Really nice view to the Oneroa Beach. We ordered prawn omelettes and avocado on five grains. The food is presented lovely and just to our tastes. The service is excellent. Probably we arrive at 12ish and there's lots of people waiting, the food is served a bit slowly. Surely will come around again.

Beautiful location if you get to sit out on the deck or near the view! Friendly fast service especially since they were so busy we had minimal waiting time. We both got the eggs benedict which was really nice, with the added touch of zoodles on top and the butter on the muffins were SO yum somehow they really stood out from the meal hahah. The portion size was decent and filling as well. All in all we left happy and full. The only reason I wouldn't give it a 5 is because I am allergic to nuts and personally would have enjoyed more options without them.

Great menu, friendly and attentive service and wonderful location and view! Particularly good coffee, my friends and I would say some of the best coffees we've ever had.

Came here for lunch the other day with two friends. It's such a nice setting on the water with beautiful views. I ordered the cashew nut granola with rhubarb and almond milk. It was nice but nothing amazing. My partner got the market fish which was tuna and he loved it! It came with a fresh veitnamese salad and pickled fish sauce. My friend got the prawns on cous cous which looks delicious! I had food envy for sure! Overall food was nice, good coffee and lovely setting.

Location, location, location. This place is all about the view. Situated over oneroa beach we enjoyed breakfast with views out to sea. The service was lovely, we were served promptly on a busy day and our food landed within 15 minutes. The open kitchen gave us an opportunity to watch the team at work and also allowed us to see how often the microwaves were used. My venison was served piping hot - far too hot to eat. After waiting for it to cool a little I found it too rich and I can't understand why it was served with edible flowers - save those for sweet dishes. We weren't table checked or I would have sent it back but by the time my husband had finished we decided to leave. We would return to see if they have improved.

Had a lovely lunch here on Auckland Anniversary day. Service was a bit slow which was to be expected with how busy it was. Beautiful view of Oneroa. I had the broad bean fritters with haloumi which was delicious. My partner had the fish of the day which was a perfectly cooked tuna steak with Vietnamese salad. Definitely one of the better places to eat in Waiheke - we will happily go back

It's a peaceful place to have meals. I went there in a cloudy day so I chose to sit inside but face to the sea. The scenery there is amazing and can hear the sound of the waves. cutleries are clean the environment is nice. Staff are friendly.

Beautiful location beautiful cafe and beautiful food! Situated right at the centre of Oneroa facing the water. Outdoor area had amazing views. We ordered the lamb cutlet and eggs bene with smoked salmon for lunch. Presentations for both dishes were very nice! Very interesting flavour and we really loved the creative idea of balancing the flavours with all the ingredients on the plate. Good serving size too. I was attracted by the snapper and coconut rice dish on the menu. We wasn't told this dish is not available when we sat down. It caused a bit of disappointment when l placed my order. However the waiting staff was apologetic and polite. My disappointment was soon waived by the beautiful food Taft served in front of me. Would love to return to this beautiful cafe on our next visit.

Prompt service, great tasting food, with healthy portions and a fantastic view. It was a great way to start the day! Both smoothies were mixed perfectly however the coffee was a touch burnt, but still tasted ok. Definitely coming back to try other items on the menu

Great food, fantastic view.  Ate here with a fried, the food is so pretty to look at and even better to eat :) Service from the staff is quick and friendly. Can't wait to go back

Fabulous setting - sat on the balcony on a sunny Saturday looking out over beautiful Oneroa beach. 1 dish of Poached eggs, colcannon, ham, avocado & Parmesan plus 1 dish of pancetta, eggs & pide were demolished - very good. Coffee & serve also good. One of the better options on Waiheke where it has become expensive to dine, also where a few well known cafes/restaurants have become complacent, serving very average meals at very high prices.

The views are incredible, the staff are very friendly and welcoming and the menu is amazing! The prawn omelette would have to be the best omelette I've had in a very long time. Cooked to perfection, light and fluffy and full of flavour! The pancakes were good but weren't bursting with flavour and the bacon was over-cooked. The cauliflower fritters were perfectly seasoned but a bit crumbly and the haloumi was too rubbery. All the meals were beautifully presented but I certainly didn't finish my meal and long for another bite.. with the exception of the prawn omelette. Still a beautiful place for brunch that I would recommend to anyone in the area!
