Post Office
“One of the central sections in the Beach Haven shopping area was the site of the old Post Office. The Post Office was demolished a number of years ago in a fire. With the support of the Kaipatiki Local Board, Auckland Council's parks department purchased the site to turn it into a park and garden for the local community.”

Establishment
“Great typical Kiwi bakery for cheap inexpensive (but tasty) food for lunch. Grab something from here then eat it in the nearby park or at home. Things you could try: A mince (beef) & cheese pie (These are very popular in NZ), a sausage roll or lasagna topper, a sandwich, a chicken or ham roll, or something sweet like a lollie cake slice, caramel slice, apple slice, or perhaps a simple lamington.”
