The food here is always beautifully presented and very tasty. It is so nice sitting there by the beach. Unfortunately it is very expensive. Regardless, I enjoy going here occasionally 😊
We visit the beach regularly so am quite familiar with this place. Takapuna Beach Cafe has a great location and sea view. There's plenty of outdoor seating so it's very convenient if you have a dog with you. They are always very busy in the weekends so be aware of the waiting times. Service is generally prompt and friendly. They are famous for their gelatos which has won a lot of prices. There are a lot of nice flavours, though a bit pricey. The coffees are not bad but they do ask if you want one shot or two, without stating the price. So I never know if you are charged more for two shots? The iced drinks are made with ice cream so they are nice, but on the more expensive side. The food though, are to be honest very over priced for what you get, especially when there are so many nice cafes in Takapuna. Overall this place is great to come for a takeaway gelato to walk on the beach, or sit down for a coffee with seaview (no competition for the view). But there are better options in Takapuna for food especially considering the price. Takapuna Beach Cafe is more like a restaurant than a cafe.
