“A Real Delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

We initially walked by this café. After exploring all the lunch options in town, we returned, and were not disappointed. Featuring an all day brunch menu and many lunch options with Middle Eastern flair, we had a difficult time choosing our meals. We enjoyed well seasoned lamb and chicken pitas with a generous helping of chips. The café also has a full menu of coffees and teas with plenty of sweets. Icing on the cake was the beautiful views of the bay from the tables inside!

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Well worth a visit. Loved my pancakes, the coffee was excellent and succumbed to a slice of the heavenly carrot cake too.
The staff are cheerful and friendly and the service was quick.

“excellent coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

me and my friend, we just wondered around oneroa exploring cafes we still havent been to. So we decided to finally go to Delight Cafe and we had the best surprise ever. After not so much appealing outside of cafe, the inside interior and design made us to feel happy and satisfied about our choice. And coffee and friendly staff did the rest! Coffee definitely was one of the best on the island (and we have been exploring really almost all cafes of waiheke island)!!!

Delight Cafe is definitely place to go for a pleasant chat with Your friends, the atmosphere there is truly relaxed and easy going! we really loved the time we spent there!
