Description: A comfortable two-hour drive from Auckland City, The Old Mill Cafe resides opposite Tairua Marina overlooking picturesque Tairua Harbour. Nestled quietly at the base of Paku Hill. Great spot to come for fabulous breakfasts made with free-range eggs and free farmed bacon. A wide variety of options for lunch ranging from Fresh Coromandel Mussels to freshly caught fish and chips and epic beef pies for the meat lovers out there. We use fresh produce and focus on fresh seafood but we cater to all diets including Gluten free, Vegetarian and Vegan. We have a wide range of yummy cakes, quiches and pies to accompany your coffee by Allpress. And cocktails & platters are available from 3pm to 6pm just in time for sunset over Tairua Harbour. And to finish off try a Kapiti ice cream served in a cone. Our menu is seasonal. We are fully licensed and carry a discerning range of local, NZ and overseas wines, beers and ciders. Make sure you check out our international deli and fresh french artisan breads. Every Sunday we have live music!

We celebrated our wedding with Linda and her team and can say nothing bad, Linda took the time to prepare a menu and venue that was both classy yet casual. The food was fantastic! Absolutely delicious! I highly recommend visiting the old mill, it is and will remain a very special place with the best food venue and service in Tairua.
Thanks Linda, we look forward to visiting again.

This cafe/restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and serves delicious food. Brunch on the weekend is particularly good.

The service is a little haphazard although definitely friendly - but the location and the food are simply great. The menu is not extensive - but what I have had has been excellent. Brilliant mushroom and rocket risotto.

Great spot and nice people. Best spot in Tairua.

---- as it's also a lovely restaurant. Was a chilly night when we w.ere there - but the heater was going, and the atmosphere was good. Food was delicious. Thought they could have been a bit more generous with the wine measures
