Fantastic cafe with the most beautiful setting - the food was excellent. I had an amazing calamari salad and my husband had the green lipped mussels which were huge! Service was great. All in all, a good find

We stumbled upon Luke’s after a long hawl first time flight to NZ. Luke’s coffee, cakes and lunch are as good as any Chelsea girl could hope for. Amazing! Great ambiance and by a beach to die for.
