La Familia has got the charm of a European 'Cafe-Restaurant'. I can recommend it at any time of the day. The Pizza is fantastic and reasonably priced. The home baking delicious, their European style breads are for sale to take away as well. A wonderful place to meet with people or simply enjoy a fresh 'Blackforest ham bun' with a... More

The Cafe is right opposite to Whangarei Police Station and at the corner of Cameron and Walton Street. I walked in at 2:30pm and it's almost full. I have coffee and almond croissant. It was an enjoyable afternoon tea.

We stopped here on our way to the Falls without knowing anything about this cafe. Upon entering, we realised that it was popular as we only got a table as two people were leaving. Judging by what many were eating, the pizzas were popular but both my husband and I did not think we could finish one, so we opted... More

We were looking for a coffee break and found this located on the edge of the town center on a corner location. It used to be a old butcher shop based on the photo on the wall. Anyway, they provide very good breakfast options and the coffee was one of the best I have had. Simple bacon and eggs were... More

When in whangarei recently stopped here for lunch on TA reviews. Ordered 2 pizzas including the day special of bacon and prawn. Great crisp base, yummy toppings. Really enjoyed and very reasonably priced. $14.50 for the special. Nice friendly service and some cabinet selections too. Will return when here next.

Genuinely, amazingly good pizza, great service and delicious snacks, counter food and menu items. We stumbled across this place last year and now go out of our way to visit every time we are in or near Whangarei. Fresh ingredients that are beautifully prepared and it really is the tastiest pizza we have found in NZ! Have never felt compelled... More

Best Pizza in Whangarei. Good deli style food and great coffee. Small though usually no problems finding a table. Friendly staff willing to help. Central location. Affordable.

The best and only eatery in Whangarei that serves totally authentic, euro-priced pizza! And, beautiful pastries, deli rolls, cakes, excellent coffee and a wide range of beverages. The cafe owner takes immense pride in this place and I only wish she weren't selling and/or desperately hope a similar person buys this little gem. Service is awesome, staff are happy, food... More
