Bennetts Café is casually chic. Located just alongside the Chocolaterie, this is the place to indulge in a signature hot chocolate or treat friends to a fine lunch. The courtyards, French fountains and fireplaces offer a tranquil and charming ambience that needs to be experienced, with plenty of tables both inside and outdoors. A blackboard menu and simple pleasures such as cakes, brioches and panini delight the casual customer. For something special, however, a seasonally changing menu showcases the creativity of head chef Rob Housley and his team. His emphasis is on fresh produce and he is excited about the many local boutique producers he can draw on to create stunning dishes.
The Café at 52 Moir Street, Mangawhai is open daily from 8.30am to 4.00pm for breakfast and lunch, and on special occasions for dinner. To make a booking, please ring.
