ever so friendly proprietor, great coffee, and a wonderful selection of art, photos, books and crafts. Spent a good hour here hearing the history of the building- and of the family who owns it. Bought a fanastic book here about New Zealand Art Deco.

This beautiful art deco coffee and gift shop is easily missed! Transformed by the owner from a dentist surgery to a coffee and gift shop. Friendly service from the owner who inherited from her dentist father! Lovely coffee.
