Fodor's Review

Provenance is important at The Shack, a buzzing corner café that is truly local and consistently good. Surfers—who come for great local espresso and organic, free-range food—cram the couches and Formica tables beneath walls decorated with surfboards and Raglan Beach scenes. The menu is huge and the meals hearty, starting with breakfast at 8. All-day dishes hail from around the globe: Mexican-style fish tortillas or Thai salad, for example. The dinner menu (Thursday through Saturday only) changes with the seasons, and plates are designed for sharing. There's also a great selection of beers, wines, loose-leaf teas, smoothies, and juices (local and organic, of course).
