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. Tour buses regularly arrive not far from our doorstep with lots of parking and a big play area for children just around the corner. Feedback is essential for constant improvement which we welcome gladly. We hope you enjoy your meal, From all the staff at Serenity Cafe :)

“Food great. Coffee average”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We had a great breakfast here - despite being busy, our meals arrived within a reasonable timeframe. There is plenty of seating both inside and outside the cafe. We had the eggs Benedict and the pancakes with bacon & banana. Both were generous portions and tasty. The coffee however, was disappointing - we ordered medium size and they came in big mugs and were very weak. Not sure if small was an option so if you order a medium, and like your coffee to taste like coffee, ask for a double shot. Would visit again.

“What A great place for lunch”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

We were a group of 7 catching up so went for lunch at Serenity. I had heard the pancakes are the best ever. Yip you are so right. The girls had blueberry pancakes and they were well presented and plump blueberries. some kept for lunch the next day.
I had steak and kidney on toast $12 and a great meal. So much steak AND kidney a marvellous lunch.

“In the Town Basin Area”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

A small bustling café with a great menu down in the Town Basin in Whangarei. Both inside and outside seating is available. Staff were very friendly and even though the café seemed busy there was not a long wait for meals.

“Nice food and ambience”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

Had a nice fish and chips and coffee for less than 20 all together. Good value and not bad service. A few flies in the restaurant. All of my friends were fairly pleased with their meals too.
