Winning hearts and tastebuds from their early days at the Little Big Markets, dedicated followers of Spongedrop Bakery have now followed them to the iconic building that used to be the Mount Maunganui Information Centre, near Pilot Bay and right on the edge of a park.

In 2014, Pacifica Home, Garden Store & Cafe was taken over by four sisters who had fond memories of going to Pacifica for special treats when they were young girls. Combining their creative talents they have created a beautiful place where you can enjoy a date with your preschooler.
Kids can order food from the kids menu and eat it outside at picnic tables or on the grass in the sunshine. While you browse the beautiful homewares or garden centre, your little one can enjoy playing on the lovely shaded playground and get acquainted with the much-loved four chickens: Fab-a-chick-boom, Kentucky, Gingernut and Mildred!
