More than decent café on Bank St

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!

Went here for morning tea and took a seat in the lounge. We had been sitting here for a few minutes and then was asked to move by a grumpy waitress as she needed to reserve the table. During the whole time we were there, no one came in to sit at the reserved table. Ordered some slices from the... More

My husband and I had lunch here on Christmas Eve. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I loved the range of vegetarian food, which could have meat added. I had vegan nachos made using quinoa and when I commented how much I'd liked them the waitress told me that the recipe was up on their Facebook page. My... More

Family breakfast here - staff friendly and helpful; great coffee; food wonderful - very tasty and excellent menu. Nothing a problem. Great views out the large windows. Easy to see why it was busy and also why it is our children's cafe of choice! Well done. When we are back - we will be back here!

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!
