From the ‘mean-Maori-mean’ cuisine that Karaka has to offer, there are tunes unique to Aotearoa/New Zealand, playing in the background. Rain or shine, you can’t beat the scenery of the lagoon and waterfront as well as the plethora of people, from tourists to families and business people. It’s fair to say that Karaka Café is a comforting representation of New Zealand’s melting pot, under one roof. A cultural experience and one that is unique to Wellington.
Karaka Café also boasts some of the best Aotearoa cuisine and dishes known. From the classic and ever-so-popular Hāngi dish, to the Pacific Eggs Benedict with corned beef, these are tastes which are in fact hard to find in Wellington. Not only are they are a rarity but they’ll also be sure to keep you in good comfort food!
Karaka Café is proud to be home to the Tohu & Kono range. Tohu is the world’s first Māori-owned wine company. Karaka Café stocks both the Tohu and Kono selection, Tohu Pinot Gris, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay to the Rose. We’ve got a widespread collection that can cater
