The Chai Tea House is one of the best kept secrets in the heart of Coromandel town - a warm and friendly licensed vegetarian cafe with a magical ambience that may just keep you there enjoying the fine coffee or teas and delicious home made meals and cakes for much longer than you originally intended. You will also find fresh pressed juices, fresh fruit smoothies, organic chai lattes or you could be wild and try the famous home-brewed Kombucha Health Tonic. The Chai Tea House has home-baked organic bread, organic loose-leaf teas and great Kokako organic coffee. Enjoy our freshly baked gourmet cakes and scones, falafel wraps, paninis and a great range of toasted sandwiches, tasty quiches and salads. For keeping in contact we do have great unlimited free Wi-Fi. Allow yourself enough time to check out the collection of Kevin Richard's stunning photographs showcasing Coromandel's unique beauty or drop in for one of our live concerts. Discover the peace of our back garden courtyard with a sand box for the children or sink into one of our comfy chairs out on the street. Get ready for a treat. We look forward to welcoming you!
