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... read 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

My favourite stop for coffee! The food is also amazing and everything is always beautifully presented. The cafe is small though and is always busy. You may have to be willing to share a table with others if you plan to sit in during busy times. But the food and coffee are worth it...!

Came here for Brunch, didn't realise until AFTER we had finished our meal that my husband's glass had lipstick marks around one side of his glass. When we told the cashier, a half assed apology was given. Would not pay to eat here again, service is terrible. Food is good though, won't lie.
