Dear Coasties

The cafe features an extensive coffee, breakfast, and lunch menu, making it perfect for midday catch-ups and lunch meetings. Based on reviews, customers seem to be particularly fond of this cafe’s wonderful and quick service.

Dear Coasties is quite popular, so if you’re looking for a quieter experience, you may want to go during off-peak hours.

Oliver’s Cafe

Open since 2007, Oliver’s Cafe is an Orewa staple.  Serving up all-day breakfast and sporting an impressive lunch menu, you are guaranteed great food and coffee at Oliver’s. Their pancakes and smashed avo-toast are popular items off their breakfast menu, and lunchtime patrons seem to be very fond of the Calamari. 

The best part – many tables have great views overlooking the sea. What’s better than a meal with a view? 

Puff Cafe 

If you’re looking for food that looks as beautiful as it is tasty, then Puff Cafe is the place for you. Puff creates stunning dishes that will satisfy the pickiest of eaters, and they offer menu items ranging from bao buns to eggs on toast. 

Puff is a great place for an early morning breakfast, as it opens at 7.30 am. Many patrons comment on the high quality of their coffee,as well as their food. 

Cheek and Chong

Cheek and Chong offers premium Asian fusion food and cocktails, and it also has several set menu options, making it perfect for any occasion. Their dumplings are particularly popular. Despite dubbing themselves as the “new kids on the block,” Cheek and Chong have become a staple within Orewa’s dining scene.

Kawau Bay prides itself on offering the very best New Zealand produce – from Hawkes Bay lamb to locally caught fish, you can rest assured that when you dine at Kawau Bay, you’ll be enjoying New Zealand’s freshest and finest. 

And for budding sommeliers, Kawau Bay also has a wine bar, offering many local and international wines for you to sample. If you’re not a big wine fan,  they also have an excellent cocktail and beer list too.
