Nestled in the heart of Feilding, Manawatu, New Zealand, Essence Café & Bar is a culinary haven that transcends the ordinary. As an acclaimed establishment, Essence offers a tantalising array of breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert options, catering to every palate.

Embark on a gastronomic journey with delectable starters such as succulent mussels paired with house-made focaccia, or Fritti di Verdure – tempura-battered seasonal vegetables served with aioli. The sweet and sour pork, accompanied by a petite salad, is a must-try, as is the irresistible cheesy garlic bread made with house-baked ciabatta smothered in garlic butter and cheese.

Main courses showcase culinary artistry, inviting diners to savour a symphony of flavours. From market fish paired with chips, salad, tartar sauce and ketchup to Asian-style pork belly, Essence caters to diverse palates. Hearty plates of chicken or beef schnitzel and lamb shank partnered with Middle Eastern-style rice and seasonal vegetables offer a satisfying feast.

Essence extends its warm embrace to children and those with dietary needs, ensuring every guest enjoys a memorable dining experience.
