If you are en-route to Matakana and looking for a decent drop of coffee in tranquil surroundings, swing by Dragonfly Café and Gallery. The Café is located at 615 Matakana Rd, just around the corner from Ascension Vineyard.
Serving a tremendous array of cabinet and menu food, we enjoyed date and cheese and bacon scones as we relaxed in some spring sunshine. Dragonfly is child friendly with a playground and toys to keep the little ones entertained. The large outdoor seating area includes a waterfall that can be reached via a short walk. The café also hosts local artwork in the adjoining gallery.
