I find this cafe a little busy, and only a few vegan options, but very trendy and right in the middle of town so convenient, may be a little pricy if you on a budget.

Some traditional breakfast and brunch food served with a fresh take. Good selection of unique cabinet food and an interesting goods store. Sure to bring enjoyment to your senses.

Great coffee. This is probably best place in Rotorua to have a coffee and a snack. Love the decor and they have a gorgeous little store with lots of vegan/gluten free options.

We went there twice for breakfast, and I had a third visit with a friend as well for a morning tea. Both times very good. Very good breakfast menu. Food available to go as well. I had their very tasty Bubble and Squeak with poach...eggs on toast (it had a different but similar name) and then the shop-made granola on the second visit. This was delicious. I thought it needed more milk but it was still very good. I liked the hot chocolate and the raw cakes they make. The raw cakes are very substantial for their size.More

Great selection for everyone between the menu and both cabinets. So many salads to choose from. The staff are very efficient and professional, portion sizes are on the large side. Great coffee.

We ordered the granola breakfast at Capers which was yummy. However we were slightly disappointed with the tiny bit of coconut yoghurt and of seasonal fresh fruit. We felt the Turkish toast could be exchanged for a healthier grain bread 🍞. I think they did...social distancing between tables using potted plants and food parcels. Very creative!More
