“Simply excellent”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

Chaos is probably the best cafe in New Plymouth. Great coffee, fantastic cabinet food and a delicious menu. The only downfall is that it gets really busy and crowded - but that happens when a place is this good.

“A really great brunch”

We had brunch at chaos breakfast was an excellent meal and left feeling very satisfied. Service and food were excellent. Even though they were very busy we did not feel that we were kept waiting for our meal. Well staffed and very efficent atmosphere great.

“Absolutely delicious”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

My partner and I walked past Chaos one Saturday morning while we were hungrily searching for a breakfast spot. The place was packed. Even the tables set out on the sidewalk were jammed full of people. We figured this was a good sign. Just as we made the decision to stop in, a customer at a sidewalk table held up a delicious looking forkful of french toast, momentarily paused chewing, and said, "Good choice, the food here is amazing!"

We were not disappointed. The cafe itself has beautiful graffiti art covering the walls. The atmosphere is simultaneously laid back, and, as the name would suggest, chaotic. We ordered a chive scone, a smoked salmon frittata, and two long blacks. The coffee was rich and dark. The frittata had been baked to perfection in a small earthenware flower pot, and the scone was delicious.

Over a period of two days, we ate at Chaos three times. Definitely worth a trip! (Side note: If you would prefer a somewhat more subdued Chaos experience, weekdays were not nearly as busy as weekends.)
