We are very much looking forward to getting back out and about again

We have made some major changes to what we are doing with the Handsome Frog Café. We have closed the Café/Shoppe in Bank street and we are going back to our roots, a mobile trailer. We will still be working hard to offer you a Café that is different from anything else in Whangarei. But also something that is homely, comfortable, exciting and “A little bit different”

The concept behind the Café will still be the same. We are still offering wholesome, interesting, fresh foods of the highest quality. We are still making all of our products on site. All of our ingredients are sourced from suppliers that are as local as we can get them, including our Award Winning, Organic, Fair Trade coffee.  Which many I say is “The best coffee in town”.

We will have a smaller range of foods on offer, go to our menu and Catering pages to see what we are offering. Some of the range includes – Handmade Pies, Sourdough breads, Pizza and ‘Stuff in a bun”.

Our Artisan breads are second to none, Sourdough breads – Plain white, Wholemeal, Wholemeal with seeds and grains, Rye, German Rye, and a whole lot more.

An absolutely fabulous cafe, staff are always friendly and greet with a grin. The food here is freshly prepared in house with local ingredients, and tastes delicious! Their pies are quite easily the best in Whangarei, the pastry is crunchy and the fillings are delightful – an extensive range for vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters.

Four of us stopped by the Handsome Frog mid-morning today. We were greeted with smiles and seated inside as the wind was starting to rise outside.
None of us had had breakfast so we were fairly peckish. However we were spoilt for choice from the delicious menu. In the end Velda plumped for mince on bread – a reminder of her childhood in S Africa, Diane the Eggs Benedict (hollandaise was the best she’d ever had) and both Nigel and I opted for the the Brisket Pie. 3 coffees and a pot of tea completed the order.
As we tucked into our excellent meals we enjoyed the eclectic mix of music being played and the relaxed ambiance of the establishment.
We left 40 minutes later nicely filled and and wonderfully relaxed. Our only regret was we didn’t have space for any of the lovely looking cakes on display. Thoroughly recommend you seek out the Frog and give it a kiss.
