We visit this cafe regularly even though it’s a 20 minute drive from home. Coffee is consistently the best in the area and they have an excellent selection of food to cater for a variety of appetites. They also have a fantastic restaurant next door.

A great place to stop for a coffee and muffin, very dog friendly. It was a busy morning but the staff coped well. A very convenient spot to stop when you're out for a morning walk

Lovely lunch - duck salads, fish and chips, prawn fritters. Dessert of chocolate bombs. Great food. Thanks, Millie, for awesome service! Couldn’t fault it.

Had lunch with a friend whom we hadn't seen in years. The place was packed despite the late hour. Parking is no problem. Servers were young and quite attentive. The food was quite hip and good. Pricing is a bit on the high side though....More

It is legal, but I think it’s socially unacceptable. It spoils the ambience for everyone else.

Paper Moon is undisputedly Mairangi Bay's favourite dining and drinking spot. Be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or drinks into the evening, we're the place that pleases. Open seven days from 7:30am to 11pm, it's our passion to create the perfect occasion. We've had much praise heaped on us and we love it! Our simply named 'Beans and Bacon Breakfast' won us the Watties New Zealand Cafe of the Year title, and our Beef Wellington has customers raving and returning regularly. This is, of course, merely the tip of our culinary iceberg... Everyone loves a Happy Hour and ours is every day, from 3-6pm. So it's actually a Happy Three Hours. (We're good like that!) Bringing you house wines for $5.90, and beers for $6.90 makes us happy too! Feel special with a cocktail special on Wednesday nights - they're only $10. Our coffee is Allpress. Enough said. Except to say that our staff are actually trained on site and off by Allpress as well. We aim to please our many four-legged friends too here - water bowls outside ensure its not only the humans who enjoy some refreshment. Our staff love dogs, so you can be sure they'll be doted on and shown lots of love! And, with or without dog, it's always nice to take a wander to the beautiful beach we're blessed to have just a short walk down the road. We think one of our takeout Kapiti ice-creams compliments a beach walk nicely too... This is all good, we know, but don't take our word for it! Come and raise a glass with us soon at Paper Moon.
