If you know your tea, they have T-leaf tea from Wellington. My favourite brand, and it comes in a lovely teapot with a China cup. Try the chai tea if you haven't already.

That was incredible. Fantastic coffee, food to die for and a fantastic atmosphere. We'll be back to try the pastries, pizzas and definitely again for breakfast!

The breads are just to die for. Proper smoked ham, always super fresh, hearty and healthy. Great change of menu rolling with the season. Top coffee and all that served with a smile from a crew going miles out of their way to get it just right! Every time. Slice of Euro-heaven and you can even take home your favourite... More

This is my favourite cafe in Whangarei - I like the selection of delicatessen counter food. I have the air dried beef roll most of the time.

We were there when the famous bread was sold out, and it wasn't time for a pizza which looked really special. So, we just had coffee which was great!

Great pizza. I had popped into the place thinking I could pick up a few things for impromptu anti pasto dinner. It's not that kind of deli..... One of the helpful staff asked if I needed help and suggested a pizza, which they would only half cook. I got the toppings nicely packaged up to take home and finish cooking.... More
