Marine Parade Eatery

Cafe in Paraparaumu

Affecting something of a Robinson Crusoe look, this fresh-as-a-daisy cafe offers a sophisticated international menu and terrific views of Kapiti Island out the front window. The seafood laksa (coconut noodle soup) is delicious and they also serve chia-seed porridge, bagels, pulled-lamb burgers, coconut-poached chicken and meze platters.
