Had been to this restaurant with my family for lunch!! One lady who was the server and the cashier was rude and disrespectful! An embarrassment to New Zealand! Not only did she speak with arrogance but when v requested to charge our phone for emergency as v were international tourists, she initially said yes but later on tried making money... More

Ordered coffee - normal cap and soy latte. Both perfect - no burnt milk or shots and beautiful latte art on both. Staff were friendly and attentive. Place was clean, cute and lovely and bright. Will be back on the next trip down!

As anyone reading these latest reviews might have guessed, we 'do' brunch. We got a lovely eggs benedict although salmon wasn't an option (but gluten-free toast was). And no hollandaise...

Good price for great food. Staff very friendly & portions very generous. Ordered the burger. Would highly recommend it for its succulent meats and crispy vegetables.

Undoubtedly the best place in Rotorua to go for breakfast. The backpacker special was the favourite amongst our group of friends, ask for baked beans too

We were heading somewhere else for breakfast but our motel recommended to try The Art Café. We are pleased we did. They have a cheap all day brekky but we chose to get the back packers special no 1. They also very kindly swapped my hash brown for baked beans. We were also able to get a hot choc., instead... More

I popped in here for a late breakfast before my Duck tour which is just down the road. It was lovely. Very clean, very comfy seating on sofas, and a great breakfast. Backpackers #1 with a great cuppa. Highly recommend it. I went back later for another cuppa because it was the best I had had in NZ so far.

Lovely and cosy place. The muffins were so delicious and coffee amaizing. Staff was so nice :-) We spent a good time before driving
