Shakey but not flakey
Britomart stalwart serves up the goods in a myriad of ways
In the coolest precinct in the city, the coolest café in the precinct – early adopter and neighbourhood cornerstone Shakey Isles – is right up with the play in terms of serving ethically sourced and produced food and coffee. That means organic, free range and Fairtrade wherever possible.
Explains manager Rob Rivers: “We believe that to make the best products, you need to find the best ingredients. Coffee is our passion and we are always going above and beyond to source the best quality single origin beans for our specialty coffees. These beans are organically grown and we are careful to choose those that are Fairtrade.
“Although these products are slightly more expensive we believe that more time and nurturing goes into them, resulting in a superior quality good. It is great to see that more people are buying and more importantly caring about organic and Fairtrade products, resulting in an easily accessible supply at a competitive price.”
