Food and Drink



Maranui is certainly one of the most popular cafes in town.  The coffee is excellent, the counter food exquisite, and a fabulous range of cooked meals ranging from light lunches to full meals. May I recommend a latte followed by a Big Bay Breakfast.


Wild Style Surfshop

Wild Style can make you a coffee while you checkout the boards for sale and hire.  Light counter food and friendly service.


Flying Saucer Cafe

Has closed down. The owner must have given too many customers a telling off ;-) But never fear, a new energised, profesional and happy team are doing a re-build and are looking to make it one of the most fun cafes around. Look out for The Centennial Coffee Rooms. "Hey Guys, don't forget water for the dog."



Although Elements is 500 meters or so from the beach you still feel you are in the elements.  Cafe by day and high quality dinning by night.  Serving Supreme Coffee with your choice from the extensive menu, you couldn't ask for more.



Part of the Airport Retail Complex and a couple of hundred meters from the beach, this is a busy cafe selling breakfasts, lunches, counter food, light meals and fabulous ice creams.  Do your shopping at the Warehouse then relax at Mint.
