We had lunch on a Saturday, great friendly staff and food was excellent. The Olivers chicken salad and BLAT was yummy. Average cafe prices. Great location opposite the beach.

A pleasant cafe opposite the beach, Olivers offers both indoor and outdoor (at the paved area out front, looking across the road to a grassed area and the beach beyond) seating options. On a lovely sunny Saturday morning, it was very popular and all of the outdoor tables were taken, but we managed to get a table for the four... More

We stopped here for an early lunch and had the steak sandwich, it was very tasty! Staff very friendly and service was good. It's also in a good location. My sister took me here when I was visiting, I would definitely go back.

All restaurants have the occasional slip up. It's how they handle the complaint that counts. In my case I ordered the Burrito.

Poached eggs on toast with bacon as a side. Very nice, just hit the spot after leaving Auckland at 9 am. Eat outside with a view of water across the road.

This is one of those places that try hard but just miss some details and consequently miss out on being excellent. While many of the other cafe's are closed at 7.30 on Saturday morning this one was open and quite busy. Worth a visit but disappointingly a van was parked right in front thus obscuring the view of the sea
