Great little gallery and espresso bar. Best flat white I have had on the West Coast :) An extra bonus was the home baked goodies!! The Caramel Oat Slice is heaven, as are the little bliss balls. Whilst waiting for my coffee, there is so much cool stuff to look at! Amazing photos & gift ideas! Recommend anyone visiting Westport... More

Came here 6 months ago, and thought fondly and often of the coffee... Couldn't wait to come back and have some more. A few nice words across the counter, and some interesting pieces on the wall. Will come back again soon.

This coffee shop is way more than just an excellent coffee shot. The variety of gifts and art works is so worth a look. True Kiwi NZ originals. Small and large in size and budget. Worth a trip to see. Westport is not to be missed.

They only have takeaway coffees etc. . Brilliant flat white made perfectly. If you need a good caffeine fix you will not be disappointed.

Very tasty coffee available here, and beautiful modern Kiwiana art for viewing and buying. It is small so there is a good bit of shuffling round to get past people but that isn't a bad thing really, just makes it more intimate. I love how the full height of the tall walls are used for displaying pictures. Some staff are... More

Whanake is your best bet for a well made coffee in Westport! Stopped in last week, the place was humming. Service was friendly, and you know the coffee must be good when all the locals are lined up out the door. The art on the walls is gorgeous, and the best part is the range of different styles/sizes on offer... More
