337 Newell Rd, Hamilton, New Zealand, 3283

Serves meat, vegan options available. A local cafe/farm/shop located in Tamahere, Waikato, and is made up of three interconnected parts: The Strawberry Farm (where you can pick your own strawberries), The Country Providore (a shop that stocks gifts and a range of organic treats, including many vegetarian and vegan options), and Punnet Cafe which uses local organic ingredients, including those from the strawberry farm. The menu changes every three months, but always contains clearly labeled multiple vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, nut free, refined sugar free and dairy free items. Also has a range of cabinet sweets and slices which include multiple vegan, gluten free, raw and no refined sugar options. Open Mon-Fri 8:00am-3:30pm, Sat-Sun 8:00am-4:00pm. Open all public holidays except Christmas Day.

Great food - Edit

Nice cafe with lots of vege and vegan options. Menu changes frequently and every time I’ve been the food has been great. Can get busy at weekends so worth booking a table.

Good vegan options in too popular restaurant - Edit

We, three vegans, went for lunch here today after making a (highly recommended) reservation. There were some good vegan options, my husband and son shared the vegan calamari and I had the celebratory strawberry salad, excellent food, but a bit pricy. A minus point was the low staff to client ratio: we had to wait long for ordering, receiving the food and even had to spent 15 minutes in a line to pay. The staff seemed to consider all these long waits as normal.

Many (and excellent) vegan choices - Edit

Went there for brunch with a group of vegan friends, and we tried I think all their vegan brunch options. They have plenty of them, and the chef is a vegan!

We had:
- scrambled tofu on sourdough toast with pesto & micro greens
- cauliflower and chickpea fritters with hummus, Indian eggplant kasundi, coconut yogurt raita, grilled lemon, roasted baby vine tomato and almond feta
- "huevos rancheros" vegan version - corn tortillas, refried black beans and many nice fresh toppings

Everything was delicious. And they also have really wonderful sounding lunch options.

The place is really nice, although quite busy (especially on weekends I guess). Next door you can buy some gourmet vegan staples and organic fruit and veg.

Coming back!

Pros: Excellent vegan options, Nice place, friendly staff

Cons: A bit far from Hamilton/ difficult access by bike
