The Whitehouse Café is a family run business that is based on good food and good service. 
It is situated just minutes from Whakatane on Thornton Road, in a charming traditional villa in a lovely semi-rural setting. There is seating inside the villa, on the sheltered deck area, or you can sit at one of tables outside in the garden area. There is a playground for the children to enjoy, a stage area, an outdoor fireplace and also a canopy-covered large table offering shelter from the sun.

The business is owned and run by Sharni and Janice Hendl. Sharni is the chef and she has worked on resort islands in Far North Queensland and Melbourne, Australia.

There is a great selection of cabinet food or you can order from the menu. The café is fully licensed and also available for private functions in the evening. This venue is perfect for weddings or other celebrations and we also do out-catering if you would like to have your function at your place.
