Love the Cafe. The location is the best in Taranaki and the food and coffee are always top quality. I do have one major complaint - they are closed too many days at the beginning of the week. Check to ensure they are open if you want to go any days other than Thurs-Sun.

We had visited 3 years ago and this time had beautiful quiches with salad and, of course, Sauvignon Blanc. It was Sunday lunchtime and there were many customers but all the staff and owners provided a very friendly and unrushed service without queues. Reading the “”Bach’s” newsletter they had had significant staff illness which, if we hadn’t read this, we would not have realised there was/ had been a problem. What a team - brilliant. Thank you for a delightful Sunday.

Went with a local friend for lunch. Plenty of gluten free options, staff were pleasant, considering they were busy we didn’t wait long for our food and both meals were tasty. Pricing on the high side but was happy to pay to have good gluten free food. Would visit again.

We love to sit and have coffee & cake at the bach, its lovely outside on the deck.
Although it is extremely hot n stuffy inside, could do with more opening windows and or aircon.
Staff always look hot and uncomfortable. Maybe they could wear cooler shirts,,

The owner is an odd one, very passive aggressive in her manner and not at all hospitable. Some lessons in dealing with customers is definitely required here!!

The food was expensive and average. For a place that prides themselves on vegan and vegetarian (I am not) I expected the halloumi to be cooked properly, instead it was thin and fried and tasted like old leather boots - thankfully I also ordered the bacon which was delicious.

We sat at a table with a beach view - except we couldn’t see the beach due without craning our necks up and over the filthy window frames or ducking below them, it was that point we discovered old food wedged in the frames - YUCK!!!

Dirty, rude and expensive and strained my neck looking a view. I do not recommend, there’s a reason the place is known amongst the locals as the “B!t*h on Breakwater”.
