Puff is our favorite cafe in Orewa. It is the place where the locals go. Its a little hard to find, tucked away in a little alley the lane behind Countdown (Unit H2, 17 Cammish Lane, Orewa, Auckland). It is only a tiny place but has the best coffee a good range of fresh food both sweet and savory. Be in quick to get their famous Puff filled with vanilla cream. The attention to detail is great and staff are amazing.
