Every business here is ProActive about their role in halting throwaway culture by welcoming UYO = Use Your Own.


So, this is a cafe guide, but perhaps more than that, it is testimony that the hospitality industry is prepared to move away from single use serviceware. The next step? Request legislative support from our Government! Head to Takeaway Throwaways to level the playing field!

Cafe of the Day

Located in the Marama Arcade off Heuheu St. We offer amazing sweet and savoury food that we make in our Cakery around the corner. We still use real butter and cream. Along with our awesome food we also make Laffare Coffee and Tea Total Teas. And have a range of cold drinks bottle in glass where possible.

Quick shout out to the humble and inspirational Simon of Tuatua Cafe, whose love for his city, for coffee, for his world, made this little snowball grow and grow. And to the countless foodies and instagram humans of Aotearoa for their constant support.
