Red House Cafe, Te Horo Choc mint slice is devine, but I recommend sharing it with at least one other! Loved what they did with the toppings on the wedges.
Long Beach Good beers
The Clareville Bakery Ideal rest stop when traveling through Wairarapa
Main Street Deli & Cafe The Tagine Burger with Za'atar wedges is scrumilicious!!!
Waterfront Bar & Kitchen Very nice food and wine. Friendly service. An enjoyable evebing .
Raumati Social Club The thick shakes are awesome. And the Oaty Caramel Slice is made with real caramel; not that tooth melting stuff. Delicious.
