The Tahi Café is a social hub for the Tahi team, the local community and holidaymakers alike during the summer.

Tahi Cafe will not be opening for the 2021/2022 summer season 

We are extremely disappointed to announce that due to Covid complications and staffing shortages, the Café and Sunday Walks will not be open this summer. We look forward to the 2022/2023 season when we hope things have returned to normal. Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year – stay safe and happy holidays everyone.

Situated on site and usually open annually from the end of December until the first week of Feb each summer (NOT OPEN THIS SUMMER), it has a blackboard menu of delicious breakfast and lunch dishes, freshly baked muffins and scones, together with great Peoples coffee and Kohu Road ice cream. There is ample parking and we also stock a small range of grocery items during the summer period.

Tahi Café is an ideal start and finish point for our self-guided walks. They are ordinarily open to the public on Sunday’s only throughout summer NOT OPEN THIS SUMMER (guests staying in the Tahi accommodation cottages are welcome to walk at any time). The walks range from a short stroll through the plant nursery area and around a restored wetland, to a more challenging two-hour hike that takes you through the stunning native forest on the lower slopes of the property.

Maps detailing the walks are available free of charge but a donation from walkers is greatly appreciated as all proceeds go directly to supporting the Tahi conservation project. All visitors wanting to do the walks are required to sign in and out at the Tahi Café.

We look forward to open for the 2022/2023 season and let you come explore Tahi, and reward your physical efforts with a leisurely lunch or brunch at Tahi Café.
