Wishing you a very warm welcome. At Deckchair we celebrate New Zealand café culture, products and producers in one of the Bay of Plenty’s most beautiful and popular holiday spots. Serving sole travellers, couples, families, and large groups every day we share our passion for fresh high quality food, fine local wine, and a breath-taking view with visitors from around the world and residents alike.
Deckchair is located across from the main beach on Marine Parade in Mount Maunganui, rated the best beach in the country by TripAdvisor 2018 Travellers’ Choice Awards, with its golden sands, patrolled beach, waves for experienced surfers, and rock pools for the littlies.
Walk around the corner to the iconic Mount hot pools, or for a beautiful walk around the base of Mount Maunganui (Mauao) or enjoy a 40 minute walk to the summit for stunning views. You can even bike in, park in the stands outside, join us and relax!
Dining is offered both inside and outside, serving traditional and modern New Zealand cuisine, a range of local beer, wine, cider and multi-award winning Hawthorne coffee, together with a warm friendly service.
We’re open 7 days a week until late afternoon for breakfast and lunch, and Thursdays to Sundays until 8 pm (peak holiday late nights, subject to demand) for snacks and light meals.
We’re renowned for our ‘famous in the Mount’ date scones and offer a full range of freshly prepared on-site cabinet food by our baker including cakes, slices, salads, sandwiches, quiches and pastries.
At Deckchair we continually strive to improve, our aim being for you to have a great experience while you are with us, and to serve the best selection of quality food and refreshing drinks to our customers in a relaxed and friendly environment. We look forward to seeing you.
Our favourite dish is your inner wellness bowl, either with the tofu or salmon. So fresh and looks amazing. You need to let more people know about this dish!
"Their muffins are full of flavour and goodness, they don’t skimp on the good stuff! The best muffins in the mount!"
"I love the staff at Deckchair, they’re really relaxed and genuinely friendly!"
"Deckchair is our favourite café for Sunday morning brunches, being close to the mount means we enjoy the scenery by walking up or around the mount then relax with a nice muffin and coffee with the kids."
Such a lovely place to sit, eat and people watch. We are from Texas and recently arrived on a cruise ship. We saw your cafe on Google and the map location pulled us there. A nice walk there and back along the harbor, then the ocean front. If you are on a cruise ship stroll down, excellent coffee and great hospitality. Thank you.
