Ark Coffee is one of Takapuna’s most well-hidden secrets. We happened upon this treasure trove with a bit of luck, and have been sipping their caffeinated-gold religiously ever since. Look out for the old school shoe repairers and guitar shop on Lake Rd and follow the smell of freshly roasted coffee beans down the alley to Ark – you’ll be in for a treat.
All of Ark’s beans are ethically produced from a handful of exceptional growers, their baristas are second to none, and they roast all their beans on site. Pretty awesome if you’re a fresh coffee fiend. Grab a sweet treat to have with your cup of joe and chill out with Ark’s heartfelt coffee connoisseurs to truly enjoy Taka’s hidden coffee cove.
