An insider’s guide to... Matakana
BEST COFFEE: Ringawera at Morris & James does an excellent flat white and really good pastries.
NOT TO BE MISSED:
Charlie’s Gelato, where you can enjoy one of 40 flavours of handcrafted gelato or sorbet out in the garden and vineyard.
BEST PEOPLE WATCHING: An outdoor table at Matakana Market Kitchen – it’s also good for duck watching. WHEN TO GO: While summer is best, there are things to enjoy all year round. On rainy days, catch a movie at the boutique Matakana Cinema.
