“Good times”

On my trip to Rotorua we were told that this restaurant is a must go.
We had a good time and enjoyed some good food.
Service was good and the place was enjoyable.

“Service with a smile & lovely food & coffee [THE BEST IN ROTORUA]”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

There is a lady there that always greets me with a smile and makes me feel valued. Her personality and vivaciousness makes the Abracadabra Cafe what it is. I come back regularliy because of the service & because he eggs benny with Moroccan spices is yum! I personally think this is the best cafe in Rotorua and the coffee is divine- trust me- I've searched high and low and this place comes out tops everytime! P.s- give the Maori/Polynesian waitress lady a raise- she makes your cafe waaaaay cooler! Good staff are hard to find.

We were only people there for breakfast. But thoroughly enjoyable. Kids and adults loved the breakfast.

“Different and Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

This place has cute little function rooms all set in turkish colour themes, it would be perfect for a group dinner or with the girls. We came here with my kids and parents and it was very nice. They have a little play house outside and there is plenty of space between tables. The salad was scrummy and plentiful! Strange menu for the kids though- they could improve on this I think. But would go there again!
