This is out must stop every time we are over the bay. It's become family tradition to enjoy a slice of breakfast pizza before heading home.

This place looks fantastic! Wow a cafe and roastery with a landscaped eating area right in front of the sea - what more could any coffee lover ask for... We came here to enjoy some bites to eat and some much needed coffee after a long trip to our Bach. After reading similar reviews to this one about poor service... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way to Wainui Falls. We were both hungry and craving some coffee and small pastry when Google Maps recommended this spot. Wow! I am SO GLAD it did! I ordered the Banoffee cheesecake and it was one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted. My husband ordered a muffin and... More

Great coffee and wonderful muffins. Lemon and white chocolate this morning, scrumptious!!! My favourite though was the other week, dark chocolate and fresh orange, totally delicious. They even welcome dogs. Don't drive by without dropping in!👍😃🍰☕️

We stopped in early afternoon, the signs were out, there were a few tables of people eating. As we started to peruse the menu we were quite sharply told 'the kitchen is closed, you can't order'. Riight.... ok ... I guess we'll bugger off then. And not bother to come back on another day. I guess they have their hours,... More

Eleven of us had lunch at Totally Roasted this week. We all thought our meals were delicious with excellent and swift service. So good that we went back for coffee and cake the next day!

The cabinet food looked delicious and my coffee was very good. However, there were no welcoming smiles and the staff seemed sullen and disinterested. I hope they were just having an off day because this place could be very good.

These were delivered to us in the garden area on the waitresses way to, very loudly and pointedly, close the... More

We popped in here for a mid-morning coffee and cake, and drinks and food were really nice. The waitress was really nice and pleasant, but the owner seemed very moody and seemed unable to smile.
