Operating out of an iconic boat shed down on Frank Kitts park, Tuatua is a small cafe/deli/takeaway.
Operating out of an iconic boat shed down on Frank Kitts park, Tuatua is a small cafe/deli/takeaway. Commanding the most beautiful view in all of Wellington: straight out to sea.
You'll find Coffee and counter snacks, plus nachos and some fabulous burgers, like the venison burger with tamarillo chutney. Food is lovingly prepared on the premises by the small and friendly team of Simon, Melissa, and Gitana.
With a heavy focus on sustainability, Tuatua have achieved 8 badges from Conscious Consumers:
BYO Cup, Composting, Eco-Friendly, Eco-Packaging, Fairtrade, Free Range, Organic, Recycling.
TuaTua uses Celsius coffee and at the end of each day, the team take the coffee grounds home with any other food scraps to turn into compost which they then use to grow more veges!
As often as possible, ingredients are brought into Tuatua on the bike trailer which is attached to owner Simon's bike. They use locally produced ingredients; free range eggs and bacon; and choose to sell organic drinks only.
On sunny days come and enjoy watching the people skate by, from tables outside the cafe.
