Let’s Talk Food and Drinks.

With a pretty solid selection of places to choose from, we’ve rounded up a few that tick all the boxes. Be sure to visit on your next camping trip of go out on your own food adventures and let us know what treasures you come back with.


Ussco Bar & Bistro

When it comes to “date night” this is our first choice every time. With warm hospitality and an atmosphere to match. The menu is modern and delicious using the best seasonal ingredients, not to mention their classic cocktails. Ps. Save room for dessert.



Zephyr Wainui

A very trendy spot with food as good as their conscience. This plant-based cafe/store is a complete vibe and one you won’t want to miss during your visit. Make sure to take a stroll down Wainui beach after your oat flat white and vegan pie.



Flagship Eatery

Tucked down a side street, this is our go-to for brekky. It’s a beautiful space to relax and enjoy a beautiful breakfast. The menu has all the classics with a few surprises too, we are sure you will be delighted overall.



Sunshine Brewery

You’ll probably catch us here having a craft beer paired with a very tasty pizza. It’s the local watering hole and home of “Gizzy Gold”. This award-winning brewery is not to be missed for a real local experience and thirst quenching session.



Okitu Store

Last but not least on this little list is a real post-surf favourite. This little dairy sits on prime real estate just opposite some pretty pumping surf breaks. Stop in for some hot chips (chicken salt a must) and a selection of pies to fill your hearts desire.
