Fodor's Expert Review Bird on a Pear

$$ Stewart Island Modern New Zealand

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Situated right in the thick of things on Halfmoon Bay Wharf, this popular café above the ferry terminal positively bustles from early morning into the afternoon with an eclectic mix of locals and visitors. An impressive menu includes breakfast treats, local seafood (try the divine Oyster soup), huge salads, and yummy cakes and muffins, all made on-site by owner/operator Jo Leask. Grab a window seat and watch the boats load and unload or spot little blue penguins darting beneath the clear waters below as you sip a tipple from the fully licensed bar. Evening meals are available weekends from December through March.
