Takapunians set sail for the Hello Sailor Cafe, where chic meets cosy in the sweetest way.

And the doughnuts are true treasures, with flavours like raspberry cream cheese, custard, and salted caramel that’ll have you heading back for more.
Delicate and chewy, with a crisp exterior, Macarons are, to many, the pièce de résistance of French patisseries, and we’re lucky to have our local macaron magicians, Le Macaron, here in Takapuna.
Sporting over a dozen fabulous flavours, including “Fatcarons” in cherry, black sesame, lemon & passionfruit, and the bestselling Crème Brulée Fatcaron. Bon appétit Le Macaron!
