Description: The Chai Tea House is one of the best kept secrets in the heart of Coromandel town - a warm and friendly licensed vegetarian cafe with a magical ambience that may just keep you there enjoying the fine coffee or teas and delicious home made meals and cakes for much longer than you originally intended. You will also find fresh pressed juices, fresh fruit smoothies, organic chai lattes or you could be wild and try the famous home-brewed Kombucha Health Tonic. The Chai Tea House has home-baked organic bread, organic loose-leaf teas and great Kokako organic coffee. Enjoy our freshly baked gourmet cakes and scones, falafel wraps, paninis and a great range of toasted sandwiches, tasty quiches and salads. For keeping in contact we do have great unlimited free Wi-Fi. Allow yourself enough time to check out the collection of Kevin Richard's stunning photographs showcasing Coromandel's unique beauty or drop in for one of our live concerts. Discover the peace of our back garden courtyard with a sand box for the children or sink into one of our comfy chairs out on the street. Get ready for a treat. We look forward to welcoming you!

“found a gorgeous funky cafe in coromandel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Atmosphere is really great, if you are looking for a cafe that offers genuine organic and delicious vegetarian options - this is the place to come. Enjoyed every dish we ordered, the date scones are amazing and the chocolate mini muffins are gloriously addictive!! Give it a try even if you are not vegetarian as all the mains are scrummy! Wifi on tap, and great service -we will be back.

“Kombucha.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

Wow. The kumbucha is amazing here.
Been supporting this cafe since it opened four years ago.
Friendly relaxing oasis within the Coromandel township.
Chai Tea house prides itself on vegetarian delights with coffee to boot.
For those in a super hurry..grab a petrol station feed across the street. Chai tea house is well worth the wait if they're busy.

“Fantastic coffee house in Coromandel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Excellent coffee, delicious muesli and bakery products, terrific service and funky, eclectic decor. Nothing more needs to be said. If you're in the area, go here for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea.
