The food at Success Cafe is really good. Decent portions, very tasty, and a fairly good variety of options. Service, however, weakens the experience, as they seem a little disconnected from their customers. Prices vary widely. Location is good, right in the middle of Coromandel Town.

Arrived off the boat and had an hour before our local tour to the Driving Creek Railway was due to leave so popped in here for a bite to eat. 5 adults and 3 teenagers.Were not dissappointed in food or drinks. 2 teenagers had the pancakes and by the looks of the empty plates and smiles were very much enjoyed....

My dinner was innovative being a huge piece of salmon cooked to perfection served with Lebanese couscous and fresh vegetables. Delicious sauce I think based on soy on top. A nice location in the small restaurant suited us in fact it was all very good.

We had a quick breakfast here of coffee and croissant that we thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside enjoying the sunshine. Wait staff were very friendly, the lady at the till could take a lesson from them. A nice way to start our day.

Prompt and friendly service for afternoon tea. Cakes were lovely particularly the butterscotch and fig cake and custard slice. Good coffee.

Great place to have breakfast after a very wet night and an early morning downpour that even washed out the Friday market. We managed to get a top spot on the bench watching the world outside. Staff were friendly. Coffee was well made and served quickly and our breakfast followed not long after. It was tasty and set us up... More

Washed out camping, wet, miserable and feeling pretty sorry for ourselves .... Warm, happy welcome and good, hearty breakfast served quickly, and with an amazing smile! Coffee was also great.

We had a great breakfast here and found the service friendly and the atmosphere peaceful. There are tables inside and outside and a cute bench which allows you to eat observing the world go by.

Stopped for a "quick" coffee and cake before going out to the railway, so very aware of the time it took for my coffee to arrive. Coffee and caramel shortbread ok, nothing special.
