“Long wait for food”
Review of Quail Cafe

Quail Cafe
Ranked #4 of 27 Quick Bites in Whangarei
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 May 2022 via mobile

Came across this cafe after a walk in the gardens. Unfortunately this place is let down by terrible service. Waited over an hour for food to arrive. No apologies given. Not worth the wait. Food arrived cold. Also note to staff, if you drop utensils on the ground, please was them and not use them on food!

Went here quite a few times in Summer 2021 while moving my Mum up North. It is the loveliest cafe, set in Quarry Gardens, it is very busy and you can see why, it has the best food and the staff are so lovely. I bought my Mum here for a little birthday morning tea and they even put a candle on her cake. She was made to feel very special. I look forward to visiting again when i am in NZ

I’ve often met family here on Sundays for brunch as the menu caters for young and old. The staff are very attentive and the atmosphere is 10/10. You could enjoy a stroll in the garden or just have a quick cuppa. There’s vegan options and their chef seems to really push out your order even when super busy. For me Quail is a hidden gem that everyone should enjoy.

We enjoyed the mac'n'cheese and chicken croissant with an iced latte, all delicious. Staff were efficient and setting is beautiful, a great lay by if you're needing a rest and to energise for another go in the gardens

The food was superb. It was so tasty, the portions are perfect and the options are tantalising. We highly recommend. Everything on the menu looks delicious. The venue it's in makes the whole experience even more enjoyable. Bravo team!! Amazing.
