Having been here for brunch a couple of years ago I drove around before finally finding it again on my way to Whakatane. The bagel menu at lunchtime is impressive and the coffee superb. So of course we stopped here again on our way home from Whakatane to New Plymouth. Highly recommended

After walking around Rotorua shops trying to find a decent coffee place we decided to try Zippy's (because it looked like something you would find in Wellington - the coffee capital of New Zealand) and came away very pleased with our choice. Great coffee and our brunch for 3 was delicious. Good staff and service as well.

Zippy Central was sold to me as having the "best coffee in town" and it didn't disappoint. The clientele was as eclectic as the recycled retro seats and tables and it made for a nice relaxed atmosphere that all good cafés should have.

The food was good and the portions just right. The staff were friendly and free wifi was a nice touch.

Overall this a great little spot and well worthy of the local recommendation.

visit at least twice a week and love the menu and the coffee is great. Also open till 7pm so nice to pop in after work and have a nice meal before the movies. The chef makes the most delicious cakes which I love to taste with yoghurt or cream. The staff are lovely and very friendly and the service is excellent. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Love it and recommend Zippy Central highly

Stumbled upon this when we just arrived in Rotorua and feeling peckish. Just wanted a snack and coffee.

Friend and I shared a chicken bagel and they were happy to split in half and gave us in 2 plates. That was very good to see, hardly any cafes or restaurant would do that. On top of that, they were quite generous with their fillings. The bagel was fresh and very tasty, the mango chutney with it went really well with the Moroccan chicken. Yum! It filled that hole in our tummy! My soy capp was really nice and smooth.

Staff were friendly and service was great! The place was buzzing... We were glad we stumbled upon it on our way to the hotel.

If I'm coming back to Rotorua again, I'll come for a visit.
