Modern, beautifully and fully licensed, Karaka Cafe by the Whairepo Lagoon is a must do for locals and visitors.
Karaka Café is a beautiful, modern, fully licensed 100-seater café, and summer bar open 7 days a week. Brought to life by the summer sun and fresh ocean sea, they boast the tastes and aromas of traditional New Zealand cuisine.
From modern style Hāngi and Eggs Benedict with their signature smoked hāngi hash brown, to Eggs Pacific with corned beef – this is all part and parcel of the Karaka experience.
Whether you’re looking for casual dining for breakfast or lunch, or a delicious selection of platters and drinks for those fabulous summer afternoons and early evenings – Karaka Café is where it's at. Enjoy the ambience of our beautiful indoor environment or the outside bistro dining or relax on the terraced grassed areas on Whairepo Lagoon.
We are an iconic piece of Wellington’s waterfront. Come and dine with us and live the 'Karaka Experience' with us!
