High Tide

Cafe in Oakura

Formerly a food caravan on Oakura Beach, High Tide grew so popular it moved to permanent digs. It's super-fresh cabinet-nosh-only here (try the smoked-salmon bagel or a French pastry), and the coffee is the best in town. Staff are all smiles while local artwork, indoor festoon lights and patterned cushions add a charming boho surf vibe.
