Healthy, yummy food in an attractive small cafe. Great service. My first time Rotorua-dwelling diner was blown away by this lovely place, saying "this is so much better than overpriced 'Eat Street'!" Definitely a favourite with this out of towner!

Just wandering around city and came across this gem. Fab service. My partner and I both had artisan breakfast. Devine. A great size meal with everything cooked to perfection. I had a coconut flat white. Best I have had. Would highly recommend.

Artisan food is homemade and hand crafted, from its inventive menu, right through to its understated home spun decor and friendly service. We have an exciting choice of creative breakfasts, brunches and lunches, along with a large selection of delicious, quick and tasty cabinet options. We're also very proud to serve Kokako fairly traded organic coffee.
