Waimangu Local Store & Cafe

A cosy, unique and family friendly spot with awesome views across the Waimangu Volcanic Valley. Entry is free for the Waimangu Local Store & Café (not including access to Waimangu Volcanic Valley).


We serve a selection of hot and cold breakfast or brunch options, including everyone's favourite Eggs Bene, and waffles for those looking for a sweet start to the day. The coffee is as good as ever, and even available in an edible cup!

For lunch, we have a selection of hearty meals, or fresh on the menu are our home-style pizzas. Choose from a 12 inch or settle in to share a half metre pizza with friends. Perfect with a bottle of Volcanic Hills wine for a lazy afternoon natter. 

Don't worry, we still have all your classic kiwi favourites in the cabinet, and some perfect picnic options if you're heading into the valley. Take a look at our "build your own sandwiches" if posh nosh with an epic view tickles your fancy!
