Great place to start the day. An interesting menu, high quality food, superb coffee and a light an airy dining room.

the food and drink menu is very creative, and the décor is very cool. the staff is friendly and you can tell they know most of their customers on a personal level.

Walked in and was welcomed by staff with a smile! The server was on her first day but didn't deter from great service! Great first time and I'll definitely be back! Loved my caramel latte and savoury muffin!

Very shabby with tired carpet and tired furniture. The cabinet food is pretty average and the main menu pricey and boring. I find the coffee bitter and inconsistent. Have eaten here mostly for breakfast and occasional lunch over the years when in Whangarei for work-but last visit for coffee was awful. It does well because choices are limited in Whangarei....

Nectar is an amazing place to eat. Sunny, beautiful food and friendly helpful staff. The corn fritters are the best and the LEGGINGS!

Nectar is a favorite place of mine to go so I recently took my work colleagues for lunch - hmmmm I wasn't impressed by the service. They have a new Front of house manager and her attitude and attention was terrible. Food was fabulous as always but unfortunately the service was lacking.

Lovely cafe. Friendly, helpful, industrious and prompt staff. Perfectly happy to adapt my eggs Benedict to my liking, came out quick and perfectly cooked - this is surprisingly difficult for cafe chefs and I often get runny egg white in the eggs. Coffee tastes great, just a little weak for my liking, if you like it strong ask for a... More

Very nice gluten free brunch in a nice little cafe. Recommended. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in Whangarei.
