Great coffee, friendly service, quirky furniture, lots of good food options, free WiFi... there's so much to like about Fat Dog. It can get quite busy, but it's rarely a letdown. Just make sure those pesky sparrows stay outside when you open the door!

A great place to eat in Rotorua, loads of room to sit and an extensive menu to chose from. This place will satisfy both carnivores and vegans, not 100% sure but I think they also are GF friendly. Good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We would go back and do recommend!

Lunch meeting with my colleague and we decided to go here again as we had met at Fat Dog in the past. Food is consistent and there is a wide selection to choose from. Free WIFI. Service is good and food is served fast (Although we both had salads)

My Garlic Bread was a little Black... (Over Toasted) so didn't end up eating that, but the salad was bang on. Easy Parking and funky atmosphere.

Coffee excellent. Slices delicious and large. Definitely recommend but one criticism - it needs a tidy up and a good clean. Visited here a few times over the years and just seems a bit tired now

The portions are impressive - there is no chance of wrapping your mouth around one of their burgers. The food was top quality and delicious. Service was average.
