Mint Folk & Co

Cafes icon

Perhaps the most visually appealing cafe in the Mackenzie region, Mint Folk & Co is all about great food, great aesthetic and great service. Styled to perfection, the cafe is just the right mix of sophistication and casual cool.

The interior colour scheme is a nod to the cafe’s name, with accents of mint green amongst natural tones and refreshing whites.  Plants hang from the ceiling and are dotted across the space.  Paper lamps, large windows and high ceilings bring in plenty of light, resulting in an atmosphere of calm and relaxation.

Beauty also plays a big part in the offerings of Mint Folk & Co. Dishes are not just full of punchy flavours, but presented with care. The kitchen likes to play with colours and textures, and the menu is filled with items that cater for all dietary needs as well as any young ones in your family. Pair your dish of choice with a refreshing cold-pressed juice or a brilliantly brewed coffee made with Supreme beans.

With three different seating areas along with plenty of outdoor space, there is that perfect spot waiting for you at Mint Folk & Co., whether you want to park up with the laptop and a cup of coffee in a quiet corner or bring the whole whānau for a lunch catch up. A separate bar area is the hideaway for a sneaky daytime vino.

Exceeding expectations is what the people behind Mint Folk & Co strive for, and it’s fair to say that it shows in everything that they do.
