Takapuna Beach Cafe

Ok, so it's the obvious choice to kick off our guide to the cities best summer cafes feature but boy, does it wear the favourites tag well. Setting, food, interior and service - Takapuna Beach Cafe simply offers the complete package. The menu features some ridiculously good options (try the marinated king salmon if the opportunity arises) and if you feel the need, do a few laps along Takapuna beach and then head back for round two and indulge in a salted caramel gelato smoothie...we won't blame you.
