Lunch place: Addington Coffee Co-op

Monday, June 05, 2017

Another Christchurch delight is the funky Addington co-op cafe. This place is uber cool - it's got big tables for shared dining, its own coffee roaster, a 'backyard' area where you can even picnic on the grassy patch the cafe food. There's space to park your bikes, and there's also a corner shop of ethical and ethnic products.

What I liked the most of this super bustlingly popular cafe, though, was what was written on one of its boards:

He aha te mea nui? Te tangata, te tangata, te tangata. What is the most important thing? It is people, it is people, it is people.

Addington co-op distributes 70% of their profit to those in need, both locally and overseas. Now that's awesome.
