara catering options and very well received by my guests. Not a crumb was left!!...More
