Kākā Café is open seven days a week from 9:00 am.
From October through April, the café closes at 5:00 pm.
Otherwise, it is open until 4:30 pm.
You don’t need a ticket to enjoy its offerings- we welcome all passers-by!
Take a break on the deck with some fresh kai (food) or delicious roasted coffee while watching the takahē, one of our country’s rarest birds and a national icon of conservation.
Choose from light lunches, slices, and daily specials – just watch out for the kākā! These cheeky birds are regular visitors to our tables.
Our location on State Highway 2 means we are easy to access and a great stop for those driving between Wellington and Hawkes Bay.
We also cater for on-site events and conferences – please email [email protected]
