Beach Road Deli

Top choice Cafe

in Paekakariki

Stocked with home-baked goodies (chubby muffins, bagels, pastrami-stuffed baguettes), this bijou deli and wood-fired pizzeria is heaven-sent for the hungry highway traveller. The coffee's as good as it gets, made by happy staff whistling along to a jazzy soundtrack. Pizzas happen from noon on Fridays: order the slow-roasted pork version with apple, caramelised fennel and chilli.
