Father Rabbit is proud to have a store nested in the beautiful waterside suburb of Ōrākei Bay. The area is filled with wonderful eateries, boutique stores and stunning views across the basin. Our community in this area is a great one you'll want to explore when you visit our store.
Our store is located in Ōrākei Bay Village, a small shopping community including gift stores, eateries and a Farro supermarket. The ambiance here is always great, particularly on a sunny weekend with walkers enjoying the sun and popping in to grab a fresh loaf from Farro, coffee from Ampersand and even ticking off a quick gift purchase or new wardrobe piece from us at Father Rabbit or our neighbour's A&C Homestore. This light filled, open plan space invites your pooch inside too so no one misses out on the break on your Sunday walk!
If you aren't in walking distance to the area, Ōrākei Bay Village has plenty of parking both at the front and back entrance. On a nice day it is also a lovely idea to park your car nearby and go for a walk along the boardwalk. Why not treat yourself to a coffee first to take along with you. This has stunning views of the water and leaves you in the best mood!
Our store features a generous offering of our range across homewares and fashion and has our most expansive offering of baby clothing, books and toys out of our four stores.
A fabulous spot for long lunches or dinners, Ampersand eatery has a large and open space in Ōrākei Bay Village that is a delight to dine at. Their menu is delicious. Their truffle fries with fresh parmesan are a total must! We also love the goat’s cheese tortellini with cherry tomatoes, butternut, amaretti & sage from their lunch menu. If you don't have time for a lunch, simply stop in to get your coffee fix whilst you browse the other stores.
A few stops down from Father Rabbit you will stumble upon the always beautiful A&C Home store. Decked out with gorgeous homewares and furniture, we are sure you'll find something you love for your space! We also share the BLOC shopping district with Alex and Corban and in the past have teamed up with them for their fabulous sample sales at their Birkenhead store!
Grocery shopping is a treat when you're doing it at Farro! They offer the best and most delicious across all departments and have cabinet and deli food you can have on the go. Our in store team never have a lack of options for lunch with all our great surrounding food outlets. If you are hosting a gathering or even just after some treats for yourself for the weekend, Farro has everything and more you could ever want for a platter or delicious home cooked meal. Farro also have the best gifts for your foodie friends, from deluxe chocolates and treats to all the leaders in seasonings and condiments.
If you're after a more relaxed afternoon sharing drinks and nibbles with friends, pop over to Brother's Beer for a comfortable and chill environment. They team up with Juke Joint for mouth watering pub style snacks that will keep you full and satisfied. As the name suggests, these neighbours specialise in beer and offer tasting trays so you can sample an array of brews. Sounds like the perfect Sunday afternoon to us!
For all the sweet teeth out there Ōrākei Bay Village is home to Auckland leaders in the cookie game, Moustache. The perfect quick treat to fufil that craving, or if you're after a bigger dose they also do jaw-dropping cookie cakes. Mouth-watering!
BOWL & ARROW
To balance out all the chocolate and cookie sweetness, pop over to Bowl and Arrow for a nutrient packed smoothie or smoothie bowl. The best healthy breakfast to start the day that still tastes like a treat!
Silky Otter is a great addition to the village that redefines the cinema experience. Smaller than your usual cinema, they have luxury recliners and fabulous drinks and food so you can truly relax and indulge.
