Crust is like a slightly more toasted white bread (vs crisp high heat crust or thicker pan pizza crust) and there is lots of cheese. It's fine, it's still pizza. Nice but expensive side salads and great dessert section.

Great coffee, great staff & wicked pies (especially the mince varieties) !! Note the large coffees are effectively buckets so go for regular if you don't want too much volume :-)

Generous portions & a good amount of topping on the pizzas. The food is fine, nothing special. The service could have been more attentive.

I cn not believe I have to wait another 12 months (until next easter) to buy The Best Ever Easter buns. The Bonzai easter buns are the best I have ever tasted. Thank goodness I stock piled and have a few packs in the freezer...More

Established in 1982 the Bonzai has been under new management since June 2015. Now known as the Bonzai Cafe, it still provides all the old favourites, great pizza's and some of the best coffee to be found on the Coast. We've been continuing to improve the range of food available and extended our evening dining menu. We pride ourselves on excellent house made meals and good old West Coast service. All our produce is freshly baked and prepared on site. We make all our own cakes, pies, breads and savouries.
