A corner on Devonport's main street is a good place to people-watch and rest after exploring, and Manuka is a relaxed spot with wooden tables and stacks of newspapers and magazines. Weekend brunch is hectic when the locals turn out, but tables turn over quickly. Wood-fired pizzas are available all day, with toppings ranging from classic pepperoni to smoked chicken, Brie, and roasted cashews. You can also nibble on a delicious salad or slice into a meaty offering such as
venison with blueberry-and-onion marmalade. It's consistent and well-priced.
