Greta Point Cafe

For coffee and cake on a windy Waitangi Day walk, Greta Point cafe hit the mark nicely.

Greta point sliceThe baking is very appealing here. A savoury muffin was commented as light and tasty, as was the tan slice (considering those types of slices can often have the density of small windowless buildings) with a good sugar/butter balance (and minus the crust inhaled immediately on delivery!). Yum.

The breakfast we saw come out looked worthy, and I was plotting from the time I arrived about when I could come back of an afternoon to try out the delicious looking carrot cake (also looked light and fluffy).

Online reviews seem to have a theme about beware asking for swaps on meals as you’ll be charged extra, but otherwise support the food quality. And we found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming.

The views are very pleasant out Greta point viewover the water and airport, and on a nice (ergo non-windy!) day I imagine sitting at the outside tables soaking up the sun would be very pleasant indeed.

Coffee was by Mojo and the faces recognised behind the coffee machine and in the kitchen were from earlier Neo days.

So if you’re around this way, worth a stop.
