Welcome to Off The Track

Off The Track - Havelock North Restaurant & Licensed Café - is the perfect retreat for a casual meal, a drink with friends or a delicious coffee. We offer a wide range of dishes to suit all tastes and budgets – including our ever popular breakfast menustarters and snacks for smaller appetites and a just for kids menu. We love to use fresh, local produce, including herbs from our own garden, and showcase the boutique producers of beer, wine and coffee that Hawke’s Bay is known for.

We’re a family-friendly Hastings restaurant with a fantastic outside playground, and we’re business-friendly as well – hosting several business and networking groups. At Off The Track there is a place for everyone.

You will find us neatly tucked halfway between Hastings and Havelock North, sitting on an acre of land with sweeping views of Te Mata Peak. Whether you dine in or sit outside on one of our fabulous sheltered decks, the view will simply take your breath away. Come and join us and enjoy our Cafe & Restaurant Havelock North style.
