A great stop en route from Waimarama beach to the airport. Great coffee,sweet and savoury offerings in this busy " locals "cafe. Plenty of parking means its easy to stop and enjoy this ambient cafe. Buy freshly ground coffee and any equipment you may need to enhance the flavour and quality of coffee made at home.

Each time we visit Havelock North on our bikes we always choose Hawthorne's as we have worked up an appetite for their tasty treats. The staff are friendly and attentive and it is lovely sitting outside. The savoury brioche and pain au raisin (sort of) were delicious as were our coffees. It was a bonus to fill up our water...
