The Piha Cafe

Built on the original site of the old Post Office, we tried to retain as much of its history as possible. Faced with challenges from the council, activists and an ever-dwindling budget we managed to roll up our sleeves and produce a raw, eclectic and local ‘environment’, displaying Piha’s ruggedness at its best, for the surfers, the people from far and wide, and of course, Piha.
