Enjoy a cup of coffee and a bite to eat before an event, or grab something on your way out of your swim or gym session.

The Arena Cafē is open seven days a week, 7.30am – 4.30pm. We're just on your right as you come through the Te Rauparaha Arena entrance. 

All food is made fresh daily.  Pick up something quick from the cabinets – a filled croissant,  hot pie, scone or sweet treat to have with your tea, coffee, smoothie, juice or milkshake. For something quenching, we also sell iceblocks.  

For a more substantial breakfast, lunch or post work-out refuel, we have a blackboard menu with the full range of breakfast options, our signature salad, burgers, or you can build your own toastie. We cater for vegetarians and vegans – just ask if you've got allergies or dietary requirements. 

Kids' menu

We know all about refueling little tummies and you can most definitely have everything "on the side". Kids faves include:

  • ham & cheese toasted sandwich
  • chicken nuggets & chips
  • fish bites & chips
  • mini hotdogs & chips
  • scones & mufins
  • fluffies
  • hot chocolate
  • juices.

Our relaxed atmosphere is perfect for the kids, and our outdoor courtyard with picnic tables is popular when the weather is right. We have highchairs available if you need them. 

Catering your event

If you're booking the Aquatic Centre or one of our event venues, the cafē can provide delicious catering.
