Stopped here on a whim, hadn't heard anything about it and hadn't checked tripadvisor. What a gem - the coffee was super good and the bread, I don't know what you call them but you can buy sandwiches in long flat bread rolls, a bit like paninis, but I will never look at a panini the same way again. It... More

Your comments are so kind and thoughtful for your education we prepare all of our food fresh each day in particular all of our sandwiches to this day we never use yesterday's bread it just it not worth the savings its our goal to maintain consistency in the business Im not sure if you did not try the chicken Panini...

This place looks great & delivers on awesome coffee & food. The cabinet is full of beautiful looking options and a decent amount of gluten free options.

We always enjoy lunch or just coffee at Adoro Cafe. Lovely, interesting food selection, and really great coffee. Only place in town that does a "croque monsieur" anything like the real thing.

The coffee and the food are superb . The staff and management are very friendly and helpful. The coffee tastes like coffee not hot milk as some cafes supply . This cafe I would recommend to anybody that wants good food and good coffee at a good reasonable price.

Busy, central cafe with great food, and a fantastic atmosphere for meeting up with friends. Great, obliging service. Loved the seafood chowder - perfect for lunch after days of cruise ship food. High recommended.

A great central location on the corner of Dickens and Hastings. Inside and outside seating available and "small" clean toilets. A wheelchair would be impossible for the loos but okay in the cafe. It is all on the level. Good range of food and drinks and seating reasonably comfortable. It was busy with a lot of tourists but also some... More

Beautiful looking cabinet food and a good breakfast and lunch menu. Three gluten free slice options, although all served amongst the normal foods so I don't feel that it would be safe for those with Coeliacs, such as my young daughter. She chose the chocolate brownie away from other foods, and staff were happy to wash fresh tongs for her... More

We came into Napier for a stroll around and came upon this cafe. We weren't too hungry but decided to get a coffee each. Wow! Seriously great coffee - all the elements a great coffee has! Creamy, rich, full bodied. We didn't eat anything but the food looked great. I will come back here for coffee next time I'm in... More
