The famed Takapuna Beach Cafe sits on Takapuna Beach, North Shore, Auckland.

It already has the upper hand of a great location that not every cafe would have on its side, but Takapuna Beach Cafe amps it up even more with food that even central Auckland city people would traipse over for.

Takapuna Beach Cafe & Store isn't only famous for its impeccable brunch and lunch food, but also for that exciting selections available in its shop section that does takeaways, pre-prepared gourmet food-to-go and what some claim to be the best gelato in Auckland. And if it isn't possible to love the Takapuna Beach Cafe & Store even more, they'd prepare a custom Gourmet Picnic Basket for you with advanced booking, in case you want to eat on the beach itself instead!
