Loving Life At Vines

⚡️The VVC has been nominated for The People's Choice Award in the 2018 Hospitality New Zealand Awards for Excellence! ⚡️Just a 12 minute drive from central Blenheim, the Vines Village Cafe is set amongst the expansive grounds and lakeside gardens, surrounded by vineyards and Marlborough's world famous cellar doors. Let the kids play in the outdoor playground or run free around the fully contained grounds while you relax in the shade with a fresh coffee or glass of wine. They can host your wedding too!

Le Chat Noir

Crêpes and cakes, and brunches and lunches. Catering and events. Or just pop in for a coffee. Beautiful things to eat in Greerton, Tauranga. 



A Friend For Life

The UYOC mission is to encourage cafes and customers to remove single-use disposable cups from our café/coffee culture. We do this by connecting customers with responsible cafes who welcome them to Use Their Own Cups. Simple ❤️ And we give stuff away ❤️ Check our instagram to see what's going on right now. 


Courtyard Cafe & Delicatessen

Best of both worlds at this local's favourite in Paeroa - Keep cups for sale, but a mug library so you can borrow and bring back if you forget yours, or choose to be a part of the reuse community. We love the mug library. No. 8 wire style!


58% of commercial food waste comes from our plates! So, if we have more food than we can manage, don't embarrased to take it home - have it for lunch tomorrow, or compost it, or feed it to your chooks, or a neighbours. Order less, waste less. Easy.

Thrilled to bits...

...to be amongst the finalists of this year's Keep New Zealand Beautiful awards! So, keep New Zealand beautiful hey - use your own cup, refuse the straw, refill your own water, ditch plastic bags for ever. It's our back yard. Magic. 

Frank and Albie's
