Nice light lunch, quite busy even at 2pm....enjoyed my Vegetarian Tart - tasty. Lady staff member seemed to not be listening to our order so my coffee was small not large, but when mentioned it when paying the guy gave me a discount so all good.

It's a while since we've been to Rotorua, but returned to our favourite cafe there today for lunch. Though it was a chilly Monday the cafe was busy and buzzing. The senior staff have been serving in the cafe for some time and maybe this is one of their secrets. The food was excellent and arrived in good time. I... More

This is a wonderful place to meet friendly kiwis and enjoy the eclectic menu. Lots of variety and a great view across to the Lake.

Nice light airey place, thought lunch menu a bit expensive - Auckland prices. Loved the large communal table with noughts & crosses game to play. Far enough down Fenton Street to avoid the parking meters.

Enjoyed breakfast here last week after a night in Rotorua. It was a pristine (although very cold) morning so we chose to sit outside. The location is quite quiet with views across a park to the lake. The food was very good and the coffee was great. We would definately eat here again the next time we are in Rotorua.... More

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.

Searched TripAdvisor for the name of a good place to have breakfast and the Lime Cafe came up. We did struggle to find it for some reason but it was worth it. The map on Tripadvisor places the cafe several blocks away from where it is. On Google its at https://maps.google.com/?q=-38.132946000000004,176.25393675 It was worth the effort to find though and...
