A Review

...of George from @gemzjemz

"Now that I’m back home in Tauranga for the break I get to go back to all my favourite cafes here! I have been going to George Atomanu for years now but it’s funny because it was only this year that I found out their “meat” sandwiches weren’t actually made from real meat 😂 although I’m not vegan I love to try vegan food! And their sandwiches always blow me away 😍 I couldn’t decide between their pulled pork Cuban sandwich or their chicken avocado sandwich, so of course I got both 😂 I asked to have the Cuban toasted and oh my it was delish 😋 the “pulled pork” was made from jackfruit and they use a vegan cheese (which is why it didn’t melt but still tasted great) with pickles, which I don’t normally like but definitely complimented this sandwich 👌🏼 then I had the chicken sandwich fresh because that’s just how I wanted to eat it. And wow I can’t believe it wasn’t real chicken. So creamy and paired perfectly with the fresh crisp lettuce and avooooo 😍 this cafe has always been one of my favs so if you’re ever in Tauranga I highly recommend 🙌🏼❤️ they also do non vegan options on their menu like eggs which I can confirm are delish 👌🏼 so there will definitely be something there to cater for everyone 😊"

From The Gram

This monument is a letter to the future. It describes what we lost: the Okjokull glacier - and how we lost it: human-caused climate change. ~ "Ok is the first Icelandic glacier to lose its status as a glacier. In the next 200 years all our glaciers are expected to follow the same path. This monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening and what needs to be done. Only you know if we did it."⁠ ~ Thanks to @whywaste.nz for the share

"Can definitely say one of the best brunches I’ve ever had 🙌🏽 I’m always a sucker for halloumi 😋"

From The Gram

A challenge from our instasista @ethicallykate ⭐ ~ "If you walked into a cafe and forgot your cup, would you be mad if the cafe had NO takeaway cups??- not a rhetorical question. I’ve been watching as cafes come up with awesome mug libraries, free jars, and reusable cup systems... but so many are too scared to stop serving single use cups altogether. What if we, the hot-drink-drinkers, smiled and told them it’s okay? ☕️ When you next grab a coffee, I CHALLENGE YOU to #cutthecupand tell the cafe you wouldn’t mind if they did too 👏"


Kelly Tarlton's in Auckland is a regular stop for visitors, locals, school trips and birthday parties. They have a café - and what we love about these guys is that they are keen to refill your water flasks, rather than sell you another single use plastic water bottle - protecting our oceans and avoiding landfill. Nice work Kelly's.
