Simon and I stumbled across this awesome place on Saturday and we are very excited about it as I totally love the style of the place, they make yummy milkshakes with their super ice cream and it is in our ’hood - it is only a couple of minutes away from our place –win!
We had been in New Lynn (Auckland, NZ) as we had to stop in at the AA to organise a new drivers licence for me after some disgusting child at school stole my wallet on Friday afternoon (side story: AA’s motto is ‘Keeping New Zealander’s moving’ – I was waiting in the line to get to the counter for over an hour and the line wasn’t even 5 meters long!) and were heading to our local library as that was another one of the cards I needed to replace, when Simon saw this ‘Kohu Road’ sign so we decided to stop and check the place out.
I’m glad we stopped; the place is awesome and it totally brightened my day. Walking through the door I was unaware I was going to be greeted by such an awesome cafe. As I’ve said, I really like the style of the place; they have a vintage shop till perched on the counter – which looks like an old garage bench or made from scaffolding. There is an old vintage car and caravan for kids to play in and they can put on DVD’s inside the caravan to keep them entertained. I liked the beer crate and bottles that were used as vases when you walked in. Also, by the entrance they have their inspiration board for the place on display which I thought was a cool touch. As well as being a cafe this place is also the Kohu Road ice cream factory :)
Simon and I had milkshakes made from their ice cream and some cake. We will be popping back in here another day to try out their lunch offerings :)
