While it is a go-to for coastal locals, family-run ten27 just may be Ferrymead’s best keep secret for those unfamiliar with the area. Bringing upmarket cafe fare, craft beer, New Zealand wines and live music performances to the area, ten27 is a refreshing departure from the big box strip malls of Ferry Road. It's polished, sophisticated feel is complimented by the beautiful furniture and homeware store, Casual and Country, with which it shares both premises and ownership.

The airy, pristine interior is championed by the stunning exterior - architecturally designed by Greg Young in a post earthquake rebuild on the same site which has housed Casual and Country for 27 years and the cafe for 17. Owned by Jenny, John and their son, Ben, the Ferry Rd destination stocks Garage Project, Cassels & Sons and Three Boys craft beers.

A charcoal bun beef burger and truffle polenta soldiers with avocado are menu heroes, along with the descriptively named John’s Mum’s Fudge which sits pride of place amongst other cabinet food and sweet treats. Seating for up to 100 people makes ten27 a great venue choice, and provides excellent peace of mind that there will be a spot available for your brunch, lunch or dinner requirements.

Also housing two courtyards; one is dog friendly and the other may be the cosiest outdoor fireplace setup you ever encounter.
