Alberta’s opens early in the mornings which is a great idea as – what with the great weather n’all – Mapua Wharf always has a sprinkling of dog walkers, cyclists, amblers and general wanderers. Stop in here for a terrific coffee (Rabbit Island Coffee Co. roasts) and one of their treats made fresh on the premises. Someone in the kitchen out back is a skilled and creative baker as they offer excellent scones and muffins plus an interesting range of raw goodies (the chocolate mint slice is quite something – and completely raw ingredients).
Time and thought has gone into this stylish little café which makes for a chilled experience and interesting food options. Lounge outside on the Adirorndack chairs or conduct a top-level business meeting at the big wooden tables shaded by funky yello brollies.
