Our Story

As many of you know Janet & Ian moved out of the café in September 2019 and into their ‘BIG’ Black Food Truck. They commenced working the summer season 2019/20 at the local markets and some further afield. Their adventures took them to as far as Tutukaka, Ngunguru and Mangawahai. They also did a few one-offs like Artbeat, Whananaki, Mangawhai Gala Day and the Vegan expo, just to name a few.

Janet & Ian absolutely love working the Food Truck, where they still serve the amazing RUSH Organic, Fair Trade Coffee. RUSH is roasted just down the road on the outer limits of Mangawhai.

They are proud to say that RUSH has just won a Silver Medal in a worldwide competition. They already knew that it was a superb brew, but yet another accolade proves this. Many of their customers tell them it is the best coffee they have ever tasted….. and they agree too. Janet, the Barista/Owner has mastered the art of making the best coffee possible from the highest quality beans.

They continue to hand make all of their Artisan Gourmet Pies, Pizza and our hugely popular selection of Sourdough Breads. They use only top quality, fresh ingredients. All of their fillings and sauces are made by hand, from scratch by the highly skilled and qualified Chef/Owner Ian. Ian takes pride in producing top quality, handmade, flavoursome produce, which brings their customers back for more. There are no shortcuts here.
