Welcome to INSITU CAFE

Discover the freshness in every bite

INSITU Cafe is open seven days in Hillsborough, with an All Day Menu, tempting Cabinet treats, and High Tea every day between 2-3pm (High Teas for bookings of two or more people).


Choose from the All Day Menu which includes delicious meals prepared to order, all day Breakfasts, and tasty Soup of the Day. Or make the hard decision of which divine savoury or sweet treats to choose from our Cabinet; such as our legendary wraps, scones, brownies and pinwheels.

See INSITU Cafe customer favourites and mouth-watering Recipes, in our INSITU Blog.

Twice the hospitality!

INSITU is the sister café of Wetlands Eatery in Parklands (opposite Ōruapaeroa-Travis Wetland). The owner of both cafés – Jai, and both our teams, share the same drive for excellence in food, coffee and welcoming service.

INSITU Cafe is also mindful of customers’ dietary needs. For example, ask us about vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options, and non-dairy milk options.

‘I love this little cafe 💕 beautiful ambiance, lovely food …

A must visit and be careful because you’ll want to come back every day.

~ Bec Clark
