By far this is the best cafe in Orewa by a country mile – there are others, but if you’re after value for money, good coffee and exceptional service, you can’t go past Oliver’s.
I got introduced to Oliver’s by the lovely couple, Andy and Paula Dunn who run 363 Orewa, a Luxury Studio Accommodation Air B n B type place and so I now make a point of calling in to Oliver’s when passing through the town or staying at 363. NB, If you want five star accommodation you’ve got to try (like I’ve done about 10 times now) 363 Orewa for a great experience, right on the beach with wonderful hosts. As an added bonus, it only takes about three minutes to walk to Olivers.
I’ve almost had every thing on the menu at Oliver’s now. My favourite would have to be the Zucchini Corn Fritters or the Smashed Avocado.
Overall score: 11/10 – fantastic food, great coffee with friendly attentive staff, and an 11/10 for 363 Orewa.
