The food here is delicious and the decor and vibe is awesome, very laid back and funky. I'm a vegetarian and found vegetarian options sorely lacking on many restaurant menus around NZ, but there were at least 3-4 options for me to choose from, all delicious and all with good nutritional content (i.e. not just the perennial canneloni or risotto, which gets boring). The coffee is great (it comes with a little biscuit and a marshmallow) and the raspberry and white chocolate muffin has set the bar incredibly high for all muffins, it was that delicious. The chocolate pudding is HUGE, my boyfriend and I couldn't finish it together, so definitely don't order it just for yourself! We stayed in Rotorua for 3 nights and went twice for dinner and once for breakfast. Food arrives quickly, portions are very big and prices are reasonable.
