A relaxed cafe and dining experience like no other. Located in the heart of Claris on Aotea, Great Barrier Island this small family run cafe features stunning indoor and outdoor courtyard seating surrounded by lush gardens and funky modern decor. We speci
It had been a long while since I last stayed on the Barrier but was delighted to discover this gem during our week there in February. We had pizza one evening, enjoyed the courtyard sunshine and music, and buzzy vibe with many obviously (lucky) locals gathered. It was totally laid back and a nice, beachy feel - pizzas were large and loaded with local produce with some great wines and ales to wash it down. We also came here most days for the fantastic coffee and the divine black bean brownie which I have rather become addicted too. Might just have to beg for the recipe!

Breakfast and lunch menu, homemade pies and cakes, sandwiches and regular specials.
Open thru winter which is great if you visit in August. Loved the food - amazing pies. Also good coffee. Happy!

Ordered small double shot flat white, and a big breakfast. Coffee came out in large cup (friends also did, and was also ordered as small). And the breakfast looked good but alas was very cold, all of it! Cold dry mushrooms cold roasted tomatoes cold eggs cold sausages the whole lot cold! Very disappointing and I certainly wonât be back.
We drove past, and made the effort to go back - and we're so glad we did! The hosts are charming and pleasant, and the food was just delicious. They were happy to accomodate dietary issues, and insisted we were welcome to stay past their 3pm closing, till the pouring rain eased. It's a bit hard to see the cafe from the road. There is a cafe sign on the road, just turn in and keep driving past the first building till you see the cafe proper. Its worth it!
