Stopped off here after the truly wonderful White Island helicopter tour with Frontier Helicopters. The food was tasty served quickly and the outside seating was perfect on the sunny morning we visited. Worth the small walk to the edge of the town.

Don't miss this place for breakfast, brunch or just coffee (and something irresistible from the menu). It's an institution in Whakatane, and rightly so.
