The Original Ben Gusto
 

"Drawing from the italian “buon gusto” meaning “good taste" comes Ben Gusto. A blend of good taste, eclectic style and the beach thrown in for good measure. No better way to sip your flat white, catch up on the news & soak in the laid back beachside."

Established in 2008, Ben Gusto Cafe has been a local icon. This relaxed, ambient space is warm, inviting, casual and producing quality meals at a reasonable price. Situated on Browns Bay Beach, over looking Rangitoto Island, Ben Gusto is perfectly situated to enjoy breakfast or lunch with friends and family. 

As a venue we can accommodate  groups of all sizes for any occasion, be it that Special Birthday, Graduation, Business Breakfast meetings, Mothers & Fathers day – or just an excuse to get together. Depending on the the time of day and size of group, there are multiple options available.

A hit with mums & bubs, coffee groups find the playground by the beach a great way to burn out those waffles & gelato.

Treat yourself to a wide range of menu options from the expected to the unexpected! Couple this with exceptional service and a wonderfully relaxing beach and you have an experience to remember.
