Ginja Cafe


We all have that one item in our wardrobe that we can always rely on – dress it up or down, wear it to work or on a night out. It can be anything you need to be. But what does this have to do with Ginja Café at the Omaha Golf Club, you ask? Well, this waterside café is the sort of establishment that quite literally fits any occasion.The 160-seat café has a huge indoor dining area which is light and bright, but also has a large fireplace for chilly days. And the sunny deck has unrivalled views over the pristine estuary, palm gardens and tennis courts. Parents can tuck into a hearty lunch while their little ones have fun on the grass; cyclists can rest their bikes and sip a juice, and business folk can use free the WiFi to catch up on emails and meet clients for coffee or a salad. There’s a full takeaway menu seven days a week. And Ginja Café is always happy to host any private function you can dream up. Ginja’s menu is packed with classics, as well as a few bespoke creations, and has a kid’s menu to boot. Fresh seafood, burgers, pasta, steak, chicken, soups, salads and more. Highly experienced chef Jacqui Brown (the bubbly red-head the café is named after) recommends the homemade beef burger with chunky fries for the hungry and the signature salt and pepper squid for something a little lighter. “We use as much local produce as possible and are always tapping in to what our patrons want,” says Jacqui. She’s already begun experimenting with some new treats: High Tea was served on Saturday August 20, with plans to make this a monthly indulgence. She’s been writing up menus for degustation dinners, too, and will utilise the amazing wines in the area for matching. In fact, pretty much every component of Ginja Café fits perfectly into what the café strives to be: a prime culinary destination for locals. So whether you need a post-stroll coffee, or a spot to wine and dine in style, pop into Ginja for great food, delicious drinks and relaxed waterside ambience. | FB: Ginja Café & Restaurant | T: 09-422 7551 ext 2 Open 7 days from 7.30am – Dinner Tuesday to Saturday Omaha Golf Club | 1 North West Anchorage, Omaha
