Beautiful cafe outside town frequented by locals. The coffee was excellent. The food was good. The device was friendly. It was memorable to sit outside under the trees on a 32 degree Celsius day!

Situated over the Shaky Bridge that crosses the Manuherikia River, Shaky Bridge Cafe is a relaxing 10 minute walk from the Alexandra I-Site and the central part of town. Follow the river track or walk along Tarbert St until you see the signs for the Shaky Bridge. If driving, follow Tarbert St to Little Valley Road where you will see our sign. Enjoy breakfast, bunch, lunch or platter other local products as you taste through several Shaky Bridge wines, from Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Rose and Riesling. Our Cafe style menu offers high quality food options and exceptional service. Visit our Cellar Door retail store to take your favourite wines home with you (cellar door only on appointment). Located directly under Alexandra's infamous 'Clock on the hill', Shaky Bridge Wines & Cafe is easy to find and well worth your walk!
