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

Good blackboard menu to select from plus cabinet food for those in a hurry. Friendly service - they run out of pine nuts for my kumera salad and came and asked me what other nuts I would like instead. Hubby rates his bubble & squeak 8 out of 10 - one of the nicest lots of mash he has had... More

Caffeine is always enjoyable. The coffee and food are great and the service is always friendly. The place is always busy, which is a good sign, but you never wait for very long. I go there at least once a week and plan a lot of meetings there.
