Last week I had a Snickers Slice, it was delicious. Today I had a Jelly Tip Slice, it rocked my world. $5.50 cost for a generous slab of delicious mouthwatering Slice.. You must try it. Best in Rotorua

Artisan food is homemade and hand crafted, from its inventive menu, right through to its understated home spun decor and friendly service. We have an exciting choice of creative breakfasts, brunches and lunches, along with a large selection of delicious, quick and tasty cabinet options. We're also very proud to serve Kokako fairly traded organic coffee.
