Lovely place with such friendliness. A real local feel to the place and can't say enough about the hospitality of Jen the owner. Highly recommend stopping here for a bite or few drinks when you're on waiheke

Jen has been delighting Waiheke with her down to earth food for a very long time. Her pies are a legend and the quality of the cabinet food is consistently delicious. My favourite indulgence is the Thai chicken curry. Tourists to the island often find themselves at the supermarket in Ostend and that's where you will find Jen and her... More

During a visit to Waiheke Island I was told by some locals that this cafe was the place to go for the best cafe food, and they were right. The cafe itself is nicely laid out, and spotlessly clean. The staff were super friendly, and the food was excellent. I tried a couple of their genuine homemade pies, and can... More

Being a local I like to patronize local businesses but there aren't that many which cater for us- Carpark does that really well and you can see many locals there so that is a good sign. The food is homemade, tasty and reasonably priced. Always busy and it deserves to be- they do a very good job of providing good... More

I ordered a bacon buttie on warm bread. Why is it NZ cafes/restaurants can't do crispy bacon? Still, I could live with that, but I didn't like the warm bread. It was thick and soggy. The bread would have been so much better if it had been toasted. And the serviette was the tiniest one I think I have ever... More

Had a few visits here now. Makes no pretentions from the outside. But actually very much a high end cafe. Many locals- and some line getting a meal - sandwich for lunch. Love the decor - Best cafe ever in a car park ??
