Swingers Cafe Opens at Waitemata Golf Club

A new community cafe celebrated its opening in Devonport on Saturday 22nd September. Housed at Waitemata Golf Club, the amusingly named Swingers Cafe - purely a golfing reference we are assured - offered half price coffees and bacon butties to golfers, passing walkers and local residents who came along for a hot drink and food fix on the day of its launch. The local family behind the cafe - Tony Powell and Bryony Barker and their three children - have enlisted well-known Shore barista and fellow Devonport local Mat Berlandier to serve up excellent locally roasted, organic Chiasso coffee. Bulging sandwiches, piping hot pies and delicious raw food slices add to Swingers Cafe's offerings. Pop in and say hi seven days a week from 6.30am to 2.30pm.
