Sitting on a beautiful restored boat at the base of Oriental Bay, Boat Café is  an excellent place to enjoy great coffee or tea and eat delicious food while soaking up the views of our unique atmosphere.

Known over the road as 'Parade Cafe' we moved to the boat over 4 years ago,  re-branding to 'Boat Cafe' in early 2013. 

We carried with us - from over the road - our passion and commitment along with most of our staff, and we boldly created a vision for the future!

Aiming to become known for more than our Chocolate Cake & our Eggs Benedict, we went on the hunt for a Chef with a difference. Head Chef Neel Michael joined us in 2013, recruiting a team who now deliver a daytime Brunch Menu, a late afternoon and evening Harbour Lights Menu,  and - from 6 o'clock, 5 nights a week - our outstanding Dinner Menu.

We are fully licensed and proudly serve an excellent list of New Zealand wines and beers. We offer a huge range of boutique soft drinks and our house spirits are very well priced.

In addition we are committed to providing special menus for our Gluten Free friends and the little ones, with our Gluten Free  and Children's Daytime and Evening Menus.
