Received at $20 voucher and decided to have a weekend lunch. I have seen salads here during the week but none today. Lots of breakfast choices and only a few savoury, lots of different sweets. Our quiche was nice and we loved the cronut. Would go back again.

Enjoyed a delicious quinoa porridge with coconut yoghurt & fruit, and a long black. Porridge was delicious, not too heavy, and kept me full and energised for the majority of the day. My long black was perfect as well, served as an espresso with hot water on the side so I could fill to my liking. Definitely recommend :)

Been here several times. I really like the fact that the tables are not jammed together so that you can't hear each other talking or worse still, everyone else can hear what you're saying - which is probably why people have business meetings there. They have a variety of tables sizes and settings and views from the windows. the coffee... More

There are plenty of good coffee places in Whangarei. Avoid this one unless you like grumpy counter staff who can't be bothered. Coffee was ok.

I came there with two friends and I ordered a lamb pie that was so good with a fresh homemade ketchup. The staff was so nice, because we just came few minutes before they close and they let us ordered food and coffee.

I did my research and it said that Nectar was one of the best cafe in northland. After my visit I probably would try other places. We had eggs benedict and there was way to much sprouts and my berry smoothie was so thick you could suck it up the straw and I left it nearly full. The Benedict flavour... More

This place looksunderstated from the street frontage, all you can see is the food cabinet, service counter and a few stools and a leaner by the front window. But once you are inside you will find there is a nice area at the rear of the cafe, with a great out look over the town. Nice big windows and carpet... More

I often call in here for brekki or lunch. Delicious options on the menu. They aren't incredibly fast on service so don't go here if you are in a hurry. Nice fire out the back for winter days! Healthy food that still tastes great! Watch their business hours though, especially in summer, as they cut them right back!
