Zomer, Takapuna - Cafe Review


Spacious, inviting and friendly. Zomer is the latest addition to the Mckenzie’s development along Takapuna’s oft-forgotten Hurstmere Road. This cafe makes full use of one of the regions greatest drawcards - tthe beach (and accompanying views) - and therefore you get that distinctly relaxed, holiday vibe.


A key reason why Zomer will be one of Takapuna’s best. These guys have pedigree (having already cut their teeth successfully over the bridge at Zus & Zo) and it tells. We were greeted on arrival by the very friendly Clare and the other staff were more than accommodating.

Drink's List

Great coffee and arguably the perfect excuse to get your stride on up and down Takapuna beach. A visit to Zomer is more than enough incentive to get a few yards under your feet and get that exercise in.


The menu reflects Zomer’s summery vibe without forgetting it’s Danish roots and is likely to appeal to all palates. The Danish pancakes were terrific. Fluffy pockets filled with apple - just the ticket when combined with the berry compote. My dining companions pulled-pork sandwhich did envoke a hint of food-envy but that’s what repeat visits are for.

Most Surprising Dish

The grilled asparagus and poached eggs. A refreshingly light alternative for summer brunch.

The Bottom Line

Zomer will have instant appeal to Takapuna residents that have for years looked longingly at the cafe options on offer city side. Fantastic, varied menu and exceptional service when combined with Takapuna’s unrivalled natural assets - take a number and get in line, this is going to be big.

A Reason To Return

A Reason? I can think of too many … but the sweet counter treats could be a good starting point.
