Dotted with the likes of Starbucks and The Coffee Club, Takapuna’s café scene has always seemed ho-hum and pedestrian. With a funky wood-lined ambience, shared tables, and cool retro prints on the walls, Mimosa is a far more interesting alternative.


Keeping it simple and succinct with a short, but interesting menu, and Kokako coffee made well and delivered promptly.


Chunky fruit-studded granola ($8) and tasty grilled cheese quesadillas ($10), both well-priced and just enough for a lazy brunch with the Sunday papers and a good selection of lifestyle and travel magazines.

Most Surprising Dish

The alternative Asian-stylings of the Japanese Breakfast or the Bagel French Toast.

Drinks List

Excellent coffee from Kokako and teas from The Tea Lady in nearby Hinemoa St, both reinforcing Mimosa’s commitment to all things organic and local.

The Bottom Line

Mimosa is an effortlessly cool addition to Takapuna’s café scene, providing non-corporate solace and support to Shore-bound caffeine hounds.

A Reason To Return

For luscious summer fruit smoothies and the baked treats and slices lining Mimosa’s counter.
