Good coffee

Probably the best coffee in town, the only thing that would make it better is to stir the sugar into a takeaway. Definitely the best cabinet food, really good sandwiches and salad! Maybe the staff could smile a little bit more. But will always go back, my favourite in Whangarei.

Whilst this little place looked promising, after a handful of visits I can only conclude this place is a shocker. The acoustics inside are terrible, so you can hardly hear yourself think, let alone talk to the person next to you. Every time I've been there I've had to basically yell across the table to have a conversation, to replies... More

We have just moved from living in Auckland for many years to try and make a life here. I am hesitant to be a wingeing Jaffa ( as well as a Pom) but Whangaeri leaves a lot to be desired in terms of urban culture, so it was with great relief that I found Duluca. The buzz was urban the... More

My husband and I visited Deluca Cafe for the first time after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. It's a very relaxed atmosphere, somewhat noisy so don't go if you want a quiet place to eat. The food looks good as one enters! I had a bit of trouble reading the scrawl on the food cabinet explaining what was what and the... More

Great service, fast and friendly in this very busy cafe on a Saturday morning after the Whangarei market. The food is excellent as is presentation and we all love how utensils and cold drinks are served, just adds to the vibe.

Situated on Bank Street in walking distance to the town centre, Forum North and the excellent Whangarei Library, Deluca Café offers quite possibly the best coffee in Whangarei. Unassuming atmosphere, great for a quick recharge coffee. They also offer good café style food.

Without a doubt the best cafe in Whangarei and up there with the best in NZ. Super friendly staff serve amazing Supreme coffee that was so good the only option was to have more. The cabinets are stocked with incredible baked goods, the cronuts a highlight for me. Over the few days I spent in Whangarei I think I visited... More
