Oodles of cool at Coolsville

I was out walking recently and tripped over Coolsville Trading Post at Hataitai. And what a groovy place!

Turns out to be part of the Bambuchi family, with most of the food coming out of the kitchen across the road (shows in the quality), and includes a good number of alternatives for those with dietary restrictions – healthy grab’n’go food, in compostable and recyclable containers.

Because I was on a long walk, I felt totally justified in having two dishes (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it), and thoroughly enjoyed both the kumara and egg nest, (nicely crisped in a toastie machine and not sogged in a microwave) and the salmon noodle salad. Along with my friends moose and bear at the table!

Both were fresh, flavourful and satisfying. And the coffee was also well made.

There’s both cabinet and menu options, with many of the dishes named after random people like Lisa and Bart Simpson, or people from the Bambuchi family like Richie, Oliver or Tommy.

The gifts range from artisan to quirky homeware, which I confess I made good use of (a mojito candle anyone?), and on the food front included Nice Blocks, Hakanoa traditional ginger beers, local O manuka honey chocolate (it’s really good, you should get your hands on some), and Joco glass keep cups, among others.

This is soooo going to be one of my favourite walk routes now!

    Coolsville is a neighbourhood meet up and enjoy simply a good coffee or purchase something from the cabinet, hot/cold to stay in or take away. Always fresh and delicious!
