When ever we travel to Rotorua for a weekend get away we always have brunch at Lime. Yesterday we were disappointed in our brunch - bacon was processed not streaky as they used to use. Staff were lovely but might re think next time we are there.

The lady in question is one of the reasons I return every month as she is lovely and always remembers my order. I have never find her rude or obnoxious, people... More

We tried breakfast here, trying the vanilla risotto and the bacon and eggs. Service was friendly and quick, the coffee was very good and our meals were nicely presented and well cooked. Nice cafe, good food.

We dropped into Lime on for afternoon tea on our last day in Rororua. The lunch rush was just finishing up so we didn't have a problem finding a table for two. The majority of the patrons seemed to be locals, which is always a good sign! We enjoyed a couple of squares and drinks (ran us just shy of... More

Ordered the Eggs Benedict with bacon and then the same with salmon the next day! Both were well cooked, presented and served. Adequate amounts of sauce and the eggs were runny without being under cooked. Coffee was ok. Just... More

Great food & coffee, served by top staff. Friendly and engaging but not intrusive. Have been here a number of times and it is consistently good. Great location. Pleasure to eat here. Highly recommended.
