Best brunch we've had in ages was at Silverspoon! Hash stack was so good, coffee was delish and my partner loved his supershake.

Sit back and enjoy ocean views while soaking up the eclectic decor at one of Petone’s coolest, and most popular, cafes. Get there early on the weekend to grab a spot, and to allow plenty of time for that second coffee from in-house roastery Good Fortune Coffee co.

In the heart of Petone on Jackson Street, pop in for a coffee and a bite to eat! Relax in a rustic, classic cafe indoors or outdoors and chill with the locals at Caffiend. Well known and always humming, this is the place to be. The kitchen closes at 3pm, but that doesn't stop you from having a locally roasted Karamu coffee and a slice of cake until 4pm while browsing the many magazines and newspapers.


Sweet Vanilla Kitchen has a great range of brunch food, plus great cabinet food... Also really good coffee, so this place is a favourite.
