A view of our Clock museum with flowers surrounding a huge sundial gives plenty to entertain visually while enjoying your meal.

Feedback is essential for constant improvement which we welcome gladly. We hope you enjoy your meal, From all the staff at Serenity Cafe :)

“Best scrambled eggs in NZ !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Every time I come to Whangarei I have to have a breakfast at Serenity ! Its mandatory !!! The scrambled eggs are the best I have ever eaten in all my years of traveling and I keep going back just to make sure it still is the best. Their coffee is pretty average but its the eggs that keep me coming back for more !!!!!

“Consistantly Good Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

They have a large Menu and I'm always trying different things and always find them a pleasant experience. The specialty is Breakfast, Lunch, Good Coffee and lots of other options
The tables always seem to be busy particularly on the weekends and often we book a table in advance.
The fresh produce specials of the day are usually worth a try.

“Pancake delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

Sitting outside by the Whangarei waterfront was very pleasant. A family party of nine all with different pancake orders did not faze the staff although it was a busy lunchtime. Best buy was Bacon and banana pancake!

“Average food and cafe, nice staff tho and unbeatable value.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

Great for value for money. Not good if you like your food and you're looking for something with a bit of a difference. Standard brekkie options... Nice big potions but nothing special (lots of loaves Of budget bread on show)
. But all in all okay. Nice staff and good coffee. Got my pancakes wrong but instead of taking it away and replacing let us keep those AND brought new ones again.... Bonus!!
