About

Groove Kitchen Espresso is a national award winning café and bar. Established in central city Napier in late 2008. Groove is set in an iconic art deco Californian bungalow built in 1935. The space incorporates private sunny courtyard seating, warm, cozy fires and a chilled lounging area. D.J. decks are set into the fully licensed bar and on selected nights the lights go down and the music goes up.

Groove is open 7 days and is available for prearranged early morning breakfasts and late night private parties and celebrations. With the municipal theater directly across the road Groove Kitchen is also open for selected preshow dinners and drinks.

Groove Kitchen has a tasty popular all day brunch menu and daily lunch specials, as well as an amazing fresh and vibrant cabinet selection created daily to eat in or takeaway. Catering is also available on or off site.

GKE is passionate about coffee with an international award winning barista with over 15 years roasting, training and barista coffee experience; it has an extensive coffee menu and a reputation for amazing and consistent coffee.

"A sophisticated cafe squeezed into an Old Spanish Mission–style house, where the turntable spins and the kitchen cranks out A1 brunch along with interesting wraps, baps, salads and killer coffee. With a bit of luck you'll be around for one of the occasional DJ gigs.” - Lonely Planet

  • "As new residents to Napier we've tried a number of cafes and this has been the stand out one for us so far. Excellent service from enthusiastic, welcoming and informative staff. We enjoyed the eggs benedict and their house special version served on a potato base."

  • "Sitting outside this lovely Art Deco building in the sunshine sipping away a perfectly well made hot chocolate is the perfect start to a day. The scrambled eggs on toast were delicious. Service is nice and so is the playlist. Definitely worth stopping by!"
