V.W. CAFE AND GALLERY

Coffee Drip

Enjoy some coffee

Our beginning

When Pou Whakaaro was looking at ways to support people who were interested in running their own micro business, an unused commercial kitchen was a serious asset.

What evolved is a great community cafe and gallery where a number of people run micro businesses producing food and coffee for sale.

What we do

The café strengthens employment opportunities for those involved, as they are gaining real skills, such as barista, kitchen and cleaning skills, as well as customer service and cash handling.

The community café and gallery is open every weekday to the general public from 8.30am to 2.00pm. 

There are jams, pickles, coffee, soups and sandwiches , and then there's our spectacular sausage rolls, which are the best in town. 

We are really proud of all those who are taking part – and pretty happy with the coffee and the food too!

Our stories

The Our Stories are collection of personal stories about gaining work experience, employment, and independence through the V.W. cafe.

The café is currently being run by Gordon, Thomas and Debbie.

Debbie has been making some delicious biscuits & food for sale in the cafe. Her Peanut Brownies are something special.

Gordon and Thomas are our fantastic Barista's who create beverages of all kinds, along with tasty sandwiches, pies and other divine food treats and don't forget our famous Sausage Rolls

We have recently developed our new logo for the cafe and are also working on a new paint design .

We have had a few changes in the decor and outside courtyard area and are really pleased with how it looks.

We still have a few things to carry on with but we hope you enjoy our efforts.

We are also very please to announce that Michael is producing his ZEST jams, jellies and condiments again. These are for sale in the cafe.
