The Gathering/Te Huinga at Waimanako is safe space where:

-Excellent Barista Coffee and Kai for Koha is available

-Listening Ears are there for you

-A range of Workshops and Support Groups happen

-If things have gone to custard, and you are concerned for your well-being, or that of someone else - consider coming in. It might just be the right place to share what's happening with a caring community of people, who are focused on wrapping support around you; hearing the story; and working together on solutions.

Here's the BEST news.

We have been growing our Team, and, during April, we will be OPEN UNTIL 9pm, every day (except Sundays) to meet the need.

Because the wheels don't always come off between 9 and 5.

Once we're through the Omicron wave, we will be back to serving our legendary crepes, all-day-breakfast, toasties, real-fruit ice cream, muffins and cookies for mornings and lunch.

For afternoons and evenings, we will be offering a snacks (like... egg and hot chips... YUM) - a brilliant range of non-alcoholic beverages... AND: Coffee with a FANTASTIC range of delicious desserts.
