Lovely cafe in Ferry Landing not far from the Whitianga Ferry. Meals are amazing, lots of choices, wine, coffee. Can sit inside or out. You must go there for breakfast or lunch and across the road you have sweeping beach views.

We were staying in walking distance and managed coffee, lunch and 3 evening meals. Decor is quirky, garden nice and the staff enthusiatic. We were particularly impressed with deep fried musells, duck two ways and ribeye. Very. Good vegetable and salad accompaniments. Inventive cooking

We took the ferry over from Whitianga for dinner. It is a 10 minute walk to the cafe. As we were a bit early we had fun viewing the sculptures in the garden and then enjoyed a beautiful meal with lovely fresh ingredients imaginatively combined....More
