Driving around looking for a café with character, we came across this little gem. Easy parking right next door to the café encouraged us to go and check it out. The café had various setting areas for privacy or for groups, lots of art works...More

The food was good enough for a cafe. You can reach this cafe without a long drive by taking the ferry directly from Whitianga and walking a short distance to the cafe. There are also some lovely beaches nearby that are fun to explore.
