Three of us went for lunch here on Sunday arriving at 12 noon. The altura brand coffee was served promptly and was good, but the food was another story. At the time the coffee came out, the cook came out to say that the gluten free waffles were unavailable and offered French toast instead, which she could use gluten free... More

Walk through the wardrobe to this delightful local cafe with a Jedi barista who's grandmother makes the mouth meltingly good bakery items. Best shortbread and caramel slice we've had in years.

This is my third time reviewing Cafe Narnia. It's safe to say my first review was not positive. I boldly claimed I would not be returning to the cafe. What a mistake that would have been! In almost two years since my first review, Cafe Narnia has taken leaps and bounds in improving their food and service. The coffee is... More

Came here for breakfast. Had eggs Benedict on a bed of spinach and they were very accommodating when I asked for some mushrooms on the side :-) food was cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. Many locally sourced and reputable (e.g. organic) choices. I think the cafe has a lot of potential to play with the Narnia theme, doing so... More

I've just totted up that, after a lunch date with a couple of friends today, I have been to Cafe Narnia 8 times in the last three weeks. The food is great, the service even better. Such a nice atmosphere and a lovely place to meet and eat at. Highly recommended!

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
