    Rotorua’s Most Famous Café Landmark Perfect for Family Holidays

    Rotorua is one of New Zealand’s biggest drawcards for families, with constant geothermal activity and plenty of educational experiences the whole family is sure to love. You’ll be so busy in fact, that when it comes to mealtime, you’ll want a simple, fuss-free option that every member of your family will be happy with.

    Enter the Fat Dog Café! We provide a friendly, welcoming environment and a menu the whole family will love and were recently mentioned as one of the best stops for families seeking the ultimate New Zealand holiday experience in a blog by Expedia, ‘Your Family Holiday Adventure in New Zealand’.

    ‘Located in the centre of Rotorua,’ says Expedia. ‘The Fat Dog Café is more than a source of sustenance, it’s a beloved landmark in its own right with a loyal following of local fans.’

    From our tasty kids menu to our naughty mini hot chocs, we’ve got goodies to impress the ankle-biters, and we love being their number one choice. Our relaxed and quirky atmosphere is perfect for family meals or yummy mummy catch-ups, and our notoriously huge portions are great for sharing. Even our table markers impress, being cartoon characters or funny objects, as opposed to boring numbered markers. We like to make families feel welcome and that’s why they keep coming back. Come and see for yourself!
