In Oats We Trust...

Calling all cafes...Barista friendly, non dairy, and just five New Zealand ingredients: southern-grown oats, kiwi springwater, a drop of Canterbury rapeseed oil, a pinch of sea salt and calcium for healthy bones. Strictly no naaaasties. Congrats to @commongroundespresso for jumping in.

"I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!πŸ”₯ super cute cafe in an old firehouse with an amazing cabinet of sweets and savouries! and a really cool drinks menu that’s bigger and more unique than most with varying sizes from a little cupper to a big ol’ mug β˜•οΈ

we’ve got a latte, flat white, caramello cheesecake, and triple chocolate mousse cake and yes, it was as amazing as it sounds 🍰❀️ we fully had a sugar coma and took the rest of the day to recover πŸ˜‚"

...of No7 Balmac from @hygge.dunedin β€οΈβœŒοΈ

"It's a pleasure to see #7Balmac up and running again after the fire they suffered last year. The neighbourhood missed them! The refurbished space is cosy and homely, perfect for any occasion.

This afternoon I enjoyed a quick coffee and homemade Ginger Crunch, while sitting comfortably in one of their long booth seats. As the last of the afternoon light streamed through the large windows, the stresses of the day just melted away. A perfect afternoon treat after a busy day. If you need a coffee, but are time-poor, the new addition of a coffee window means you can order your daily hit without even stepping inside the restaurant! Perfect."
