Serious lack of beach front eateries in Mt Maunganui outside of the main CBD but this one makes up for lack of quantity in their quality of service and food

A quick business lunch with a group on a rainy day. Good spicy tomato juice followed by Thai green curry and rice. Disappointed with the taste but Friendly service. Value for money. Good deserts.More

Thanks for posting feedback, though somewhat bemused as to what disappointed. Glad to hear at least the tomato juice was spiced right, the staff were friendly and you felt it was value for money. Assuming "desserts" from the cabinet hit the spot too, that is...More

Really liked this little cafe located right opposite the gorgeous beach at Tay St. Very quiet area. Cafe has excellent coffee and cake and although I haven't eaten much more there the rest of the lunch menu looked great.

I have eaten at this busy little cafe many times and never been disappointed, the variety of dishes available and the coffee is always good which explains why it always filled with locals. Great service with a smile, highly recommended Tay Street Beach Cafe.

Thanks for letting us know we did not meet your expectation. It would be odd to have a brioche that is not fresh as they come in every two days, but something could have been missed. The brisket is portioned at 120 g which is...More

Great for breakfast. Very popular. Plenty of parking. Nice atmosphere. Also good for takeaway coffee and food so you can sit on the beach and enjoy.
