Now re-named Whare Waka, this previously known as the Waikokopu Cafe in the Waitangi Treaty grounds is in a magical setting and was a favourite coffee-stop for us for many years. Hoping to re-kindle lovely memories, our group ordered scones and muffins that unfortunately did not taste all that fresh with the coffee being only average. The setting, however, makes... More

Lovely food, good range in menu - and we really enjoyed sitting outside on the deck and feeding the eels in the pond.

This is a very pleasant cafe located within the tresty grounds, although you can still use it even if you haven't paid admission to visit the Treaty house etc( which you should....its a must see I think). The cafe has indoor and outdoor seating and the lawns, native bush and sream are lovely

We had a warm drink here last Sunday while walking around the Treaty Grounds at Waitangi. We all ordered hot drinks, prices were very good and cabinet food looked good also. The staff member wasn't that welcoming and its a pity the drinks took some time to be delivered. Two hot chocolates came first but there was another at least... More

Stopped by here for lunch, after spending the morning wondering around the treaty grounds. Prices are average for a Cafe, serving sizes were good and tasted great! If you love burgers, be sure to try one of theirs - they are a good size and really tasty. The salad was also a decent serving and tasted good. The cakes and... More

Nice surroundings, peaceful grounds - cafe is in the forest, and prices and food are "standard cafe" offerings. Worth the visit if you're planning to eat out - this is much preferred rather than some noisy, expensive place in Pahia. Great for kids as the outdoor seating is in a garden with covered tables on the deck. Food is OK... More

If you are headed to the treaty grounds this is a good place to refuel before or after. Idyllic setting, yummy food and good coffee
