Hilltop Cafe in Akaroa, Christchurch, New Zealand | Cafe

Welcome to the Hilltop Cafe, Akaroa, New Zealand. When visitors come to New Zealand they are usually looking for the scenic splendour for which New Zealand is famous ~ the sort of beauty they have seen in Lord of the Rings. Few places offer more of this magnificence than the Banks Peninsula, and in particular the area around Akaroa. And nowhere in the area enjoys a finer view of this spendour than the Hilltop Cafe & Bar, perched high atop the rim of the volcano, overlooking the harbour.

As the New York Times put it, "From the time you reach the breathtaking setting of the Hilltop Cafe & Bar, a country pub worth a visit, overlooking Akaroa and the harbor, you'll be seduced by this dramatic volcanic landscape."

Located halfway between Christchurch and Akaroa, overlooking Akaroa Harbour, the Hilltop is a great stopping off point for coffee, a light snack or a full meal. Everything from our deli fare, baked fresh each day, to ourInternational a la carte menu, items are appetizing and scrumptious, offering a taste of New Zealand with the Hilltop flair.

With winter now upon us, step inside the warm and cozy Hilltop Cafe to enjoy a tasty meal or a relaxing drink while enjoying one of the finest views in New Zealand from our huge picture windows.

Our wine list encompasses the best New Zealand wines, including the award winning Kaituna Valley range, sourced from a local winery located just down the hill. Fresh C4 coffee, roasted in Christchurch, Monteith's and Speights on tap and a wide range of beers and spirits offer something for everyone.

A stopping-off point for travelers for over a hundred years, the Hilltop Cafe is a Canterbury institution not to be missed, recently renovated, but still steeped in history. Just a short and scenic 45 minute drive from Christchurch, and 5 minutes up the hill from Little River, the Hilltop Cafe is the perfect place to enjoy the staggering beauty of New Zealand and the bountiful food and wine the country offers.
