Well known and recommended by locals. Interesting meals and menu at very good prices. Lots of healthy menu options with salads served with all meals. The Pita Pockets took our fancy. They were so delicious we went back 4 times during our stay in Whangarei and we weren't disappointed. The staff were great and café is situated in a quaint arcade in the centre of town plus the bonus was excellent coffee and cake as well. Would highly recommend it as it is more than likely you will go there more than just the once.

Have been here many times. The food is great as is the coffee. Staff generally friendly and helpful ( but this does vary as many casual and seasonal staff}.
Value for money this place is the beast for lunch or diner.
love the atmosphere and the many different people that eat here make it a really great place to go

I ate at this restaurant regularly during my stay in town simply because each time I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. From the yummy cuisine, to the friendly staff, to being able to grab a coffee or takeaway whilst passing, this cafe never failed me. I can't think there's anything more I would wish for from a cafe and only hope that on my return to Whangarei that things are still the same.

Fat Camel is great for a quick bite to eat for lunch, dinner before a movie or casual dinner with family or friends. The staff are very accommodating and friendly and they welcome children. I have tried most things on the menu and you do get good value for money. A pita cost between $ 8-10 roughly. I would recommend Fat Camel for a healthy, cheap meal out.

Ordered 2 pieces of baklava to takeaway. No price was visible, and silly me, i didn't inquire first. We were charged $10.00 for 2 pieces, placed in a brown paper bag, not even any cream.
At $5.00 a piece for takeaway this is a huge rip off. Too make matters worse, they were soggy and not fresh. They had taken on the flavours of the kitchen/fridge.
