Most times that we visit Whangarei we come here for lunch as we are never disappointed. Excellent menu, great specials and the food is beautifully presented. Coffee is excellent!!

We primarily come in for takeaway coffees & other hot drinks. there's a limited food menu such as muffins. It's all about the coffee here and over several visits Jolt hasn't disappointed.

Primarily I meet friends at Jolt for our early morning coffee fix. Its great to see the wall space being given over to high school students and emerging artists. There are always local papers available to catch up on news. A friend reckons that if you went to Jolt regularly, then in 6 months you would be on first name... More

Just stopped in for 2 flat whites and also had a piece of lemon yoghurt cake. They use Ripe beans for coffee which are ok but have a lemon/green zing to them which isnt to our taste. However the coffee was creamy and a good temperature and not over-extracted. The cake though was devine lemonyness :-)

By far the best coffee we found in Whanganui. Was really packed every time we visited so that is a good sign in a place you are visiting. Even though it was packed the service was quick.

Love how they put their business name on my hot chocolate. Warm friendly staff & they offer great food selections....who can say "NO". Spoilt for food with the temptations on offer, always nice to return & chat with hometown friends, whether it's outside on the footpath seating in the sunshine or snuggled inside during winter.

Good people, tidy atmosphere, efficient, and consistent. Lots of parking, almost like the brain central for Wanganui. Recommend to anyone.
