“Nice lunch with great coffee”
Review of Elaine's Kitchen

Elaine's Kitchen
Ranked #2 of 6 Quick Bites in Kawakawa
Price range: US$3 - US$11
Description: We love to cater to many nutritional needs from vegan to gluten-free! The healthy treats in the fridge run out daily and our locally roasted organic coffee is creamy and snooth. With a lot of love we take the produce available locally and make gourmet burgers, salads, smoothies and deliciously healthy slices.

Stopped after visiting the Hundertwasser loos. Nice wrap with freshly prepared filling, toasties, croissants etc looked good too. Excellent coffees. Recommended.

Very friendly and good, reasonably priced food and drinks. The décor and furnishings are basic but irrelevant in the scheme of things. We were a group of 8 on the Twin Coast Cycle Trail on a very wet day and were made to feel welcome despite being wet and muddy.

The food is delicious and the team at Elaine’s kitchen are great to chat to. We had a burger, wrap and croissant and all were fantastic.

Try the mince on toast with eggs! Perfect mix of flavor, with beans and a hint of chili. Perfect start to the day.

This sparsely decorated (only a few tables/chairs for the size fo the place) cafe is probably the only one in Kawakawa that aspires to healthful food. Having said that, there were a few vegetarian dishes and no vegan ones. There was only one staff member coping with the slow trickle of (mostly takeaway) business but we were on holiday and happy to linger. The food wouldn't win any awards in Ponsonby but the prices were good, the salad wrap was enjoyed by the wife and my nachos was tasty. Like most cafes I guess this one must have been hugely impacted by the pandemic restrictions and I'm glad it survived. It's not a "wow" cafe but it's a solid choice in a small town that lacks choice.
