In my opinion this would be the best place for coffee in Wanganui. They have several Baristas and they are all good which is a bonus because it does not matter which day you go. The staff are excellent and always have time for a quick chat. The food is good and the seating areas inside are good. You can also sit outside on the pavement area which is very nice especially on a sunny day.

The Big Orange is always on our 'to do' list for a snack when traveling to or through Wanganui. The selection of cakes & muffins is great and so is the coffee. The staff are always friendly when we visit and there is great magazines and free daily papers to read while you eat/drink. Nice!

The Big Orange (and its inside restaurant/bar - Ceramic) are my go-to places when meeting with people from out of town. The food is delicious, they make changes to dishes without grumble (e.g. a sandwich with no bread!) the decor very cool and the staff warm and helpful. They are great for a night time meal later in the week too.
Absolutely recommend. If anything is not to your satisfaction they would go out of their way to fix it.
I also stop in with my children sometimes and they have a bucket of fries!
