Lifeboat Cafe

Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 January 2017 via mobile

This small café is a real treat. Friendly staff serve good quality traditional food. The coffee is good too. The beach is about 50m away. Unless you go to Plimmerton, there is no café to match the Life Boat in Porirua.

Don't be put off by its small stature, the menu is quite broad & caters for most ( home made too!) and heaps of warmth & character. A real cosy feel where a conversation with one person can often become a whole cafe thing and gives you a real sense of connection & community. BTW the homemade pies are FANTASTIC!

Just off the entrance to the beach area this little cafe does a number of simple dishes - all home cooked. Typically Kiwi so open and friendly. Not much seating inside but worth a visit.

It was nice to see the café opened for an evening meal to cater for all those mothers out there who were prepared to be spoilt and pampered by not having to cook on this special day. There were tasty dishes, tapas and non alcoholic jugs of drinks to go with it. Wondered when the music would start but have been promised it will come next time we visit. Well worth a drive to the bay
