Orokonui Ecosanctuary





Horopito Cafe

Open Thursday to Monday, 9:30am to 3:30pm.

Horopito Café provides a thoughtful dining experience for visitors, staff, and the wider communityReflecting the broader values of the ecosanctuary, the café seeks to bridge the gap between conservation practise and our modern lifestyles. Horopito Cafe strives to lead by example: in our everyday operations, we minimises packaging, compost organic waste, use UV treated rainwater, recycle wastewater, and have solar heated hot water. We are committed to sourcing and serving local produce reflective of regenerative practice, and we are committed to creating opportunities for collaboration and innovation with the wider community. By constantly questioning how we can do better, we hope to inspire others to do better too! 


The café also caters for groups of up to 120 for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and other functions. Contact Head Chef and Cafe Manager, Louise Evans, for all your catering needs on louise@orokonui.nz
