Been here loads of times. A bit quirky with the old tatty sofas outside. It's called character. Tea and coffee is good and also plenty of good food. Reasonable prices, no frills and down to earth.

No frills and whistles here. Just awesome cafe food and coffee in retro cafe. Lots of locals and people from New Plymouth make for an interesting vibe in this cafe. Would definitely recommend to visitors and locals .

We headed to Lahar Cafe while staying in nearby Oakura after hearing rave reviews from Taranaki locals. Wow, what a cafe. The food was absolutely amazing as was the coffee. Every meal we had was devoured and enjoyed. The fries with aioli were the best I've ever tasted. Will definitely visit again.
Also loved that there was a fantastic little vintage store nearby to check out till our food arrived.

I have travelled through out the world sampling coffees but the latte made here is the best - every year we come down to the naki for a surf trip and every time we stop for our breakfasts and coffees at the Lahar cafe there coffee is always to great standard -even the takeaway cups rock - dont change a thing.

Excellent food, couldn't fault a thing. I just love this place will go again! I constantly recommend this place to everyone. Nice scenic drive to the small township.
