Best cafes in New Zealand

14 Jan 2017

New Zealand's best cafes have been found through the 2017 Meadow Fresh New Zealand Café of the Year Awards.

A judging panel led by food and restaurant authority, Kerry Tyack, has selected what they deem to be the four best cafes in each of six regions of New Zealand.

A further round of judging will see national winners chosen from the regional winners.

"The team has been hugely impressed, proving café owners around the country know how to dish up a vast range of satisfying food, to accompany some of the best coffee in the world," Tyack said.

"It has been a real treat for the panel to see first-hand how truly dynamic the Kiwi café scene is throughout the nation."
