“Recommended by the museum”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Great museum in Waipu, so where to get coffee afterwards? The helpful team directed us 200 metres along the street, next to the pharmacy. The Cafe and Deli doesn't look flash, but - wow - it's a treat and it deserved its recommendation.

Small frontage, close-packed tables inside and with seating in the garden behind. Right by the door, the food is displayed beautifully and looks the business. The staff welcome people with genuine warmth and there is a buzzy vibe that suggests locals like it too. The coffee is right up to NZ discerning standards; we had other plans for lunch or we'd have stayed.

A good example of not judging a place by its street view. The Cafe and Deli is a must-go.
