Hygge is a Danish word meaning the essence of what is good in life - warmth, happiness, enjoyment, comfort, peace - the loving acceptance and enjoyment of the moment. Previously known as the Clifton Cafe, just outside of Hastings, Havelock North and Napier, Hygge at Clifton Bay is focused on making the most of the beautiful landscape in the Hawkes Bay and the rustic setting, creating delicious food and exceptional service.
