Decided to celebrate with a lovely brunch. We drove 30 minutes to get to this cafe. It all was worth it with the promise of a lovely brunch. Cafe had no one person inside. We arrived just after 11:30am. We were greeted by a unhappy lady who quickly told us breakfast was not available as we had just arrive after... More

The cafe is part of a campground that we stayed at. The campground is untidy and dog poo left uncleared beside our car (almost stood in it). Will not use the cafe because the hosts at the campground were not helpful and facility was untidy and unclean.

Friendly staff suggested the fish of the day. The Gurnard was fresh and delicious. Never had better fish and chips. The iced coffee was one of the best we had as well. As they advertise, it is a hidden gem.

Super place to walk to and through to get your coffee on the go. Great coffee plus check out the local artist doing pencil drawings of historic homes in the Bay.

Nice garden seating area, nice staff, though a couple not so nice. They do provide plain water for drinking despite being told otherwise - it's clearly set up and available behind the counter. Our hamburgers were good.

Not often you get a good cafe attached to a holiday park so Snapper cafe was a surprise. The breakfast was simple but well prepared and presented, the coffee very good.

Had fish, chips and salad for lunch. Batter was scorched and small amount of fish. The 'salad' was a pile of sprouts with 1 cherry tomato cut in half. Very average!!!!

We jogged from Napier and happened to stumble upon this little gem of a cafe. Such friendly and helpful staff. We were greeted by such a bubbly lady who served us. The sandwiches were lovely and fresh but the desserts were the icing on the cake! I had the oatmeal based caramel squares which were honestly the best I've tasted... More

New licensed Cafe set amongst the lush landscape of a well established sea side holiday park. Open 7 days for breakfast and lunch with extended hours over summer. Cozy coastal inspired cafe with a beautifully landscaped and enclosed courtyard making this an ideal place for the whole family.Casual dining with nothing over $20. Friendly atmosphere, accessible from the coastal cycleway, popular with Tourists and locals. A great place to meet people and enjoy the Hawkes Bay sunshine.
