We frequent Quail Cafe often. Every time the food, service and atmosphere is amazing. I love the ever changing menu, that is not the same as every other cafe in town ... with the delicious favs like the fat Quail, salted caramel brownie and sausage rolls. Highly recommend for lunch with the family, friends or those corporate get togethers. The perfect spot for out of town visitors wanting to a slice of whangarei cuisine. Enjoy a walk before or after your meal to admire the Stonework and gardens.

Came here today with my Mum after hearing about this cafe.
Very disappointed with a lukewarm latte and a dry cake. The service was extremely slow and they were not very busy. Tables were not cleared and staff walked straight past.
The indoors were very loud and we moved outside. A nice setting but not worth the visit.

Managed to book a table at 1:00 which was very nice of the owners. However, at this time of the day on a Saturday there was not much to choose from and we had to order off the board. One of the dishes took a very long time to come out, we were apologised to and offered a free cookie, but spoilt lunch a bit. I do like the food here, but today wasn't one of the best.

Came with family. We were waiting for a 10 minutes for a cake from the fridge and about 30 minutes for "special of the day" sandwich. Besides, the cake was served for us without cream, but lady nearby got one with cream. Better choose another place.

The Quail Cafe is built within the grounds of the Quarry Gardens in Whangarei. It overlooks the beginning of the gardens and the bush. It is friendly, attractive, spotlessly clean and the food is above average. A wonderful place to take visitors. It is very close to Whangarei city but you will need a car or take a taxi. . Delightful place with a difference.
