Hygge is a Danish word meaning the essence of what is good in life. Happiness, enjoyment, and comfort are encompassed by the term and our team will work to bring this to your event. Let us take care of the details while you enjoy the moment with your family or friends. Experience a wonderful atmosphere at any time of year. Through the winter months be welcomed into the warmth. The spacious café feels cosy with two roaring fires. When the weather warms up, we open our doors so your party can flow into our beautiful outside area. Soak up the sun or sit in the shade of the olive trees. Enjoy the glistening sea, birdsong, and a lovely sea breeze.
During our usual business hours, we cater for groups of all sizes. The option of a divided off area is available for groups of 30 to 50 guests. Private function hire is available for evening events. Hire charge and a minimum food and beverage spend applies.
We offer a range of menu options, from buffet to a la carte. Please see attached menus for details. We are happy to discuss the available options and help you to decide on the right menu for your occasion. Each menu offers delicious food brought to you by our experienced kitchen team, led by head chef Bruce Dawkins.
Hygge is fully licensed and our drinks list celebrates local. We serve a selection of wines, beer, craft beer, and cider, focusing on Hawke’s Bay’s wonderful offerings. We can discuss your requirements to ensure we are well stocked according to your preferences. If you have something inmind which we do not usually offer, please ask and we will quote a price
