Helena Bay Hill Cafe

1392 Old Russell Road,
Northland 0184
New Zealand

Friends recommended a visit to the Gallery & Café Helena Bay Hill on our way towards the Bay of Islands and as we drove past and spied the view, we decided to give it a go. We were greeted in the car park by two huge friendly dogs.

The cafe deck area was light and airy and made the most of the surrounding trees and plants as well as the view.

The menu was fairly brief, but had more on it than the snippet below.

We both ended up choosing the seafood chowder, which was packed with fish and decent sized mussels, and was topped with a prawn. The lemon gave the soup some extra zing and worked really well. We ended up having a couple more chowders over our stay, but this one was the best.

The spectacular views and great soup made for a good stop, we had a little wait for our food, as a largish group had arrived not long before us, but that wasn't too much of a problem, and the service was friendly.
