“lovely food lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

visit at least twice a week and love the menu and the coffee is great. Also open till 7pm so nice to pop in after work and have a nice meal before the movies. The chef makes the most delicious cakes which I love to taste with yoghurt or cream. The staff are lovely and very friendly and the service is excellent. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Love it and recommend Zippy Central highly

“A brilliant stumbled upon...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled upon this when we just arrived in Rotorua and feeling peckish. Just wanted a snack and coffee.

Friend and I shared a chicken bagel and they were happy to split in half and gave us in 2 plates. That was very good to see, hardly any cafes or restaurant would do that. On top of that, they were quite generous with their fillings. The bagel was fresh and very tasty, the mango chutney with it went really well with the Moroccan chicken. Yum! It filled that hole in our tummy! My soy capp was really nice and smooth.

Staff were friendly and service was great! The place was buzzing... We were glad we stumbled upon it on our way to the hotel.

If I'm coming back to Rotorua again, I'll come for a visit.

“Best barrista”

Without doubt the best coffee in Rotorua Sometimes they might forget your order and sometimes it is very slow but it's still got the best coffee in town.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch on our way to taupo. We had an entertainment book voucher to use. We both ordered steak sandwiches which arrived promptly. We were amazed. The food was delicious, steak maybe just a smidge over cooked but wasn't dry or yuck. It had lots of great flavour to the point where my partner, being a dedicated meat eater said it would be delicious without the steak!!! Was a decent serving and the service was good. Would recommend to others!
