I had coffee and almond croissant and the people I was with had the pecan brioche. Um um um. My experience with the staff was excellent. They were attentive, friendly welcoming and make a damn good coffee. Definitely A1 for Whangarei

This has recently changed owners and lacks everything. Lacks friendly staff and the food has gone downhill as well. Shame because this place was such a treat in Whangarei. Cabinet was mainly empty at two separate times i hve been here.

Deluca is under new ownership. I’m pleased to say the ghastly pornographic artwork has gone with the old owners! Firstly coffee was 7/10 Eggs on toast were very average - toast was soggy from the poached eggs and the butter was solid from the fridge-...More

The best coffee on our trip up North so far . The meal sizes are very big . Really tasty eggs , good quality bacon . Clean toilets , a nice place all around . Can see why people seem to keep returning.

Great muffin, great quinoa fetta pecan lemon preserve, average almond croissant. Definitely easy to access with council parking lot across the road. Very modern, busy, a little noisy with concrete reverberation but definitely worth a lunch stop.

We always drop into DeLuca when driving north - which is about twice a month. It has always provided friendly service and the coffee is PERFECT, we drink every drop. Has a great atmosphere where you can relax. The food is fresh and the menu...More
