I’ve been lucky enough to venture over to Tauranga a few times recently to photograph the beautiful Somerset Cottage in Tauranga for UNO Magazine. The lovely owners Anne and Rick have owned Somerset for over 30 years now and have seen many a change. You can take a look at the article in the latest UNO. Magazine, written by Talia Waldegrave of Hoopla PR. The restaurant, situated in Bethlehem, is beautiful and their food is nothing short of amazing.
New Hamilton Café, Two Birds Eatery (Next to the Riv Bar in the Clyde Street Shopping Centre) serves up a wide variety of raw, gluten free and vegan foods, with a real focus on clean eating. Their famous raw cheesecakes are mouthwatering, and their Mango & Raspberry Cupcakes are amazing.
While I was there I had a Matcha latte, apparently the equivalent to 10 cups of green tea nutritionally, I loved it, and felt a definite boost of energy after drinking it!
Jojo, the owner of Two Birds Eatery was studying holistic nutrition when she started up the Café, and it’s been a huge success since the beginning.
Dough Bros in Hamilton is a new restaurant in town, focusing on food to share – like pizza’s, donuts and sliders. They have a strong focus on local producers, such as The Manuka Brothers Coffee, and local craft beer Shunters Yard.
They gave Nourish their Dough Bros Donuts with Raspberry Coulis recipe, which I was lucky enough to have a taste of when I was there and they were so good!
