Has a strong vegan and ethical focus and the products are largely vegan with a focus on small artisan NZ companies. Vegan specialties are lasagne, quinoa stuffed eggplants, chili with made-in-house tortilla chips, risotto, plus a range of vegan sweets and salads. Has an eclectic ethnic and vintage atmosphere mostly created using recycled reclaimed furnishings.

Vegan lasagne! - Edit

If you are on Waiheke this is the place to get your vegan fix. Their lasange is incredible, also close second is their stuffed eggplant in joint place with their chilli (all vegan). They also have a few vegan salads and sweet treats. Awesome coffee and have a range of plant mylks. Go visit them!

Don't delay go there now! - Edit

I would give this place 5 stars if it weren't for the restrictions on Non-Veg establishments.
Okay so I had the chilli (which is incredible) with cracker type things (that come with it). Then there were the various desserts..
The chilli is a must have and so is the award winning lemon meringue thingy. Soooo yummy and we'll worth the trip to Weihiki. Seriously! Go and eat all the vegan goodness that they have to offer!
Oh and they have Hot Chocolate without the milk solids in the powder (rare find in Auckland).

They also stock various frozen faux meats (garden etc), refrigerated cheeses (angel cheese and bio cheese) and a few other bits and pieces (gummies, dandies marsh mellows, twilight bars etc.).

Pros: Lots and lots of vegan options Wonderful place Wel

Cons: Not completely vegan

Vegan Chilli - Edit

I went there for the vegan chilli. I came back for the vegan chilli. I came back AGAIN for the vegan chilli. Oh, and I'm looking forward to going there for my next vegan chilli.

Did I mention that Timbuktu do a good vegan chilli? I haven't tried anything else, but I can tell you this: the vegan chilli is worth going for.

Mmmmm. Vegan chilli.

Pros: Vegan chilli, More vegan chilli, Even more vegan chilli

Cons: Went there too late one day. No vegan chilli left.

The Best Little Deli in Western Waiheke - Edit

I love people who give interesting names to things - its even better when interesting is matched by quality of service and goods provided. This place is Delicious with the big 'D'. Many visitors never get beyond Oneroa when visiting Waiheke but really you should jump on a bus, bike, hitch - whatever it takes to get you to Ostend. Timbuktu is on the main drag. I won't be doing you any favours introducing you to the vegan date caramel slice sprinkled with rose petals - you too will be come addicted like myself. Then there's the super generously portioned vegan lasagna and the scrummy stuffed vegan egg plant dish. Did I mention the chilli and the award winning "Vegan Structured Lemon Meringue Pie'. Very reasonably priced - big table out the back to sit around or takeaway. Run by a lovely group of people many whom are vegans themselves (I should add there are non vegan options as well as vegan deli items like the Bio and Angel Cheese range and a freezer full of vegan quick fixes for sale).

Pros: Generous servings, Reasonable pricing, Great service
