Great coffee but the staff can be a bit rude. Got literal stink eye from barista? I’m not sure what was wrong with my money, but never going here again.

I was thrilled to be introduced to Sabios. The plant based options were fantastic! The staff were friendly and attentive, the place was clean, and although very busy, staff managed calmly, and efficiently. Definitely my new 'go to' breakfast cafe when visiting Whangarei.

We started coming to Sabio as soon as we found it in January after moving to Whangarei. So we've come at least fortnightly. Not so great day today. I accidently knocked my coffee and it splashed over the table. On immediately going to the counter and asking for a cloth the young woman came over and started wiping down the table....you would think great she's onto it BUT no, loads of mumbling and grumbling and "im too busy for this."
Then the scone arrived which we specifically asked NOT to be heated, it came warm and when we mentioned that, we were told "that we have to accept their standard and that's how it comes!!" Too bad, how sad...not going back!!

Table for two ~ only one got food. And waited 35 min although place was not busy. The manager informed me “ this is the fist I hear of it, mistakes happen” when I enquired. I had to ask for a refund as not offered. At the 45 min mark, finally left. Very disappointed at service.

Great ambience, authentic delicious food and superb coffee. Staff are welcoming, food arrived quickly and you get the feeling they like being there and creating food from scratch
