We have just moved to Rotorua and discovered this lovely cafe/deli. Delightful staff, fast service, great coffee and our eggs on toast were exactly what we wanted. Have only been once but will definitely go again!

You know some places give you the impression that you are slowing them down and you need to hurry along? That was our experience at Capers this time. Just a little to self important, a little brusque! Chill, ladies!

Have been coming here for years and after a couple of years away it is still a solid and dependable place to go. Service is friendly and efficient and has a kids room as well which is a bonus

Nice selection of cabinet foods plus menu. Nicely presented. A bit pricey but it's worth it. Sweets are amazing with the French chocolate tart being really beautiful.
