The GFF Wednesday Review

Sip Kitchen 25 Apollo Drive & 12 Melrose Street, Rosedale, Auckland. If you have diet restrictions you will find it an ease to eat at Sip Kitchen.  They have raw treats, salads, mini pizzas, muffins, smoothies, amazing organic coffee! Whole food to keep you going. Clearly labeled, the owners are very knowledgeable and the space is warm and cosy. πŸŒΏ GFF Recommends:  A salad, a piece of banana bread and a flat white - almond milk.

What We Do...

...and why we do it are the same thing. Everything is connected. The UYO goal is to create a sense of shared responsibility between cafes and customers. We need to support each other in a vital mission to reduce single use waste. And while we're about it, we need to promote generousity and kindness in all things. This is what the world needs now. Kindness creates kindness and stewardship creates an increased quality of life for us all.
