We were absolutely starving, the hotel restaurant was going to charge us $20 per head for cereal and toast, so we headed to the centre of town to look for a better option. There for less than 420 each we had brilliant breakfasts at Caffeine. I had eggs benedict with salmon on gluten free toast and my partner had bubble... More

I love taking a break from my busy schedule to just grab an exceptionally brewed Mochachino and enjoy the vibe, Caffeine’s friendly staff and excellent service always brightens up my day. I love their food which is always prepared with the utmost care and love, my favorite and recommendation is their Salmon and Dill pie- to die for :)

My experience with caffeine was great, I had salmon scrambled eggs and it was best I had in years. Caffeine cafe is one of the best and my favourite eatery place in Whangarei. I would definitely recommend this place to visitors

When I moved to Whangarei, I was on a quest to find a good coffee shop. What I found at Caffeine was more than a good coffee shop, I found a great coffee shop! They have great coffee, great good, and an amazing, friendly staff! I go several times a week and know all the staff by name and am... More

My partner and I can be quite particular about our coffee (especially after spending a year in Wellington) and we are happy to have found a place in Whangarei that we can count on to grab a decent coffee on the go. We are always greeted very warmly by the staff, which goes a long way to making a particular... More

Caffeine did take a dive when sold to new owners. The new staff are putting all of their effort into making Caffeine into the cafe it used to be. Give it another try! Go there there and help with the buzz. The chocolate is back and the coffee is superb. Now all it needs is YOU, to add the X... More

Previously my favourite cafe with an excellent vibe, everything has changed including the little touches. Hmmm... No music, 5 people at 10.45 am wow, it used to be packed at that time on a Sunday, where are they all? The food looked ok, the service was loose and there was no very very important element a host with a big... More

Service was rude! It's hospitality not a reflection of how much you hate your life. It felt like i was a problem not a customer! I will never go there again and will do everything in my power to never let another person have to endure this kind of experience!

This cafe did the most amazing breakfast!!! Absolutely huge and awesome. Only charged me an extra dollar for avo as well which I thought very reasonable. Had already bought a huge brekkie I suppose. Had the bubble and squeak (more like just a kumara mash I must say - but absolutely delicious). Maybe bubble and squeak is different here to... More
