Coffee and cuisine lovers can have two shots at grabbing an espresso and fine food at Puke Ariki. An award-winning Taranaki business is running the two available café spaces - Arborio and Taranaki Daily News Café.
Arborio is a cutting-edge, Italian-influenced café by day and licensed restaurant by night. Found next to the museum entrance, Arborio has combined inspired design features and spectacular views to create an urban dining experience. Each table looks out on to the wild Tasman Sea, the Coastal Walkway and Len Lye's wavering Wind Wand.
Bursting with contemporary flavours, this stylish café offers a-la-carte breakfast, lunch and dinner alongside all-day snacks and a children's menu. Open from 9am until late, seven days a week, Arborio also serves Taranaki's best beans - New Plymouth-roasted Ozone Coffee.
This unique central-city site caters for after-work drinks, a relaxing coffee break with a cake, or a night of fine dining. Customers can meet inside, or relax in an alfresco setting on the deck.
This is also a perfect time-out space for people on the go. So, no matter what the occasion - watching the waves with a wine or brunching with buddies - Arborio at Puke Ariki is ‘the place where everyone wants to be’.
In the library, newspaper readers can mix current affairs with cappuccinos. Taranaki Daily News Café is a modern espresso bar that provides a unique environment to drink freshly roasted Ozone coffee and find out about the world.
Here, you can sit down with the Taranaki Daily News, a glossy magazine or your favourite book and enjoy an invigorating beverage, plus a delicious bite to eat. A simple array of unique cabinet food is also available at the café.
So, relax within this fantastic venue or grab a takeaway coffee and find a comfortable chair elsewhere in Puke Ariki.
