Oh My Goodness is one of those places where you walk through the front doors and instantly sense the care and attention that has gone into creating the business. Part of The Tribune Precinct in the centre of Hastings, not only is this a café, but it is also a bakery and milling site. 

OMGoodness Bread was first developed over 15 years ago with the goal of being gluten-free but also providing high nutritional value, a great texture no matter what it’s being used for (sandwich, toast or otherwise), and to appeal to a child’s taste as well. Over the years, they have become renowned around town for their specialty breads, plus you are also able to buy their pre-mixes to make the bread at home. 

In November 2021, they moved into their current home in The Tribune, and in April 2022, their Goodness café was opened. The fit-out of the space was a labour of love and a real team effort by the staff of Oh My Goodness. Owner Scott embraced his former life as a tiler and painstakingly lay the emerald green tiles adorning the front counter and barista area. Other touches around the café are the hand-crafted and re-purposed items, such as the timber wall behind the counter, which was the floor in the original building. There’s also a designated sky blue kids’ table complete with colouring in to keep the wee ones entertained while you enjoy a bite to eat and a drink. 

When it comes to the food at Oh My Goodness, you are guaranteed to feel wholesome after dining here. The food they serve is gluten-free and predominantly vegan too, and they have a cabinet of goodies that includes rainbow sammies, toasties and desserts. Or you can order pizza by the slice, fresh from the impressive oven out the back. Housemade kombucha is on offer, alongside a range of teas and top-notch coffee using beans from local Hawkes Bay roasters Thirdeye. 

Things aren’t slowing down at Oh My Goodness anytime soon.  With plans to extend into the atrium space next door, they are also available to cater and host events.  These guys have vision, so don’t miss out on enjoying it!
