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.

I love this cafe!! They have the yummiest food and their cabinet always looks great. The people running the cafe are also the most friendliest. There is just everything to love about this cafe! They buy fresh produce from the growers market as well because...I’ve seen them buying from the market. So all in all a must visit if you’ve never been.More

Worth the drive from Auckland for Deluca's great long black coffees and beautiful food! We are both coffee snobs and I didn't expect we'd find such good coffee on a chance stop, just off the main highway North in Whangarei! Breakfast was Smashed Avocado on...Ciabatta toast, with the freshest poached eggs... perfectly cooked and quality cured streaky bacon & hot sauce. We were heading to Kerikeri to stay with a relative, so we bought a selection of take-out food when we left, including Deluca's Smoked Fish Pies and chicken and mushroom pies... They were so good! The only disappointing thing is that Deluca wasn't open on our return journey to Auckland, as we were both looking forward to their divine coffee and lunch. Deluca will definitely be our go-to cafe when we are next going through Whangarei, we highly recommend it!More

This place must have one of the best food cabinet displays anywhere in NZ. Full of options, with some interesting salads. Muffins and scone on the side too. Date scone was excellent - that crumbly texture from lots of butter? and choc full of dates....Generous filling in the filled croissant as well. Full menu on top of these selections too. Strong coffee, delightful flower arrangements on all tables, interesting art work and super friendly and welcoming service. Just across from public carpark. Probably best choice in Whangarei.More

At last, a place that makes scones and muffins onion and garlic free. Really beautiful food. Scones so buttery and light yet packed with filling. Muffins that melt in your mouth. I travel from Kamo to come here at lunchtime. So worth the little trip.

It was not my first time to Deluca cafe, each time I come the service is impeccable and the food is prepared to a very high standard. Menu options are able to cover many food options.

Centrally located, free WiFi in a lovely clean establishment. Good for a quick catchup. Pastries and cakes are lovely and fresh. Bit of an echo when we visited due to some over excited patrons - might be problematic if meeting to conduct business
