Hi John K - Thanks for your kind words - nice place to eat, good food and plenty of it - just what we want to hear. If I remember rightly even the weather was good! Thanks again - kind regards Anna and the team.

We went here for lunch. We were disappointed. The previous day we had been past and saw that it was busy and made a note to return. We ordered three meals and all three were below average. The wedges were dry and overcooked. The chicken avocado sandwich was below average and the nachos were sub standard. The avocado on the nachos was bitter and unpleasant and the ice coffee that was ordered was warm and not pleasant. I was pleased that when we reported that iced coffee a full refund was offered and the staff were pleasant and professional. Nice location just let down by the food. We would not return.

Hi there - I am pleased you visited Riverside Café so soon after a complete revamp and reopening. After only a few days open we obviously had not everything quite right and we apologise for this. I am pleased that my staff recovered some ground with you. We appreciate your feedback which I am sure was meant constructively and are delighted with feedback since that indicates that we are now consistently getting our food and service right. I am disappointed that you will not visit again, but should you reconsider please make yourself known to Anna or I and we will ensure you receive the experience at Riverside that we are fast becoming famous for. Kind regards Anna and Justin

Anyone familiar with Whangarei will recognise the premises that once were 'Mondos'..and will see a major transition has taken place leaving the sparkling new Riverside Cafe in place. The product has been lifted, including the quirky new logo.

It does not pretend to be a restaurant, but does serve good cafe fare-including great coffee.

Its' situation lends itself to sitting outside and watching the world go by. The Town Basin area is being constantly improved in various ways, and 'The Riverside' will be a welcome part of this. Our recent visit was to sit listening to some live music on a sunny Sunday lunchtime while enjoying a latte...very relaxed!
