Description: We have indoor booth seating as well as tables for couples and tables for four. If you are a big family don't be shy to ask our friendly staff to join tables, we are more than happy to do that for you. Outside are more tables and seating with umbrellas for shade. A view of our Clock museum with flowers surrounding a huge sundial gives plenty to entertain visually while enjoying your meal.

Feedback is essential for constant improvement which we welcome gladly. We hope you enjoy your meal, From all the staff at Serenity Cafe :)

“Good little cafe at the Town Basin”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This cafe is in the Town Basin shops, in saying that there's not really a water view but of the square and gardens. The food was yummy and generous proportions, the coffee was of a good strength and hot. We visited twice over our stay in Whangarei and had the Omelette, Beef burger, mini mixed grill and Bacon breakfast all were tasty and Large!

“Overpriced”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Had morning tea here a few days ago - would not recommend at all. They had a bagel with cream cheese and jam on the menu - I requested just the bagel and jam - and was charged the full price (a whopping $7). A complete rip off.

“Value and Consistent, best in the basin A+”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

I don't know why we try others in the town basin because they can never match Serenity.
Personally I find the consistency to be spot on unlike several others in the same area. I agree it can be a bit cluttered while getting served, but hey they are busy. Have never had a long wait even when very busy. Pricing is good, staff friendly and food good.
Best in the town basin by far !

“Hot RoddersSunday Breakfast”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Excellent location in the Town Basin Whangarei. We can park the Hot Rod's within view of the Cafe. The amenities are of a very high standard, the service is quick and professional and the food is fresh and cooked and presented very nicely. We will support the Rodders Breakfast on a regular basis.
