If you choose to come and pick up from either of our two cafes you will be asked to scan a QR code that will allow you to fill out an online form and thus register that you have visited our premises. This information will be emailed to you and it is advised that you create a Covid-19 tracing sub-account in order to store this information for any potential future tracing.

The information is also going to be held in an independent register by the company providing the QR code called Pappus Tracing (https://www.pappus.co.nz/touchfree-contact-tracing/). The government will be able to access this information, if an outbreak of Covid-19 occurs and someone, who has visited our premises, becomes infected.

We will also ask you to please continue to observe the 2m physical distancing rule as you queue during level 3. Contactless paywave payment will be available, as well as hand sanitiser for everyone to use.


We specialise in traditional European and naturally leavened sourdough breads. All breads are made from certified organic ingredients.

At Bread & Butter shops you will find a selection of traditional German rye sourdoughs, French crusty baguettes, wheat-free sourdoughs, and seeded loaves. Naturally leavened, yeast-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free bread, a wide range of vegan breads as well as a large selection of bread rolls including the famous German pretzel rolls complete the range. Our breads are baked directly on stone tiles, giving them a robust and tasty crust that seals in flavour and keeps them fresh for longer. Our bread is as good as bread can be, because we love bread.

Our cakes and pastries, savouries and pies are made according to traditional recipes that place utmost importance on taste and original style. No premixes and ready-to-use fillings are used in any of our products.

In our pastry range we aim to use local, spray-free, and organic produce where feasible and according to seasonal availability
