We were there when the famous bread was sold out, and it wasn't time for a pizza which looked really special. So, we just had coffee which was great!

Great pizza. I had popped into the place thinking I could pick up a few things for impromptu anti pasto dinner. It's not that kind of deli..... One of the helpful staff asked if I needed help and suggested a pizza, which they would only half cook. I got the toppings nicely packaged up to take home and finish cooking.... More

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.

Thank micsgirl
