Bringing you


The Cafe Cart at River Haven is the perfect hub for the community to come together. Our beautiful grounds, set alongside the spectacular Motueka River, are designed to encourage meetings of every size.

Whether its a business meeting or socialising with friends and neighbours beneath the fruit trees or maybe you’re just seeking a moment of tranquility in our olive grove we want you to enjoy every moment of your personal River Haven experience.

Remember if you’re a River Haven Club member you enjoy discounts at the Cafe Cart, Clubhouse Restaurant and the Store.



Whenever possible the Cafe Cart provides local products made with local ingredients. Our aim is to showcase the very best of our region and offer the widest possible range at competitive prices. We also partner with like-minded ethical suppliers which is why we only offer coffee produced by the fantastic team at Sublime Coffee Roasters in Nelson.

Not only is our coffee winning new friends we also provide a wide range of teas and juices and undoubtedly the finest slices, toasties and sausage rolls in the region.

Food & Coffee was so good!

Called for lunch while out on our motorcycles 3 weeks ago, the food and coffee was so good I took a group of friends for lunch on Sunday. Thanks for the great service and food. Had a coffee from the cart this time.
