Gourmet sandwiches, fresh salads, quality Allpress Espresso coffee and a relaxing atmosphere. That’s a selection of what people can expect when they visit the Health Precinct’s latest café, Kānuka, when it opens its doors to the public from 7am Monday 28 January.
Located on the ground floor of the new Christchurch Outpatients building looking out to Oxford Terrace, Kānuka will provide staff, patients and passers-by with a light, bright and open space in a ‘High Street’ setting to enjoy top-notch coffee and a bite to eat.
Retail Manager, Nick Abernethy, says he’s looking forward to Kānuka finally opening its doors and people sampling what’s on offer.
“We’ll be preparing our selection of fresh food on site daily, with the variety on offer sure to have wide appeal.
“Kānuka will cater to a large cross-section of dietary requirements, with a range of gluten free, dairy free and vegan options available. From classic scones, speciality donuts from locals Grizzly Baked Goods, freshly prepared salads and soups, right through to nutritious breakfast bowls – there’s something for everyone at Kānuka,” says Nick.
Customers can look forward to top quality espresso coffee with all of the café’s passionate baristas having undergone professional training with Allpress, to ensure the coffee appeals to even the harshest critic. Complementing the coffee will be T2 tea, and if you know T2 then you know that it’s not your average tea experience!
Nick explains that this is not the only thing that makes Kānuka special however, with the launch of the café’s new ordering app.
“We’re really excited about our new app which will launch when the café opens on 28 January, meaning Kānuka’s customers will be able to order their favourite beverage at the touch of a button.”
The app will be available free from app stores from Monday. Simply search ‘Kānuka’ and download.
