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.
