The home of Morris & James is a haven away from the stresses of everyday life. The relaxed ambience and sense of timeless beauty welcomes you as you pass under the gatehouse into the Courtyard. Prepare to catch your breath as the showroom beckons you into a pure visual spectacle of layer upon layer of design and colour from matt black to luscious red. Situated in the heart of Matakana Coast Wine Country, just 45 minutes north of Auckland it is the ideal combination of gourmet and retail therapy.
Enjoy a coffee, a drink or a meal in the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful courtyard garden setting of The Pottery Cafe.
We are fully licensed and open daily from 9am to 4pm, serving freshly-made breakfasts, Allpress coffee, cakes and lunch, and on Friday and Saturday evenings in summer we open from 5.30pm for drinks and dinner.
Our chefs take pride in using the best local produce, including our popular fish straight off the boats at Leigh, to produce good, unpretentious dishes to suit every budget and taste.
All our food is made on the premises, from home-made cakes and slices to sauces, stocks and mayonnaise. Our standard menu changes with the seasons, and there are ever-changing daily specials, plus a special menu for children.
From our popular soups and sandwiches to a three-course lunch or summer supper with well-chosen wines, The Pottery Cafe offers something for everyone. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are always available, and group bookings are welcome.
We look forward to welcoming you to this very special spot.
