We have a large deck with spectacular views of the water, and we are very child friendly with the large children's park across the road!  We also welcome furry dog friends!

Our History
The Harbour House Cafe has a fascinating local history.  In 1947 it was moved to Whitianga from Opito Bay where it was a radar station during the war. Owners Angelina and Jarrad have now given it a new lease of life as a cafe. 

We are all about the customer having the best experience possible as coffee and food are our thing so we hope to see you soon!

We Had An Amazing Lunch
We had an amazing lunch at cafe today. Our 88 year old uncle was with us and he hasn't stopped raving about the "best ever" seafood chowder. He reckons it's the best he has ever had. He wants to drive back for breakfast except it's over an 1 hours drive. The other 3 meals were really good also. Would love your recipe.

Best Big Breakfast In Town!
Best big breakfast in town! Everything in the cabinet looked delectable with a mouth watering menu to boot, can't wait to return to sample more. The coffee was great and my partner thoroughly enjoyed her Macadamia nut salted caramel slice.

Everything Is Delicious
I often meet my friend here for coffee and something to eat. Everything is delicious but I had the most amazing vegetable and bacon chowder with garlric bread. I just didn't want it to end.
