Pompallier Mission coffee house open all winter
The news is all good for fans of the delicious espresso and stunning bay views of the Pompallier Mission Coffee House.
The French-themed eatery – which is part of the historic printery cared for by Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga – will remain operating throughout winter by popular demand.
The coffee house has become a favourite of Russell locals as well as visitors to the Bay of Islands, and will open between the hours of 11am and 3pm every day offering the perfect range of French-themed light lunches for winter.
“We’re delighted to be able to extend our service throughout winter, and look forward to providing such delicacies as French Onion soup and Leek and Potato soup, as well as savoury French tarts,” says the Manager of Pompallier Mission, Scott Elliffe.
“Other delicacies on the menu will include local oysters and sparkling mineral water, as well as our delicious espresso and selection of teas.”
The historic Pompallier Mission printery building will be fitted with a fire sprinkler system during winter and will be closed to the public while that work is being done (June through August). The coffee house, however, will remain open during this time.
The new winter hours will take place from Tuesday May 1. Due to the intimate space in the coffee house lunch bookings are recommended – Ph 09-403-9015.
