Enjoy a cozy Winter’s meal…



At this time of year, when it is cold and wet, we tend to hibernate beside a warm fire at home. Not often venturing out to enjoy a beautiful meal at a cafe or restaurant.
But we are missing out on so much. Many of our local cafes and restaurants have a well heated, cozy atmosphere in winter. A place where you can enjoy the good company of friends and family, or to have a quiet romantic lunch or evening with your best friend (or bff).
Just imagine enjoying a quiet drink of your choice and being waited on by an attentive waiter.
Then your choice of meal being prepared by an expert chef or cook and brought to your table. Savour the time and enjoy the freedom of not having to cook, serve and clean up.
If this is what you would love to do for a change then make the decision and head out to one of Franklin’s great eateries – there are plenty to choose from.
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to food, whether it is breakfast or a quick lunch to take back to work, or stop off at a cafe while on the run. A long business brunch/lunch or lunch with friends, there is a place for everyone, from traditional fish and chip takeaways to bakeries, international flavours as fast food or elegant cafes and restaurants, our New Zealand style cafes and bars, or casual to classic restaurants, they are all available in Franklin.
Then there are the fast food chains, at least six in Pukekohe alone. And don’t forget the coffee!
There is so much variety to choose from and available at all hours, even from the side of the road at 5.30am.
New Zealand’s food culture has come of age over the past decade with the introduction of our Asian and European residents.
No longer are we a meat and three veg culture, thank goodness, we now enjoy a very cosmopolitan variety of food choices.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
