Kelly's Cafe

Enjoy a bite to eat at our cafe with ocean views!

Kelly's Cafe is a great place to relax while your little one explores Auckland's best kids play area Shipwreck Shores or experiences an animal encounter with a starfish in our interactive Rock Pool.

Our cafe also boasts one of New Zealand's most unique ocean views - seeing Hauraki Gulf from above and below the water. 

Kelly's café serves a range of fresh food, including:

  • Kids meals
  • Hot pies
  • Toasted sandwiches
  • Wraps and fresh rolls
  • Tasty muffins and scones
  • Healthy snacks
  • + much more!

ORGANIC FAIR TRADE COFFEE
Our coffee is made from fair trade, organic, and locally roasted coffee beans here in Auckland. Each coffee we make is freshly ground from beans for every cup. Remember to bring your own cup to get a discount!

COFFEE DISCOUNTS
We've partnered with a range of programs to offer our customers discounted rates when bringing in their own cup for refreshments. This means that the otherwise disposable cups are staying out of the rubbish. Anyone who brings in their own cup can purchase a $3 coffee! For peace of mind, our disposable coffee cups are Paper BioCups, produced from sustainably sourced paper from managed plantations with a bioplastic lining made from plants, not oil.

Family Facilities

Everything you need for a perfect family day out.

We want you and your family to have the best visit possible, so we have all the facilities on-site you need to look after your children during your visit to Sea Life Kelly Tarlton's. There are changing facilities located throughout the building, in men's and women's toilets, a chill-out space next to our playground which provides a more private space for breastfeeding if required. Also, we know that sometimes kids do wander. Our team are well trained to help lost children and their carers and will have you reunited in a flash!
