Tried and True

Unable to recreate the wild black sand west coast beaches, reckless road rage, and volcanic beauty of New Zealands largest city, our founder created a cool local cafe, just like the one round the corner from the (legendary) garage in Mt Eden. Thats the one where tall tales of the night before, plans for the day ahead and wild schemes for the future were discussed with good friends and flatmates over eggs benedict and a couple of flat whites. Or maybe french toast with bacon and a cheeky long black. There were only two rules, the best food and the best coffee. The first cafe opened in West Putney in early 2012 and it is called Tried & True because were not trying to be clever.

Tried and True

This friendly cafe in Putney has the motto - “if we are child friendly, then we are dog friendly as dogs are not as messy”. We love the way they think! I have been here many times and am always made very welcome, there is always water available and they have a large jar of treats for us on the counter. There are a few tables out front but it is on a very busy road. They also have a small back garden which is only in use in good weather. The cafe gets very busy at weekends because they do an excellent brunch and the humans also love their coffee. There is room enough inside for dogs of all sizes and they don’t mind us sitting on the seats. Archie 🐾🐾
