It took us a little while to try Whanake coffee but now it's all we drink! Every. Single. Day.! My coffee machine is gathering dust! They are open each day (thank goodness) and their hours suit morning and afternoon coffee, tea, hot chocolate or whatever your cup of choice may be, drinkers! Whanake lattes are the best I have ever... More

A nice place in Westport with great coffee. The pictures in the Cafe are all selfmade by the owner and illustrate the surrounding area with it's stunning nature and amazing surf.

A good place to stop for coffee if you are in a hurry - cute little art gallery as well! They have a small selection of slices - the oat caramel is highly recommended!

These ladies made me a wonderful triple shot hot takeaway coffee. We had stayed in Westport for 1 x nite & returned the following morning for another. Their coffee was consistently excellent. Friendly staff with good local customers. Was a great start to the day-best coffee I had on the West Coast. thank you

Probably the best coffee in town however it is really only for takeaway trade, very little seating. Small range of food, just about all sweet stuff.

Came expecting decent coffee, got a cup of warm insipid milk beverage that may or may not have had some actual coffee in it - as it's all takeaway, we were back in the car and driving before we realized how bad it was

This is a great little takeaway coffee bar with lovely baking and a must visit gallery. We bought a beautiful picture of a Tui and enjoyed the best coffee in Westport, which certainly lifted our spirits on a wet West coast day.

Popped in for an early morning coffee before we ventured out to the seal colony. What a neat place to pick up a takeaway coffee!!! Really enjoyed browsing around all the art and nifty things while waiting for coffee to be made and of course most important THE COFFEE WAS GREAT
