We’d just spent an idyllic afternoon at The Lost Springs in Whitianga and finished a perfect day with snapper and garlic chips from Jandals which we ate on Whitianga sea front. I’m not usually a fish and chips fan,, but these are exceptional

We had a lovely breakfast here this morning. We had the corn fritters and salmon eggs Benedict. Both were yummy and very filling. Prompt service and reasonably priced. Thank you!

Great kiwi cafe just down the road from the beach. Nice strong coffee and a big selection of counter food, cakes and hot cooked food. The corn fritters with bacon were absolutely huge! Definitely recommend

Delicious breakfast. I had scrambled eggs, bacon & toasted ciabatta; hubby ate eggs benedict. Perfect. Coffee was good too. Excellent service in spite of cafe being extremely busy on a Sunday morning.

This cafe had their menu in the Admiralty Lodge Motel compendium in our room. Breakfast was what we were after and it was sensational and in my opinion great value and recommend a visit. Go for the Jandals breakfast!
