We were unimpressed that we were (along with every other seated customer) served a little glass cream bottle of water with a big fat plastic straw in it. Also the pastries, scones and muffins were covered with a thick plastic film that wasn't even covering them completely, not sure what the purpose of it was....all I know is that Deluca are contributing greatly to our landfill. Please rethink café Deluca in regards to your use of unnecessary plastics! We ordered tea for two which came in a plunger to be poured into a glass...having our tea black it was quite hard to drink as it was too hot to hold in a glass with no handle. The almond croissant was delicious though.

If it wasn't for that - I'd give a five star rating. If your into great coffee - these guys serve up the best in Whangarei. Food is good and well priced. Would love you to be open on a Monday!

Being such a popular place, you need to queue up alongside the food cabinet which is exactly where the wait staff have to enter and exit the kitchen - a thoroughfare. If you don't want to wait there, the only other option is to move back a bit, but the result of that is that you have your butt in a seated customers face...

And that coupled with the level of noise is why we chose not to hold our meetings there. It's a shame as the coffee really is the best.

Deluca always has delicious looking food in the cabinet, and at reasonable prices. This is one of my favourite cafes for breakfast, the breakfast menu has a good range of meals at good prices. Food always comes out quickly, even if the cafe is quite busy

The best coffee on our trip up North so far . The meal sizes are very big . Really tasty eggs , good quality bacon . Clean toilets , a nice place all around . Can see why people seem to keep returning.

Great muffin, great quinoa fetta pecan lemon preserve, average almond croissant. Definitely easy to access with council parking lot across the road. Very modern, busy, a little noisy with concrete reverberation but definitely worth a lunch stop.
