Poll: Should dogs be allowed in cafes?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Dogs lolling beneath cafe tables while their owners sip lattes or glasses of pinot would have been unthinkable 30 years ago.

Now it is just the way Kiwis roll, with a raft of dog-friendly dining options available throughout the country. What do you think? Should dogs be allowed in cafes?

Recipe: Shortbread

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

Looking for a Christmas Special Recipe? Try baking our delicious easy Shortbread recipe.

Message:
This classic shortbread recipe is based on one from Edmond's Cookbook and is great to get the kids started on. Most shortbread recipes use caster sugar but I find that beginner cooks have greater success using icing sugar which is quick to cream.

Ingredients
225 g Butter, cut into cubes

225 g Flour

125 g Cornflour

125 g Icing sugar

Which local cafes make the best coffee?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from North Shore Times

Hi neighbours, we all know Kiwis love coffee but a survey has found that Auckland coffee drinkers are more likely to buy their coffee than Kiwis from the regions. A third of Aucklanders buy at least half of their weekly coffees and most preferred a flat white. How often do you buy coffee out? What do you usually order? And which local cafes do you think make the best coffee? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Missing Tonkinese Cat

Deborah from Birkenhead

Hi Neighbours, I am very worried about my cat Devon. He hasn't come home since Tuesday night (19th November). We have only been in the area for one month having moved to Birkenhead from St Heliers. Devon is 15 and has quite a bit of arthritis so I can't imagine he would want to wander far. He can be a bit aloof with people but usually loves men! He loves to get into vans, utes etc and there is a bit of building work going on close by (we are in Catrina Ave) so am wondering if he got into someones work vehicle and went for a ride. Anyway, please let me know if you have seen him. Thanks so much.
