Best healthy cafe in whangarei

I went here for breakfast. Good coffee and great selection for breakfast. I would prefer going to nectar rather than the over priced and average cafes down on the town basin.

Have been into Nector a few times, coffee is ok, sometimes good. I love the idea of there food but don't feel it's executed well. There cabinet food is bland, cakes are dull and menu descriptions need working on eg spice! Service is not good, maybe some professional training is need!

It's sometimes hard to find great healthy, gluten free or organic food, particularly when it tastes this good! Staff were very friendly and accommodating too.

This ia a great cafe worth a visit for locals and travellers alike. We popped in on Easter Saturday for breakfast. Nectar was super busy but service was excellent as always..we were served by the friendly english lady who made sure that my breakfast was gluten free without missing out on any of the good stuff! It's a pleasure eating... More

Fresh tasty wholesome food. Good selection for lunch. Friendly service. Great coffee. If you have to, beat others off with a stick to get the carrot cake - it'll be worth it. They should do a recipe book!

Not much of an atmosphere but what they do have is great food, great smoothies and great coffee. Pretty consistently one of the best cafés in town!
