You can always count on a good coffee at Caffeine. The barista takes a pride in every cup she makes. The new manager creates a welcoming atmosphere and is a great hostess. Cabinet ready or off the board food is tasty yet affordable.Free wifi and a square of chocolate with your coffee is a bonus!

Great coffee and breakfast foods. Due to nut allergies, my wife could not have the Muesli and was relegated to the porridge option. She pronounced it the best porridge she had ever eaten and would eat it every day if she could. Plenty of free parking across the street.

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
