Fresh would be one of my favorite cafes to eat at. The staff are wonderfully friendly and the meals are delicious. Great coffee as well :-) In central Whangarei and the place to be.

Having recently moved to Whangarei from Auckland my husband and I have been trying out the local breakfast places and we were blown away with the superb food at Fresh. Really good, stands up to the best Auckland places. Great team working the kitchen and table service, Highly recommended.

Right from the start the service was the best. The manager opened the door for us as we had a pram. Welcomed us in and made room for us. Food was well priced and we didn't have to wait long. Staff were all helpful and friendly. Definitely would recommend.

We often go there on a Sunday morning for breakfast or brunch, would have to be one of the best places we have ever been too. The staff are so friendly and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble.

You might walk straight by and not even notice this place is here. In my opinion it could do with a revamp and some decent signage outside. But do go in..... The food is some of the best in the town and the cakes are to die for. The coffee too is fabulous with some great baristas!!

Fantastic cafe. Lovely food and amazing service. Good kids menu and a good range of choices for adults. Very family friendly - my 3 yr old accidentally knocked over a glass of water and the staff were immediately on hand to help clean up and make sure we were ok.
