Great coffee and wine selection, amazing pizza and pasta and very friendly service! The decor is so pretty and everything is well presented, they also have Wi-Fi so you can Instagram all of it too!

Cuckoo serves up yummy stoned baked pizzas that you can enjoy in the sunny courtyard or porch of this vintage townhouse. Named after native birds, the pizzas have some not so typical tasty toppings like artichoke, sage roasted pumpkin, lamb chorizo and smoked fish. They also have a great range of Wairarapa wines to go with a slice or two.
