When we were visiting rotorua we decided to have breakfast in cafe Picnic opposite the Novotel hotel we stayed in. The atmosphere was relaxed and some light jazz music was playing. The staff was helpful and friendly and showed us a table. The menu was diverse and the dishes we chose were eggs benedict and pancakes with bacon, banana and syrup. We were served after a short while and the coffee and dishes came at the same time. The food tasted excellent and the coffee was strong and with good flavor.
This cafe is worth a visit and deserves to be in the top list of Rotorua.

Lovely French toast - comes with compote and fantastic presentation. Chicken crepes were a bit on the creamy side. Had heaps of people coming in for afternoon cakes and coffees. Dishes are about $15-20.

Great little cafe. Went for breakfast and in future for a weekend I would suggest booking. Food is excellent and the owners and staff work hard to make if a pleasurable experience. Good size portions and perfect poached eggs. Can ask the staff for anything and they will do their best to accomodate you.

Stayed in Novotel, did not want hotel breakfast. Went both mornings as this simple but exceptional menu was gorgeous. Great coffee, great eggs, great presentation and a bit special for good prices. French toast a little sweet but just lovely. A real treat. Staff very hospitable and welcoming, no request too much. Two female toilets on site big bonus! thanks heaps for two lovely mornings x
