This cafe is licensed on the marina so is used by a lot of people with boats moored down there. Everything is freshly cooked

Relaxed dining at the marina. The fish was light and fluffy, really tasty, and the bacon and mushroom pasta was delicious. Service was very friendly and our meals came quickly.

Little place on the marina is great for everyone. A beer for guys, an ice cream for the kids and a coffee for me. The staff are friendly and its lovely and clean.

It's very much an extremely casual cafe, but the fish and chips are good, and the Kapiti ice-creams welcome after a day on the Bay.

Very friendly and great atmosphere. The Dave's, Ann and family provide a range of food options and are happy to deviate from the menue. The beer is always cold and there is usually a friendly boaty to compare war stories with.

I’m stuck on the Ripples burger but I switch chicken breast for beef. Not a problem for this cafe. It’s casual, local, and has that marina vibe. Lots of people hanging out chattering at the wooden out door benches, drinking beer, wine and if the...More
