Owner Jules, previously of a cafe in Milford had brought her nosh-making magic over to our Takapuna shore. Jam Organic Cafe is all you'd want in a local Takapuna cafe and then some more - great food, lots of arty and foodie books to peruse and all-round fantastic food. Helps too that this Takapuna cafe is fully licensed and serves some of the better Toasted Espressos around (speaking of which, check out our bottom-most Takapuna Cafe recommendation!).

“We can do whatever the customer wishes,” he says. “As long as we have the ingredients I’m more than happy to make anything, nothing is too big.”

Justin Muller, Owner/Chef

The quote above says it all; there's no leaving out from our list of recommended Takapuna Cafes a cafe with a customer-centric policy like the above. Latin Larder had been gaining popularity for a while now for its unique garden setting and immensely flawless service, and with good reason too - have you even seen the food that comes out of this Takapuna kitchen?

Little & Friday is an oasis of whimsy and quirkiness in the sea of over-commercialism and mixed service quality in Takapuna. Which savvy Auckland local wouldn't have heard of Takapuna's little gem, Little & Friday? This pie-making and lamington-baking extraordinaire is well-loved by Takapuna AND North Shore locals, and despite having doubled in popularity especially after opening a second branch in Newmarket, this humble little dwelling in Takapuna continues to keep service and food quality top-notch - there probably isn't a cafe in Takapuna that is more deserving of our sentimental love!

Takapuna Beach Cafe & Store is a legend of its own - it's one of the few beachside cafes not only in Takapuna, but also in the whole of Auckland that doesn't take its beautiful water side settings for granted and actually serve up some incredibly tasty brunch, lunch and cabinet fare. Takapuna Beach Cafe & Store takes it to a whole new level with the Takapuna Beach Store - the shop section does takeaways, pre-prepared gourmet food-to-go and what some claim to be the best gelato in Auckland, too. If this doesn't earn Takapuna Beach Cafe status as one of the best Takapuna Cafes, we don't know what will.

Sure, Auckland is known as one of the best coffee districts in the world, but plenty of these specialist coffee places are based in Auckland Central. Luckily for those of us here on the Shore, there is the Toasted Espresso HQ. Being the on-site roaster for this widely loved and savoured coffee brand and spupplier for what may possibly be the best coffee in Takapuna, Toasted Espresso Takapuna with its laid back and welcoming interior will make a great cafe hangout for both casual meets and the odd business meeting or two.
