We ordered wraps for lunch and they were super healthy and nice - our kids shared a kids lunch meal - which was so-so (definitely not worth $16)...and the coffees were both very average - had to ask for double shots (which is surprising)

Referred by staff at Quest Rotorua Central hotel. Friendly staff, very good food....seafood chowder particularly...ubiquitous 'seat yourself...order at front... display a # on your table' which we seem to be experiencing a lot of. Quick service. I would recommend it.

Upon arrival, we first noticed the counter was undermanned. There was a line formed, but nobody servicing it. If it weren't for the signage, we wouldn't have known we... More

Really nice place to have breakfast. Coffee was good and a lot of options. And all the food on display looked amazing! It is hard to decide what to get 😀

We stumbled on Capers desperate for a good cup of coffee and I think we have visited everyday since. The menu is delicious, the staff are lovely and there is a kids room with tv and toys - bonus, coffee in peace!

we enjoyed a great dinner during our brief stay at Lake Okareka near Rotorua this week, we wished we were staying longer so we could have tried more dishes from the menu!
