A delicious stop-off on any drive through Springfield, Taste of Kiwi café is a new venture for Cam Clark and Kristina Squires. And the couple are overdelivering on their pledge to serve the best of Kiwi cuisine, community, and hospitality.
Not only are the couple determined to create a hub for the community to gather and host events, but they have created a mouth-watering menu and tempting cabinet food offerings, all within a fresh and modern new space.
“Taste of Kiwi was born through a love of travel and a passion for people,” says Cam.
“Kristina and I have travelled throughout the world, and everywhere we have been Kiwi hospitality has been famous for its genuine people, tasty food, and beautiful coffee. We have aimed to create a space for locals and visitors to come together, enjoy good food and relax.”
Serving a full breakfast and lunch menu – which includes the famous Kiwi Breakfast, classic eggs benedict and a modern take on mince on toast which consists of house-made beef mince, rosemary potato cake, free range poached egg and toasted ciabatta – the café has a tempting selection of cabinet food, too. With fresh baking daily, gourmet pies, and many gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options.
Kristina, who grew up in Springfield, says her and Cam are enjoying supporting local events, supplying catering and bringing new passion to the community. They enjoy meeting travellers from Christchurch or further afield.
