Nice to find a rural cafe with its finger on the pulse. Great set up, vibe and coffee. We will make this our go-to in future.

Great interesting food. Healthy and indulgent options. Only problem is location. Very small so loud inside and outside cars only metres away and trains at lunchtime. A real shame.

I've been living in Whangarei coming up five months now and have been so disappointed with the food on offer here. Not anymore. Hubby and I went for breakfast on Saturday morning with low expectations, however the menu looked amazing. The food was even better. Awesome, strong coffee, well presented, delicious food and plenty of it. Looking forward to returning... More

Went here for breakfast a couple of times... it's BUSY!! The third time we walked out due to how many people there were and the scant service. It does have good food if you are patient.

Wonderful, warm friendly service. Great coffee. The warm pecan brioche is to die for. A pity they don't open until 7:45. I would have come earlier and avoided an unpleasant experience at a different cafe.

When I need a fix I can count on Deluca to nail it every time - coffee is a consistently high standard, plus they have nice meals and great sweets

Very nice cafe in the middle of town. Can be quite noisy inside from all the people chatting, but this isn't a huge issue. They have a nice range of cabinet food and sell freshly roasted coffee beans.

I frequent this cafe in a regular basis and have done so since opening which must be 8 years. Without a doubt Lisa & her team deliver time and time again. Great food, great coffee, great service. Truly, you won't find a better cafe in Whangarei.
