Lovely staff, food, atmosphere

This cafe is a lovely little gem in Whangerei. Great coffee and cabinet snacks that hit the spot with wonderfully pleasant staff. My apricot and cream cheese muffin was perfect! We were too early to enjoy the full menu, but will definitely be back because it seems broad, creative and delicious!

My friends and I were very hungry one afternoon and were on the lookout for a cafe serving late lunch. Caffeine was open, but kitchen closed, only cabinet food for sale. That was fine as the cabinet had a good selection. We chose our meals and a table. The meals came and the food was delicious! And we also found... More

After visiting the Saturday market in Whangarei we shot across the road to Caffeine Cafe for breakfast.My omelette was slightly different in that it contained goats cheese,very tasty indeed.My wifes scrambled eggs had the added extra of salmon,hers was that generous she couldnt finish it. Well worth a visit.

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
