Café Aroha has great coffee and offers a range of simple, yet delicious food and beverages; all served with love and supported by our volunteers.  Many items on our menu are made by our own volunteers and staff in our on-site Hospice Kitchen.

As Café Aroha is located within Totara House, it simultaneously provides a friendly environment for patients and families, whilst actively welcoming in our neighbours and the general public.  In doing so our patrons, whilst enjoying our menu, are also actively helping to sustain our Hospice into the future, as all proceeds from the Café support our work to continue.

All Café Aroha volunteers have been food and barista trained to ensure consistent quality of goods and services.  Free Wi-Fi and indoor or outdoor seating is available. Dogs are welcome in the outside dining area when on their leads; the perfect stop off after a walk around the Auckland Botanic Gardens.
