The new iteration of Vista on Oriental Parade (Lola Stays) has groovy contemporary decor (love the flamingos!), a breezy fresh feel on days when the bifods are right open, and the best cheese scone I’ve had in a long, long time.
They also do tasty classic dishes with kiwi or contemporary twists (smashed avo on rye with goat cheese), interesting cocktails (The Pink Flamingo, The Talulah, The Wolf Gan Jack with Lewis Road chocolate liqueur), NZ wines and local Havana coffee.
We did find it quite noisy on a heaving long weekend Saturday (lots of flat surfaces as well as lots of people), so go between peak times for a quiet coffee, or with a bunch of friends for a grand old catch up.

Open 7am til late, 7 days
