Our Coffee

Turning coffee into water. We are very excited to be partnering with Excelso. A coffee distributor with a similar heart to ours doing great things in our community. They do an organic and Fair Trade coffee blend called good.coffee through the Good Trust. This coffee not only tastes amazing, is a channel to building wells and providing fresh water for communities in Cambodia.

How you may ask? The good trust is a 100% charity. This means that 100% of all profit/ money donated goes to the project that it is supporting. It works out like this. You buy ONE coffee from us, and by doing so, you provide fresh water for one person for a whole week in Cambodia. How cool is that!? Your daily treat can make a difference in someone’s life for a whole week. Imagine how much good we can do together!

Our Food

We use a european concept at The Daily. Instead of having 30 different menu items, we have much less, offering a few fabulous fresh meals to choose from daily – good wholesome food, reasonably priced without compromising on quality, and changing according to the seasons.

Our focus is on great service and fresh food. With an ever changing menu, you can try different things every time you come in. You can also choose from a select range of fresh salads, freshly made smoothies, something sweet or even a freshly made savoury in our cabinet.

We value our environment and therefore focus on local produce and minimum waste. We also offer catering for meetings, meet-ups or special days and occasions. Give us a call to design a menu of your choice.

At Fairhaven School we used The Daily Cafe for catering our parent teacher interviews dinner, and I have sampled items from their menu on many occasions. The food is always absolutely divine. Fresh, healthy and generous in portion size. The presentation of the food is always outstanding and it tastes amazing. I would highly recommend The Daily Cafe to everyone.

We used The Daily – Goodness Within Catering Service for our AGM lunch and afternoon tea. We told them to ‘surprise us’ with their culinary delights – and surprise they did! They were fantastic to deal with – very efficient, and was happy to cater for any special needs that we required. Their presentation of the food on the day was outstanding, and as we are a kiwifruit organisation, they had created a theme around kiwifruit – both in the food and the table decorations. All round, this was a great experience for us, and have no hesitation in recommending this catering service.

Baygold Group

Thanks for an amazing spread for our AGM. The food was fresh, healthy, unique and delicious. We will definitely be using The Daily in future.

    Opening times are advertised as having lunch till 1.30pm. Dropped by around 1.15-1.20pm, only to be told the kitchen was closed. Disappointing and misleading.

    Best little cafe in town. Not operating at full sit down capacity at this stage but you ca swing by and get yourself a coffee. The cafe is in full support mode to all those who need meals and so whilst that is happening they have gone to a takeaway for coffee. love love love it here. they have a Pay it forward board,

    Gutted.. 😕 wanted to take my family in as they have a play area, but the waitress confirmed that they are vax pass for entry & cannot even offer me contactless purchase. Doesn't make me want to support them after mandates drop on the 5th of April.

    Very friendly staff. Good vibe. Food was delicious. Loaded potatoes with cheese and bacon with sour cream and Aioli on the side. Note this cafe is a charity and donates all profits to the community. Love it!!

  • We ordered the strawberry waffles, salmon eggs Benny, and regular flat white. Waffles were really nicely presented and great value for money, however was a bit dry and the cream was canned cream so melted instantly and did not have much texture. Got a generous amount of salmon with the salmon benny and overall was decent. Flat white was a bit too hot but still nice strong flavour. Worth stopping by on the way to Tauranga 🙂

    What a fantastic find. Such a large selection of food and delicious coffee. Most impressed with the whole idea behind the cafe - helping the community. I loved the baskets of knitting, inviting customers to add a few rows to the baby blankets. Lovely friendly staff and great service. Will definitely be back.

    What a find! Driving from Whakatane to Tauranga we stumbled on to this place while heading for the toilets close to New World. Food was beautiful {best ginger crunch ever), service was very warm and friendly (extra butter for the scones on request}, tea was top quality (leaves in infusion not just standard teabag) and coffee was great. I will tell everyone I can about this place.

    I was really having a bad moment and I found this place just in the right time, this coffee shop have great vibes! First time I try a turmeric latte with coconut milk as the pretty lady from the bar advised me : A-mazing taste! perfect for starting my day with good energy. Nice staff, cabinet for drooling. This café is perfect!! I highly recomend it if you are in Te Puke doing your groceries, if you are just passing though or if you want to cheer your day up as me! 🙂
