This can be a very busy cafe. Usually go here every time we go to Napier. Colourful decor, good coffee and food selection. Fast service too. Seating inside, or upstairs, and outside on the pavement on a nice day, so plenty of room. Friendly staff, who regularly come around and remove used plates for you. Will go back next visit...

Interesting style, good music, friendly faces. A rustic feel on closer inspection it needs a good clean in parts. Coffee took a while to be served no water was offered. Those of you who read my posts will know I'm an ardent coffee fan. While my coffee was piping hot just how I like it, it was rough around he... More

I found myself in Napier on a Sunday morning and I went to church at the Cathedral and then walked a block to Ujazi for brunch. I ordered the power breakfast with bacon, sausage, toast, poached eggs, potatoes and tomatoes. Oh yeah, and a flat white. It was all delicious and the servers were very friendly. They even brought me... More

Lovely coffee great atmosphere but a little noisey upstairs. Cool location in the Art Deco district of Napier.

This is our go to spot for coffee and brunch. Bit grungy inside so we always go on a sunny day and sit outside, luckily Napier is almost always sunny! Brunch is good and very kid friendly. Great service.

What makes a great meal out - great service. The gentlemen running this cafe were brilliant. The coffee was just as you would like it, food fine. We had eggs benedict and there was plenty of bacon. A small area under the stairs with kids toys were gratefully received.

After reading the very positive reviews we decided to give this place a go for some Saturday brunch. Coffee was delicious and the poached eggs were cooked perfectly but these were the only two saving graces. The granola was a tiny portion for almost $13 and basically a bowl of almonds with a handful of oats and a couple of... More

Brent F, General Manager at Ujazi, responded to this review

I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your breakfast with us on Saturday. We appreciate the feedback and it gives us the opportunity to look at recipes and procedures. I do not mean to make excuses - Our granola is a new dish we clearly need to re-examine it. Our eggs are free range but I am guessing... More
