Local Community

Saul Stevens from Zomer Cafe

Zomer Cafe is owned and operated by Takapuna locals, based at 4 The Strand, Takapuna.

A little known fact about Zomer, we give 70% of our profits back to our staff in the form of a bonus! Zomer was set up as a business run by its staff, for its staff.

So if you’re looking for breakfast, lunch or just a great coffee, drop in and say hello to our wonderful team and know that you’re helping to boost the local community and economy.

We’re also available to be hired out for functions, plus our menu is hyper seasonal so we change it up every 4 weeks using only local produce 😊

We are big supporters of local community organisations, so if you're having a fundraising event please let us know!


Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Local Government NZ says the funding should be matched with a “strategic waste plan”, with the goal for New Zealand to be able to process its own waste onshore.

In the last decade, the amount of waste at council landfills has increased by 48 per cent.
