Welcome to Dawn til Dusk Café & Licensed Restaurant

Dawn til Dusk is proudly owned by Linda and Murray Rumbles – two well-known Te Awamutu locals who’ll tell you Te Awamutu is the best place in the world to bring up kids, to live and to run a family-focussed business like Dawn til Dusk.

Dawn til Dusk opened its doors for the first time in 2007. This was a very exciting day for Linda as she’d always wanted to honour her mum’s memory (the café is named after Linda’s mum – Dawn) by showcasing her fabulous recipes – culinary delights that Linda grew up on.

Today, Dawn til Dusk employs 12 staff – who’re also proud Te Awamutu locals – and is right behind many local community organisation initiatives. Murray has been refereeing school boy rugby for years and Linda is right behind the Te Awamutu Girl Guides.

Holders of Gold Cards receive a 10% discount simply by showing their cards so remember - if you've got one of these in your pocket / wallet show it when you're at the till to get your 10% saving !

Linda, Murray and the team at Dawn til Dusk worked hard to get “Off the Peg” food safety registration – the only eatery in town to have achieved this highest possible food safety standard. Off the Peg registration means that Dawn til Dusk is audited annually and this visit by Department of Health officials is scheduled (as opposed to impromptu visits that other eateries have to endure). The Department knows that all food preparation at Dawn til Dusk is undertaken in the safest possible way and patrons can rest assured everything is as it should be back in the kitchen.

Dawn til Dusk is open 7days - Mon,Tues 7am-5pm - Wed-Sun 7am til close The premises are fully licensed for adult enjoyment as well as providing kid-friendly meals for the littlies and the not-so-littlies.

And of course, you can like us at Facebook (where we love chatting!).

Community Organisations Supported

  • HaloBiz Community Fund

    The HaloBiz Community Fund serves multiple purposes:

    This fund is distributed on a regular basis equally among all registered community organisation members.

    Where businesses support many community organisations and don't wish to "favour" one, two or three over others, they can nominate the HaloBiz Community Fund as their benefitting community organisation knowing that the funds will benefit the greater community, because of how the funds are disbursed.

    Where a business wishes to anonymously or privately support a community organisation, we'll link those businesses to this fund. In these cases, the funds are forwarded to the privately nominated community organisation either in the business's name or anonymously, as requested by each business.
