We stopped here for lunch passing through (sadly without consulting TA first!) and it was really disappointing. Initially ordered the fresh dumplings but we were informed these would take a long time to make so reluctantly swapped to calamari and wedges. Both tasted as though they had been frozen and then deep friend within an inch of their life. Pretty... More

Good touch to have the next door cafe serving, coffees, etc. . Limited tap beer choice; they had karaoke - oh dear. Spotted they even charge a levy to charge your phone... More

Good location on the front at Orewa, this place as well as being a cafe also doubles up as a bar and Tab. The breakfast was good and about right cost wise. It was clean and the staff were friendly.

A little cafe attached to a bar. The short little dark waitress was very helpful and nice. The coffee was good but food a bit ordinary. We sat outside on a very wobbly table with some free biscuits that they were offering with the coffee. Love Orewa village. Very nice people.

Food was good,gaming area was good however one member of staff was out in the garden area swearing with mates(not a great look),the others were pleasant. The inside area was very cramped and the outside area was dirty and looked like some of the umbrellas needed to be replaced.
