Nice outdoor Lunch

Great place for lunch. We are first time visitor to the city. Nice outdoor atmosphere and very good food. Situated across from a small park and the filtered view of the lake beyond.

Food was great, but service was a bit slow and we had to ask for our food. It's a bit pricey, so don't go if on a tight budget. $60.00 - for two juices, waffles and scrambled eggs.

lovely cafe, really nice venue, but a long wait for food. Also, the lady serving us was not overly friendly- in fact she seemed ho hum, and too busy to smile. Shame.

We had lunch here today. Very busy, with many local cyclists out for their Saturday morning "stop off" and coffee. A little disappointed this time around, meals not quite as good as last time. One coffee was burnt and thankfully a staff member noticed us looking and offered to replace it. Second coffee was a lot better. Hot chocolate ok.... More

Expected a little more from a place that had won new Zealand's best cafe! Food was lovely, waited too long for coffee as food was delivered first. But coffee was well made when revived it. most staff very friendly and helpful. A great spot right on the lakes front, overall a good breakfast had.

Beautiful cafe right at the lakefront but found the food 'different' from the average Breakfast Menu. Tasted good overall but you wont find French Toast or a Big Breakfast here. Had to get crepes?

Impossible to not enjoy every aspect. Awesome staff, courteous, friendly and the food is divine. We visited twice, once to enjoy a late afternoon drink just as they were closing but staff made it no problem and quietly packed up around us. Then the next morning we went back for breakfast, wonderful. The children throughly enjoyed it all.

A nice open air cafe right off Fenton street. Staff was average...cordial but not overly friendly. I had a chicken salad which was nicely done, and it had some spicey sausage in it as well. Quantity and quality of food was good, but I felt it was a bit pricey at $22 for a lunch salad. Look for the 10%... More

This is a great little cafe, nicely appointed with good staff, excellent food and good coffee. It is on a par with some of the better cafes in Auckland. The only gripe is that there is usually quite a wait for both coffee and food (certainly compared to busy urban cafes), but if you're on holiday it shouldn't bother you.

We were given this spot as a recommendation by our hosts at The Springs B&B (which, by the way, I highly recommend). It was a bit of a walk for us from the B&B but that gave us a chance to explore the downtown area of Rotorua. The food was very fresh and plentiful. The prices were a tad high... More
