1855 Great North Road, Avondale, Auckland 1026
A sweet, petite caravan serving tasty bites and excellent coffee.
Named Ol’ Mate, this unconventional cafe-on-wheels offers both sweet and savoury baked goods, sandwiches and salads.
It is co-owned by pastry chef Claudia Long and barista Bree Bauer, with Long’s partner Ryan Pearce (also a chef). Long and Pearce previously owned another Avondale cafe, Te Whau, where Bauer worked for them as their barista, and the three enjoyed working together so much that collaborating for this project seemed like a no-brainer.
