Come Home to Cambridge, whether you're looking for a quick snack on the run or wanting to spend an evening with friends over dinner.

Cambridge has more than 20 cafes, catering for everyone from the passing traveller in need of a coffee break to locals who want somewhere suitable for a leisurely chat.

Everyone has their favourite and part of the fun of living in Cambridge is checking them out.

Cambridge has more than a dozen restaurants, offering diners plenty of choice.

You'll find restaurants that specialise in ethnic food (including Thai, Chinese and Indian), those that cater for family-style meals and some that offer silver service and fine dining.

If you fancy a drink - and something to eat with it - Cambridge offers a number of pubs and bars to choose from. They include the town's original hotel, the Masonic Hotel, the Clubhouse Sports Bar (at Cambridge Raceway), the Prince Albert (English-style pub), the Five Stags (Leamington), the Group One Turf Bar (for racing and sports fans) and the Stables (which has live entertainment).

There are a number of caterers who can assist with your event or function providing finger food or sit down menus.

Cambridge has about 20 different takeaway food outlets, providing every sort of fast meal you'd expect to find in a modern town.

The town has national franchises such as KFC, Pizza Hut, Subway and Domino's Pizza, as well as many local operators who can serve you everything from a roast meal to a kebab.

About half a dozen compete for the reputation for being Cambridge's best fish and chip shop - the only way to know is to try them - and you can easily order takeaway Chinese, Indian, Mexican or Thai food.

As Cambridge is in one of the best food-producing regions of New Zealand, we're used to getting fresh produce and seeing it sent to other parts of the country.

You can sample local produce at the weekly Farmers Market at Victoria Square on Saturday mornings, monthly markets at Tamahere or at Twilight Farmers Markets on Thursdays at Te Awamutu during periods of New Zealand Daylight Saving.

The lush soils of the Waikato, and an ideal climate, mean local growers can produce some of the best crops to sell throughout New Zealand, including sweetcorn, strawberries, blueberries, avocados and more.

We shouldn't forget either that our happy cows make millions of litres of milk a year that go to the Fonterra factories for making into dairy products sold throughout the world.

The town has three major supermarkets, Countdown, Fresh Choice and New World, and enough specialty shops to ensure our residents don't go without a thing.

What's more, Cambridge has many beautiful spots inside the town or within a short drive where we can enjoy our food and drink as part of a leisurely picnic.
