Directions to Karaka Cafe
Modern cafe on Taranaki St Wharf. A la carte and counter-top dishes, exemplary service, and idyllic location. Contemporary Maori decor and a very local atmosphere. Child-friendly.
Karaka Cafe opened in February 2011 and has quickly become a favourite brunch destination for many Wellingtonians. The beautiful waterfront location has the added bonus of enjoying the very last of the afternoon sun. Great in summer, and especially inviting on those lovely, long, winter afternoons. Come at any time of year, though, and you'll be treated to an authentic New Zealand menu that mixes Maori cuisine with more modern, Kiwi fare.
Karaka Cafe can comfortably seat up to 100 people, both inside and out on the large al fresco dining area. Named for the karaka fruit located in the karaka grove, the bright colours and generous floor to ceiling windows really bring the outside in.
Karaka Cafe offers a wide range of both a la carte and counter-top dishes, all beautifully presented. If you're short on time, there are delicious Danishes, sandwiches and cakes. Try a silky smooth hot cocoa or a healthy soy flat white, and enjoy Sunday brunch with the newspaper and beautiful water views.
For a more substantial meal, there's everything from fresh salmon to delectable chicken with horiptio. It's also worth trying out some of the more traditional Maori dishes, like mutton bird pate, Maori bread, and their famous Hangi Hash.
Karaka Cafe is available for private hire most evenings. Table reservations can be made every day except Saturday and Sunday days.
Monday-Tuesday: 7am - 4pm
Wednesday-Thursday: 7am - 6pm
Friday: 7am - late
Saturday-Sunday: 8am - early evening
