I should have trusted my gut instinct and left straight away, we walked in and every staff member stopped what they were doing (including serving other customers and making coffees) and stared at us like we shouldn't be in there. We sat down and ordered some coffee while picking our meals, still getting sideways glances from the staff. Food a... More

Looking for good coffee to start the day. Found it here, along with good cafe food and friendly, helpful staff. Ambience a little stark but all round and excellent choice. Expect to be back tomorrow!

I visit Rotorua once a year and always come here for brekkie or brunch, good food and good portions with nice options if someone in your party is having low carb. Good service too!

Great for a coffee and breakfast. Sunny facing location. Friendly staff. We had brunch with our children here and enjoyed the food. It is located close to the Lake and just down the road from the Ambassador Motel where we stayed.

Fantastic coffee, yummy well presented food and congenial environment. I visited a few times while attending QE Health which is just across the road. Each time the service was friendly and quick and the food was great. Definitely a favoured place in Rotorua.

Healthy, tasty food and great coffee, served quickly. I liked the atmosphere and enjoyed my quick breakfast before heading out to the lake.

Eggs Bendict with a lime infusion never tasted so good! Make sure you make a stop here any time of the day for breakfast. Great coffee, great atmosphere, pleasant staff and engaging. Family style tables gives the place a warm feel. Reasonably priced and value for money. Would come back here in a heart beat, check it out!

The service was good. There was one server for every five customers. The prices were excessively high for what we got. The single waffle was obviously burnt on the edges and over cooked but served regardless. We were never asked about our meal. Staff not overly friendly. Certainly would not return nor recommend.

This place is soooo slow. Food is probably at the better end of a crappy bunch in Rotorua but the service is terrible.
