Fodor's Expert Review The Hardware Cafe

$$$ Greater Auckland Eclectic

Don't let the name fool you—this Titirangi fixture does everything: coffee, excellent breakfasts and evening meals. The Thai-style chicken curry is a consistent favorite as is the bread and dips selection. It was set up in an old hardware shop and is a firm favorite not only with the Titirangi locals, but also the many surfers who pass through on their way to the West Coast beaches. From time to time, it even hosts music gigs. The Hardware is where you are likely to be seated next to a famous artist, a politician, mountain bikers getting a caffeine injection after riding the hard Waitakere Hills, or hard-out surfer types boasting about the waves they caught while having "an early" (morning surf) before heading to work in the city. It is really busy on the weekends.
