Eating Out In Punakaiki
Wild Coast Cafe
This is the most popular cafe and is where the Intercity buses pull up to view the pancake rocks. It does offer indoor/outdoor seating and the Pancakes with cream and fruit salad are a must!
This is the only place to purchase groceries, ice cream and liquor.
Hours 8 am to sunset seven days a week.
Welcomes you and your family to enjoy friendly comfortable indoor/outdoor bar and dining facilities. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, bar snacks, seven days. Off licence.
1km north of the Pancake Rocks.
P O Box 52
The Bay House
This little gem is located on the beach at Tauranga Bay, half an hour north of Punakaiki. You can watch the surfers all day long, they have an exquisite menu and wine list, fantastic coffee and friendly service. We thoroughly recommend the trip worthwhile for a bit of decadence, and down the opposite end of the beach is a seal colony worth checking out.
