The view is amazing, looking right to the end of Takapuna Beach out to Rangitoto Island and the beautiful Waitemata Harbour. The service at Takapuna Beach Cafe is amazing as is the coffee. The menu has something for everyone. Lovely staff.

The cafe is in a perfect location with beautiful view across Takapuna beach. It has a good atmosphere with helpful and friendly staff and is dog friendly. However I found the food fairly average and quite expensive.
