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.

The Okere Falls is a great spot made all the better by the Okere Falls Store. We visited twice in the same day, first for morning coffee, then for lunch. Coffee (Rocket coffee) was brilliant, both latte and espresso. Hot chocolate got a big thumbs up too. Lunch was a chilli dog (extra spicy!) which was quite frankly exceptional, bacon and egg baps which hit the spot, and a ham and pineapple pizza, also delicious. We finished up with what can only be described as outstanding. It was slightly more chunky than a city-bred carrot cake but all the better for it. The topping had sunflower seeds, dates, cashew nuts on a classic cream cheese icing. Bliss! We had a couple of the dozen or so excellent beers on offer and a glass of SB. All were very quaffable. The café is understandably busy, be prepared to wait a bit, but chill out and enjoy!

We called in for Sunday Brunch after watching an item on their award winning toasted sandwich. Not too busy, got a seat and ordered the brisket toasted sandwich, pork belly banh mi, a cappuccino and a can of McLeods dark IPA, total price $52. Food served quickly and everything was delicious especially the toasted sandwich. Staff were very pleasant and we'd certainly call in again

We like a good coffee and we were getting pretty desperate (and thirsty) driving from Whakatane to Rotorua - places to stop are few and far between. We had a look on the map and found this place off the main road and decided to give it a try. There were so many cars when we arrived I thought there was a sports event or local market happening - no, just the cafe and they are popular !! The queue was not too long (time wise) and the food and coffee were well worth the short wait. The store itself has lots of interesting things in it and the food cabinets and menu choice meant there was something for everyone. I had the Kimchi toasted sandwich (GF) and it was good !!!

Went here with friends for brunch last Friday. Upon placing our orders at the counter the woman serving us made rude comments to 3 out of 4 of us. We asked if they did a side of hashbrowns and she very rudely (while rolling her eyes and looking us up & down) said “we DONT serve FRIED food here!”. My friend asked if she recommended the bratwurst hot dog, to which she responded with an extremely judgemental “Well NO I wouldn’t because I Don’t eat Meat!”. If her aim is to judge and bully all customers so they don’t come back then she’s going the right way about it. Wouldn’t recommend to others solely because of this horrible woman. Needed to buy water as I was leaving but decided to spend my money elsewhere because I didn’t feel like going back in and dealing with her again. *the other staff were fine & food was ok*

We are very sorry you felt like this. We are definitely not frying snobs, it is just not allowed under the resource consent we operate under. We have had a team meeting to ensure there is a more standard, friendlier response to this type of question so no one else is made to feel this way again. Customer service is and should be the most important part of our service and we have spoken to the lady who served you this day. We understand this is not acceptable behaviour. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and I apologise again. I hope you venture back again so we can show you how awesome this place really is.

Thought we would have morning tea with the kids. So off we went wing locals it was only a 10min drive. The kids really wanted chips, but too our surprise you could only order chips if you order a burger. This was a small treat for the kids so we were not willing to pay extra for something we didn’t really want. Very disappointed. I’m sure many folk would just like a single bowl of chips

We stopped for lunch on a damp day and the coffees were strong and came fast. A pie and biscuit were good The store is a shop, a cafe and a bar with seating inside and outside. Good for emergency supplies and they have a lot of ice cream freezers Women run business

The Okere Falls Store/Cafe had such good efficient service for our lunch, which was also very delicious. Had to laugh, I even heard another table say wow so soon when the waitress delivered their drinks and soon after followed their lunch order. They also have the awesome local beer Lumberjacks😋 110% recommend a visit.

I come here regularly just for the craving for their chillidog 😊 a place that serves great coffee and craft beer as well. They do what they do really well and maintain consistency always. Be prepared to always be greeted with a warm welcome regardless of how busy they are. This is a long overdue post that was sitting in my drafts. Cannot wait to be back there again.

This place is an absolute find! I am sure all the locals know about it, but as an out-of-towner I couldn't believe my luck at finding this place. Incredible food, awesome ambience, a lovely array of gifts / useful things. We were very impressed, and was the highlight of my time in Rotorua - sitting eating a Kimchi Chicken burger, over looking the water. Went twice, and would happily have gone again. Thank you.

The second time we’ve visited this fun place with an interesting menu. Also lovely cakes and pies in the cabinets. Lots of unusual choices. Our dishes were both delicious - smoked kahawai on home made grain bread and brown butter waffles with a poached pear, spiced mascarpone and candied pecans. This dish would stand up with anything you could get in a top Auckland restaurant. It was superb!

We came here because we saw reviews that said they had great vegan food. When we arrived they had dropped a lot of their vegan items off their menu, so we chose the only option left which was Tofu scramble. It was really delicious - great flavors and the coffee was really good. We also got a vegan sausage roll from the warmer. It's a shame they don't have many vegan options anymore, but I would still come back for the scramble. It's a very popular and busy place.

We had lunch after ziplining and a walk to view the falls. Great choice of food (especially the vegetarian and vegan choice - quite unusual for rural NZ) and firendly service. Highly recommended.

I had the best breakfast ever! Generous portions, great service and very friendly staff. Even though they were really busy they got the coffee out pretty smartly and breakfast wasn't far behind. Delicious bacon, potato rosti and perfect scrambled eggs. Was passing through Rotorua on way to Wellington, and have eaten at a lot of cafes over the summer holidays. Okere Falls cafe was a great find and the pick of the bunch. Will definitely visit again when in the area.
