If you're one of the many Kiwis counting down the days until you can get to your Coromandel bach, we've got some news that will make the prospect even sweeter.

Delicious mico-bakery Rüdi's Bakehouse is popping up on the Whangamatā waterfront over summer, serving up artisanal sourdough breads, sweet and savoury viennoiserie and top-notch Eighthirty coffee all summer long.

Cooking a hearty post-surf breakfast for the crew? Grab a few loaves of the signature sourdough loaf — it comes in original, seeded or a range of flavour combos (think fig and walnut, aged cheddar and smoked paprika, kumara and flaxseed, and more). Or if you're enjoying a morning beachfront walk, finish it off the right way with one of the team's cinnamon swirl croissants or a twice-baked almond croissant. Just make sure to get down there early — Rüdi's pop-up last summer in the Whangamata Cinema building saw daily queues and sell-outs.

The new cute-as-a-button truck will come complete with ample outdoor seating so you can stop and take in the beach surroundings — or just grab your pastries and go. Open at the Whangamata Marina at 621 Beach Road, Rüdi's Bakehouse will be open 8.30am-1.30pm each day from Saturday, December 17 until the end of April.
