Since 2007 Garnet Station has been run by two women passionate about the environment, who live onsite with a huge back garden.
Garnet Station make their own fabulous food (apart from the sticky brioche!). They also offer organic ice cream, gourmet mince and cheese pies, and interesting beverages in addition to their coffee, like pots of organic herbal loose leaf tea, or a cool Elderflower Sparkle drink.
Right from the start, these cafe owners pressed their coffee provider for fairtrade organic beans & cups that were biodegradable. Garnet Station is committed to only serving organic milk. All food waste is composted & worm farmed on site in the big backyard.
Garnet Station is local community cafe with a large following who enjoy picking up new info about what’s going on in their community or even joining in debate about the latest news, as they await for their lovingly prepared coffee.
Garnet Station has also achieved 8 badges for its sustainable business practices, from ConsciousConsumers.org.nz

(small con: not the cafe’s fault, but bothers me that one of the waiters smokes and I’m financing it)
What a perfect cafe! There’s nothing to criticise at all! The coffee and sweets which I tried were super yummy, the service was amazing, and the interior design is just superb! It’s like someone lets you into their lovingly furnished and decorated home. You can sit outside, in the front by the busy counter, on a couch in the living room or in the library room. How awesome is that? And they even have wifi which they offer right away if they see you on the computer. Of course I also love their use of organics as much as they can and their interest in sustainability.
