Specials & new twists on old favourites provide an abundance of choice...

Colenso is licensed and serves Atomic coffee and a variety of T-leaf teas.
So you can stop in for morning or afternoon tea, or linger a little longer over lunch with a glass of wine or local craft beer.

Colenso’s chef Emily Thomas is indulging her passion for fresh local and seasonal produce and relishes working alongside Colenso's experienced staff who offer a warm and excellent service. Cakes, tarts and quiches are baked fresh and changing menu boards with Emily’s Specials - light lunches, platters, soups and seasonal healthy salads offer an abundance of choice. Many of the old favourites remain and have been given new life with the new chef's little touches. The fresh garnishes come from the cafe’s own gardens.

Enjoy the country garden cafe setting with summer dining under our plum trees and surrounded by our mandarin orchard. Alternatively, relax inside with local artists art on display.
