  • The Food Truck at The Camp

    The Camp Food Truck is a regular hangout for locals and visitors alike, so come Gather at The Camp for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We have an array of dining options available, including our popular ‘Camp Pizza Night’ held every Sunday night from 5pm to 8pm.

  • The Hāwea Kitchen

    Venture up the stairs above our store to find a nod to the past, a reflection of our now, a menu of local produce transformed into delicious plates, each with a taste of home in every bite.

  • The Hāwea Store

    A local grocer like the good ol’ days, we’ve got everything you need and lots of things you want. Where possible, our shelves are lined with organic and spray-free fruit and veg, a selection of locally butchered meat and baked bread, crammed sandwiches, meaty pies, everyday basics and special treats – whether that’s a fine Otago Pinot Noir, box of Speights or a scoop of hokey pokey (that’s really a double scoop).
