Great food, good value but the wait is ages! On the 3 occasions we have tried, it didn't improve each time. If you only have an hour for lunch, don't bother or love eating fast.

This well located café serves really good food and at prices most families can afford. It bustles with activity providing a convenient watering hole to Whakatane shoppers and visitors and it is situated in the pretty main street, just behind the Library

You can judge a cafe by its popularity! Fig Licensed Cafe is a go-to favourite that makes a good all-in-one stop, especially with the yummy foods from the blackboard menu, the great coffee and the option to also enjoy a glass of wine or beer. Fig serves tasty fare for breakfast and lunch, and resonates a Kiwi take on urban sophistication. Relax indoors or enjoy the outside courtyard, which is peacefully tucked away with the rolling hills as a backdrop and also features local art sculptures. All food is baked & prepared on premises and there is free wireless internet. The Fig is a great place to create memories with the people closest to you.
