An ethical and crafty cafe

If you live in Christchurch (or even if you visit every now and then) and haven't been to the Addington Coffee Co-Op you really should. I love the relaxed interior of the former mechanics workshop, how they use country flags instead of table numbers, and the food is pretty darn delicious too.

The co-op includes a roastery, the cafe, a laundromat and now The Addington Store. The sweet wee shop which specialises in local and ethical gifts opened a few weeks ago and they have a small range of my Japanese and Scrabble tile jewellery amongst gorgeous items from other locals like Mixing Ink and Black Swan Designs. They also stock a lot of fair trade products, including Freeset bags and only use fair trade organic coffee beans, so they're looking after our world while keeping everyone happy!
