Okere Falls Store

Cafe in Rotorua Lakes

Okere Falls, 20km northeast of Rotorua, is a rafting town, so it's not just the fridge full of craft beers that's chilled out here. The food at this store with a beer garden ranges from kimchi-and-cheese toasted sandwiches to vegan kick-start breakfasts. Eat out on the raffish balcony with views over the Kaituna River.

It also hosts regular live music and a beer festival in October.
