Located in trendy Mt Eden district on NZ’s iconic Dominion Rd, Tuihana Cafe offers a fantastic atmosphere with a unique kiwi feel. Order from the mouth-watering menu or choose items from the daily cabinet of ‘hardout bits and bites.’ And for a little Tuihana hint… try our Tuihana fresh homemade relish, it’s amazing!
Free WiFi is available for smart phones and laptops, or if you wish to be more offline, relax in our sheltered outdoor area as the world rushes by.
Want to organise a meeting, but crave a specific treat or someone has a fussy tummy? No problems! Have a chat with Leslie and her staff, and they’ll whip up a storm, with a dash of good ol’ Kiwi can do.
Tuihana is also available for evening events and any catering needs. Plus now licensed for evening events!

We were only there for breakfast but will be heading back to to try the lunch menu.
Well worth a stop.
One of the best loyalty systems I’ve come across; state of the art. Custom developed and includes all purchases (drink AND food), and an awesome ordering process that allows you to email, SMS, or hello, send your orders in via Twitter.
Fom the cabinet, the scolls are awesome with a cup of coffee – the cheesymite is a winner in my book, though you can hardly go wrong with the other offerings – caramelised onion, ham & cheese, savoury… and then the sweet options are plentiful and delectable.
For a light lunch, the salmon quiche is a winner!
If you have more time to spare, the salt & pepper squid off the menu is amazing – the figs that are served alongside them are to die for. Leslie’s Rewana Bread is beautiful, and if you happen to be around on the final Friday of the month, don’t pass up the opportunity to sink your teeth into the beautiful Taniwha burger!
The staff are friendly, know me by name, and always take the time and care to share a friendly conversation.
Excellent top quality food with a large tempting menu.
Very nice surroundings.
Definitely have recommended to friends and family.
Well deserved Five Stars.
Awesome Staff, Awesome Coffee, Awesome Food, Awesome Environment..
Attention to detail, always friendly, fast service.
Now they’ve incorporated a brand new ordering system via email or SMS, I haven’t tried it myself but I’m sure the people who are ‘on the go’ can really appreciate this.
Thank god I only work upstairs.
Cant ask for more..
What a lovely light, clean, and funky cafe.
Very friendly helpful staff explained the food choices well.
The food highlight for me was the treat that I chose after my meal: a chocolate macciato truffle ball. Yum!!!
I was offered salt & pepper for my panini, and being a salt-addict lately, I would have been wise to take up the offer of sprinkling a bit more salt on the panini to make it even more to my liking. I do think it’s good that they give us customers a choice though – better to lean towards less seasoning than too much. And I think if the kumara was heated through just a tad more, the panini would have been ‘excellent’.
Very very handy was the free parking down the driveway… specially on a rainy day like today.
My 5 stars are for the excellent service from great staff, the quality of the food, the easy parking, and the very styley interior.
Original review: A really reliable cafe with good food and great coffee. Very friendly service in a fresh and stylish setting. At the moment the weekends seem to be quiet so there’s always plenty of space and very quick service.
Eggs poached perfectly and lovely bacon, although we would like a better choice of bread for toast. Lovely relish on the side. Really nice little carrot cakes also.
Oh and the “home made” relish we found out is not made on site. Lol
Update: the relish! You have to try the homemade relish! They’re not kidding… It’s like a symphony in my mouth! Yum.
I would highly recommend Tuihana cafe to anyone wanting a good meal, with great atmosphere and friendly service.
Ssssh don’t tell anyone but the marmite and cheese scones are delicious!!!
Update: Had lunch at Tuihana Cafe today, great service, great food and excellent coffee!! Up to its normal high standard.
The meals are generous in size and tasty as.
I also recommend the big Breakfast.
I will come back for more!!!!
The NZ whitebait omelette is to die for – cooked to perfection. I’m not a salad fan, but the vinaigrette on the side salad was so tasty, it ensured the salad did not go to waste
The coffee was prompt to the table, and also excellent. Nice to get a good Mojo coffee outside of Wellington. I’ll definitely be back for a weekend brunch one day soon!
The food is great and the service friendly and fast. Definitely a HUGE improvement on the Coffee Cup which used to be here.
Try the corn fritters – amazing!
