Top store recommendations from locals

Café
“Lunchtime is busy almost every day, but there are more seats available at the back. The small garden setting is there and allowed to smoke. Most cabinet foods are always great and soup of the day will be a fabulous choice in winter. (I couldn't find any better soup in this area yet :) There are varieties of brunch menu as well. The choice is yours. Try!”

“The Opunake Four Square is closest supermarket to The Nest. Strangely, Opunake has two Four Squares only 100 meters apart on the same street! The Northern Four Square has a greater selection of products so we recommend starting here.”
