Had a really nice quick stop through here. Kids had a brownie which they shared. Came out and was a double portion and really yum. Decent coffee and nice space.

Really funky cafe. The coffee is reasonably decent. The cabinet food is very good. Extensive menu hanging on the wall on big posters, which is cool. Baby blue decor is very cute

Had a yummy breakfast here. Good options for gluten free/dairy free. They make really yum looking cakes too. The potato rosti was the standout.

We decided to branch out and try somewhere new for us in Rotorua and found 'Be Rude Not To'. We were not disappointed and will be back. We had breakfast here and it was nice to have some different options other than your bog standard....More

My daughter and I had lunch here a few days ago. We hoped we'd find a table at it was a Thursday lunch time about 1.30 approx. Surprised to find the place half empty. Lovely display of cabinet food and cakes, muffins, scones on counter....More

We ended up here after the cafe we originally visited let us down. That was very fortunate for us as the service and food here are wonderful. Super tasty avo smash for me and a huge salmon board for my partner. Great selection of cakes...More
