Patumahoe’s The Butcher’s Shop Café has been named the Best Regional Town Auckland region winner in the 2018 Meadow Fresh New Zealand Café of the Year awards announced today, 20 December 2017.
The judging team’s comments included, “I can’t wait to go back to this very quaint and inviting café! It looks like something from Europe with an old black bike complete with flower filled basket leaning outside, a striped awning and pretty flower pots. I felt like a friend arriving, not just a customer.
The service was ’rural friendly’ and attentive. The standout for this café are the portion sizes – huge in fact! And last but not least, the menu promotes it is all home baking using free-range eggs.”
For the sixth year running, the Meadow Fresh New Zealand Café of the Year Awards highlight the diverse, the delicious and the most delightful of our great NZ café culture, shining a light on outstanding cafés across the nation.Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
