As a newly diagnosed Coeliac (Gluten Intolerant), finding Be Rude Not To Cafe was amazing. Hubby and I went in for lunch after running the Rotorua Half Marathon, and was very pleased with selection and service despite it being crazy busy. It is a cool little place, great deco, obviously popular. I was so excited to have more than one Gluten free option (almost dozens in fact) for lunch, and the snack cabinets were bursting with deliciousness. We both found the food was top notch, coffee pretty good too. All in all, a fantastic finish to a great weekend. Will look forward to visiting again when we next visit Rotorua. Highly recommended!

My second time here and I feel that I had a very similar experience on both occasions,. I walked into the café and loved the décor and layout of the place, a really classy cross of rustic and urban chic, but that's where things seemed to go downhill, it took a while to be acknowledged at the counter despite there being 2-3 staff there talking about bands and other trivial banalities, once we had our order taken I looked into the open kitchen, and noticed that the 2 girls who were preparing food had no hats and cascading amounts of loose hair. We sat down and our slice and muffin came to our table, and I was disappointed, the muffin was dry and clearly a day old and my slice looked great but alas was dry and over baked, with at least 2 dozen options of muffins, slices, salads and savoury in the cabinets before you've even looked at the menu, I felt that they seemed to be pushing to hard to provide too many options as opposed to focusing on a few handfuls of truly quality items. The coffee was nice, but definitely no comparison to next door at zippys. It was inexpensive and the place did have a nice casual feel to it, but with 7-8 staff on at least I think more focus on attention to detail, clearing tables would be more beneficial, doubt I'll be back when there are many more cafes of real quality in Rotorua

Went in on marathon day and I know the whole city gets flooded but enjoyed how busy it was in this cafe. Just thought that the food let it down slightly. Nothing to write home over but would go back

We had lunch at this café last week, and it was scrumptious! My husband had a steak sandwich with beautifully cooked tender steak, I had a lovely lamb salad and the kids had well made pies: there was even some colouring in for them to do. Great ambiance and friendly service, definitely one of the better places to be in Rotorua!
