Cafe Encounter

Kaikoura is home of Dolphin Encounter and at their headquarters you will find Cafe Encounter, a gorgeous cafe and eatery by the sea. Outside seating to soak up the views while you eat locally sourced food and sample locally produced wines. There's space for the kids, too. Make time to stay because you'll want to linger. But if you rush you must, be sure to use your own cup.

Jerry's Cherries Fairview Orchard, basking in Central Otago weather on the edge of Roxburgh. Pop in and top up on fruit, lunch, coffee and treats. Use your own cup if you want one for the road and they'll discount you. They'll fill your travel water flasks too, so no need to buy another PUMP bottle again!

Coffee Worx Rangiora

Congrats to the team at Coffee Worx, recent winners of the North Canterbury Business Excellence Award in Hospitality and Tourism! These guys roast on site, so the coffee is going to be good at Coffee Worx, Rangiora. It's a light space, room to roam, When you've filled up on espresso, smoothies, bagels of goodies, you can buy your beans bulk, and pick up some barista gear to take home. Perfect.
