Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Nice cafe, beautiful inside. L’Affare coffee. Next to the Redwoods where you can go for endless walks, with dogs, and endless awesome tracks. This cafe is well located. The cabinet food looks good, especially the beef lasagna. Very reasonable prices. Caters for vegan and gluten...free.More

Friendly service and quick. Food was great. Highly recommend the open chicken BLT sandwich. Perfect for little kids thanks to the playroom and high chairs. Definitely coming again.

We stopped here for lunch last Sunday, on the way to the Redwoods TreeWalk. The table service was excellent, loved the seafood chowder and ciabatta toast. Toilets were clean and tidy with no litter.

As cafes often do, the corn fritters were premade then microwaved. However these were tough around the edges, maybe a little stale too. Baked goods looked nice but the $6 slices and scone my friends had were about on par with ones from a basic...pie shop. A good variety of raw food slices were available ($6.50 for small piece). Outdoor seating is beside the road so a bit of road noise along with the nice shade and breeze. Staff were conscientious. Not bad but there are better options for the same money.More

A great place for good food. Staff are fantastic. The best cafe for me in the Redwoods area. A convenient place to go after your Redwoods Treewalks and even the Redwoods Altitude.

On Thursday our family and friends went to try the new' All you can eat buffet'. There was a wide selection of Asian and Kiwi dishes and everything we tried was very tasty. The dumplings were the best. There was certainly 'something for everyone' Both...hot and cold dishes and plenty of different sweets available.The only slight criticism would be that some of the dishes were a little slow in being replenished. Probably the best value in Rotorua. We will definitely go backMore

To come to a nice cafe after a long ride in the whakarewarewa forest and gulp down a potassium induced banana smoothie to help the raging leg cramps is one thing, but to say that said smoothie is to be hands down the best tasting...banana smoothie anyone could possibly wrap their stubby fingers around is well understating the glorious cherry on top of the already iced cake.

Excellent food from a varied menu. Portion sizes are very big and we could easily have shared two dishes between the 2 1/2 of us. Popcorn chicken was well presented and my partner enjoyed her loaded tacos. Out little one had fish goujons which could...easily have been an adult portion. Would recommend a visit on your way to the tree park.More

Wherever we holiday we like to pick out a good coffee spot and in Rotorua this was it. Really nice coffee and friendly service. Although we didn’t eat here the food looked great and certainly will try on our next visit.

Had some breakfast and coffee here.. and being an Aussie coffee lover I can say they make a cappuccino the way it’s supposed to be! I had the breakfast bruschetta and my fiancé had the ham, cheese, tomato and mushroom omelette, both were delicious and...set us up ready for a big day!
