This cafe has a nice selection of food, is warm and friendly. Parking was easy for us but there wasn't a lot of traffic being a cold and wet day. It's easy to find and wheelchair accessible.

Established in 1982 the Bonzai has been under new management since June 2015. Now known as the Bonzai Cafe, it still provides all the old favourites, great pizza's and some of the best coffee to be found on the Coast. We've been continuing to improve the range of food available and extended our evening dining menu. We pride ourselves on excellent house made meals and good old West Coast service. All our produce is freshly baked and prepared on site. We make all our own cakes, pies, breads and savouries.
