Savoury and sweet bites a like are delicious! They serve a good coffee too ...
Love the fresh baked bread ... and the smoked meats.
The furniture takes you back to Europe at the turn of the last century ... very quaint!

Stopped by to have a quick lunch. Chose the place because of the very good trip advisor ratings. Couldn't fully live up to the expectation as we did not have the feeling we were particulaly welcome. Although outside the place was a big sign inviting people for lunch with an extensive menu being displayed only a small menu with pizzas was available. Those pizzas however were great. Not sure if we would return.

La Familia has made a very welcome appearance to the rather jaded Whangarei cafe scene.
Small and often crowded - but warm, friendly and welcoming with a touch of Europe.
Excellent pizzas, fresh baked bread and a creative daily menu. Is this the only cafe in New Zealand where you are not charged extra for a double shot of their excellent coffee ... and a little square of brownie added gratis?

Crusty, freshly cooked thin based pizza as good as you will find anywhere. Inventive toppings combine with traditional to make this a restaurant worth visiting.
