Still a regular after all these years

While new owners took over this great café a few months ago, you wouldn't know it. We've been coming here for years when we visited the bay, and still keep coming back now that we live in Napier. Relaxed atmosphere, great selection of vegetarian options, and a cool bohemian feel. Great coffee... read more

What a quirky cafe! If you like something a bit different and not the norm, Ujazi has it in spades. Great food, suitable for vegans, vegetarians, gluten intolerant and other food allergies. They have a great menu.

We stopped here for lunch after a long drive and a late afternoon arrival in Napier. We both had the chicken pesto sandwich and it was delish. Washed down with a well made decaf flat white, all was well. Wish we could go back again - highly recommend finding Ujazi if you are in Napier.

Good to go back to Ujazi on our recent trip to Napier. No cooked breakfast this time but absolutely the best gluten-free slice ever...ginger crunch! Nice and crumbly without the cardboard effect. Wonderful coffee, service - fav cafe in Napier.

This cafe was a real gem for us, the TEA was the best i've ever been served in a cafe (cafes just don't take tea drinkers seriously) and so generous and hot! The meals were delicious and only let down by the tinned baked beans (seriously guys its not that hard to make home made delicious baked beans). The Banoffee... More

Awesome service and great Coffee. Table upstairs provided a view of downstairs for entertainment. Eggs Benedict was superb with bacon - the hollandaise was spot on. Even did a half strength vanilla latte in a small cup for my 12 year old son. Warm and friendly.

Ujazi have picked up on the service recently with more staff and it's definitely improved. Staff are friendly and attentive, and glasses of water now appear shortly after you sit at your table. The coffee however seems to be variable, usually good, other times not. Ujazi are unique in Napier for being open the latest, around 5pm I believe, and... More

Had lunch there today. Indeed the shabby chic vibe is there, but the only thing I thought great was the mango smoothie. I had sort of a quiche type Greek slice which was flavorless. The soup was a bit more interesting, but still no punchy flavor. The Thai salad was mostly unflavored noodles. Service was ok, the the folks nice,... More
