People’s coffee in Lukes Lane
I popped by the new People’s Coffee in Lukes Lane this weekend, their first flagship in the CBD (the mothership being in Newtown).
We happened along while various toast specials are on the go around town, so figured it’d be rude not to sample their beetroot pickled eggs on toasted Bakers rye with turmeric almond butter, beetroot pint beans, fennel pickle and fresh rocket. Phew!
It was spectacular to look at and a very good balance of flavours and textures. If you’re in the area, get this under your belt forthwith.
We also sampled Esther’s chocolate almond butter and orange marmalade on sourdough, which was certainly pleasant but might have been enhanced with a little banana on top to add a light fruity layer against the tackiness. No doubting the quality of ingredients though.
I like that they’re using the Oatery’s granola too, another tasty Wellington venture.
People’s coffee is all about sourcing organic and fair trade through long-term cooperative partnerships, so you’re doing the world a service by popping into People’s for your fix of java.
