Cafe Eutopia


Within our trip up to the north island recently we stopped into Kaiwaka after having lunch with my parents to meet an old friend Liz aka the Mad Bush Farmer for coffee at this local gem named "Cafe Eutopia".

The building took 5 years to complete was originally hand crafted by by local residents Marijke and Robert, along with their sons and volunteers. 


The interior after we came through the entrance. You can see alot of the sculptured artwork.


Looks like they are usually very busy, mind you this was a very hot Spring day.



The outside of the building and into the courtyard. Not only do they serve coffee but also vegan, vegetarian and organic food. 


The old man, B waiting for our coffee to come out after we ordered it. Luckily we managed to find a table with an umbrella as it wasn't pleasant sitting in the hot sun.

That place looks amazing. I've bookmarked this for inspiration. I want to build all sorts of imaginative stuff into our place and this really inspires.

That place is a gem. So unique, I love it. And spacious. Seems like here most coffee places are tight. I like a little space around me.

I can not imagine a more beautiful cafe or restaurant with all the sculptural details.
