The food in the cabinet looked amazing! We didn't get any of that - ordered off the menu.
The muesli was yum and the big breakfast was good too - big but not too big!
Love that they serve Vogels toast yumyum!

The minute you cross the threshold the funky floor mosaic and aromas of fine coffee and beautiful home cooking entice you. The fact that for our three nights in Wairoa we ate nowhere else speaks for itself. From morning coffees, through to pies, pasta, salads and cake Ange and her team have created a culinary and social haven that locals seem to love as much as visitors. Food is generally organic and home grown, coffee is Havana, what more can we say. Move this cafe and it's welcoming, efficient staff to our Ponsonby, Grey Lynn home area and it would blow the competition out of the water. Word of warning - make sure you get in early to buy your take away dinners - food sells quickly and the cafe closes at 4pm!

This is a great cafe. We had the Muesli and the mushroom hash stack. Everything was freshly prepared and the fresh potato hash cakes fresh mushrooms were delightful. The muesli included seasonal fresh figs. Highly recommended.

Spot on presentation only complements the incredible food served at EastEnd Cafe. We loved every bites of our meal from main to dessert and the service was perfect as well. Wairoa has a new #1 cafe!

When its open, you need to make sure there isnt a special event on. We made that mistake and had to wait nearly an hour to get a seat, we did hang at the bar and we a great time with the locals.
There was a great Blues band playing, thats what everyone was there to see.
Just about everything we had and saw coming from the kitchen was a good as anything else we'd had in NZ. The reason its not 5 stars is, nowhere we have been yet deserves it. But you wouldn't be disappointed eating here.
