I CHOSE THIS PLACE BECAUSE even though I was on holiday escaping Auckland for a few weeks, I still fancied enjoying a good coffee while reading the daily paper and catching up with a few friends who were passing through the Coromandel.
I WALKED IN AND IMMEDIATELY THOUGHT this is a laid back atmosphere and is exactly what I am after.
THE SERVICE WAS hassle free and adequate.
THE COFFEE WAS supplied by Allpress and was delicious as always. They also serve delicious homemade food.
IF YOU DROP IN FOR A VISIT make sure you're not in a rush and it's a sunny day so you can relax outside. The Café opens to an outdoor eating area of tables and umbrellas nestled in a Native garden.
OVERALL I THOUGHT Hot Waves Cafe is the perfect mix of Auckland café quality; with the hassle free, relaxed and sunny environment of the Coromandel.
