The Havelock North dining scene continues to trend positively, fuelled recently by its latest addition, St Martha. Already popular with locals, St Martha has become a one-stop shop for brunch, catering and also events, at its stylish and comfortable home in the heart of the village. 

The sophisticated black and white exterior of St Martha gives way to plenty of light brown and white tones indoors, tiles and dried flower arrangements, all of which make for an aesthetic and welcoming dining space. The team at St Martha pride themselves on customer experiences and on showcasing the best of garden-fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. The food also happens to be exquisitely presented, no doubt testing the temptation in everyone. 

There are different menus for breakfast, lunch and, of course, for weekend brunching, along with a fully-fledged drinks menu. From eggs, crepes (both sweet and savoury), burrata and pork belly, the menu is designed with everybody in mind and caters to all diets and appetites. Not to mention the delightful array of ever-changing goodies in the cabinet up front, including sandwiches, salads and delicious sweet treats. 

Also operating as a caterer, St Martha can provide for bespoke events of all sizes - everything from corporate lunch box deliveries to lavish birthday parties! And if you’re in need of a venue after 4pm, St Martha can be all yours. It is licensed, so if a steaming cup of coffee or freshly made smoothie doesn’t hit the mark, there is also beer, wine and a selection of spirits and house cocktails to choose from - all day, every day.
