Cafe Encounter

Kaikoura is home of Dolphin Encounter and at their headquarters you will find Cafe Encounter, a gorgeous cafe and eatery by the sea. Outside seating to soak up the views while you eat locally sourced food and sample locally produced wines. There's space for the kids, too. Make time to stay because you'll want to linger. But if you rush you must, be sure to use your own cup.
