You are welcome to visit our Kitchen Shop in person (at Springfield, Te Horo, see Contacts page for address and map). The shop is a cook's treasure trove for great gifts and virtually everything in the shop is used in our own commercial catering kitchen, so we know they are practical and will stand up to hard usage.

You can enjoy Caffe L'affare espresso coffee and cake in our Garden Room and browse our Garden Shop, both located next to the Kitchen Shop.

Coffee $4.00, Cake $3.50, or have both for $6.00. Coffee service available until 4.00pm.
