History, charm, good food & glorious views

  • So what's for breakfast?

    An Arcadian breakfast gets away from the cholesterol laden "fry up". The accent is on vivid, fresh flavours using our own home grown fruits and vegetables as well as the best locally grown produce available: organic, spray free and free range whenever we can. We are very lucky in Northland to be able to find really great produce really local.  

    Kerikeri organic teas

    Our eggs come super-fresh every week, our yoghurt is organic and made by Mahoe Dairy near Kerikeri who have been Artisan Cheese Champions. We make our own toasted home-made muesli as well as jams and jellies using the grapefruit, lemons, limes, plums and feijoas in our garden. We also make our own chutneys, sauces and relishes. Our breads are mostly organic and we also offer organic teas and coffees sourced from Keri-Keri suppliers.

    Our cooked café style breakfast changes daily with the seasons. It could be: our Breakfast Tart with all features of an English breakfast, a corn hotcake stack with crispy bacon & crushed avocado, fresh asparagus and ham with grilled cheese on focaccia or Roasted Kumara Frittata with local smoked fish. Other creations might be Peter's Bacon Pancakes with Banana & Maple Syrup, or his reasonably famous fried egg sandwich with all the trimmings. We attempt to cater for all dietary requirements, so let us know when you book and we will do our utmost to assist

    Enjoyed on the deck overlooking the water, there's no better way to set you up for a full day out in the bay.
