Stopped in for a coffee and tea one Saturday morning when in Whangarei. Two tea bags in pot... great cuppa. Coffee great and friendly welcoming service. Quirky walk through gallery adjoining. Love it if this was my local. Sofas and newspapers to enjoy.

I visit Whangarei frequently to visit family and I always stop in at Narnia's for my coffee. Lovely, friendly staff and great coffee! Occasionally I've had breakfast/lunch over the last year and the food has always been great. Totally recommend the walk through the fur coat lined closet.

As the name suggests, it is better to enter the cafe by the quirky option past some local art and through the back of the wardrobe into the cafe main area. It gave my 5yr old a real buzz to think she was setting into Narnia for real !!! Once inside, they serve a wide range of amazing food and... More

We've never been here before, what a great place, lovely atmosphere, great coffee, and lovely cakes. The wall art is from local artist selling their pictures; some very talented artists, prices were very reasonable. The staff were warm and welcoming, a great place to catch up away from the town.

Narnia is one of my favorite places for coffee in Whangarei, great coffee, good food and something a little different with the way you walk through a wardrode to give you the atmosphere of Narnia. Lovely friendly staff, highly recommend!

Lovely coffee and nice food just very pricey... Happy pleasant staff... rustic little cafe which has character. Lately I have been buying the Guava Jelly there which is one of the best jellies I have tried. I still recommend café to people even thou prices are at the high end.

On the second visit i could tell there was a different chef because the mushrooms weren't so creamy but oily i wasnt too happy with the inconsistency. However the coffee was good.. the service waa average and my first set of creamy mushrooms was... More

If you want casual dining or even time to relax with a good book or magazine, Narnia's is the place to go. They have a bookshelf of books you can borrow while you enjoy your coffee and cake. If you decide to read a while you are not hassled to leave. They serve coffee, teas and other light beverages. The... More
