Our Team

We think our team is wonderful!

Heading our team as Cafe Manager is Selena who started with us in August 2009.  Selena makes amazing coffee, has great organization skills and friendly nature and these attributes along with being a local Fitzroy girl herself has made her well loved by all our regulars.

Backing up Selena is Emily her right hand lady.  Her sweet disposition and fantastic barista skills make her the perfect compliment to our management duo.  These two ladies are always happy to help out with any queries you may have.

Heading up the kitchen is Tia, whose many years of experience are evident in the quality and skill shown in the meals and baking produced to delight  your senses.  Tia's experience in baking, catering and functions shows in his unflappable nature which ensures your event will run smoothly so check out our catering and function options for when you next need to organize a work or personal function.  Tia has three other ladies who work in our tiny kitchen with him on various days to assure you get the best quality food on every visit.

Tia is also a part owner and works with both our service and kitchen staff and his many years experience as a chef in both New Plymouth and Wellington are revealed in the food he produces.  Tia is the glue that fills all the gaps in the business as an owner and with his 18 years experience as a chef but he also knows how to charm when serving on the front line.  Tia's multi-faceted  skills makes him versatile in a way where he can fill in where ever he is needed.  His hospitality experience both in and out of the kitchen means that your catering and functions will always run smoothly.

Working along side our full time team members are several lovely ladies and gentlemen who help us with the busy lunch times and in keeping everything running smoothly, as well as Liz the other owner who works behind the scenes in the payroll and administration area.

So that's us and our wonderful team and we look forward to you coming to visit us soon.
