Kirsty’s Place Pleases

Te Horo’s secret bus stop is tops for coffee

By our Cafe correspondent, Luwak

I have a secret … and I’m going to share it with you!  Kirsty’s coffee bus, or more correctly Bus Stop Takeaways at 50 Dixie St, Te Horo, open Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays.

It was a beautiful sunny June day when we biked up along the beach to Te Horo. Normally we pack lunch, as there are no food outlets at Te Horo Beach that we know of. But having heard about Kirsty’s bus, we were keen to check it out.

The bus is tucked away off the street and is by no means an ordinary take away, more a mini gourmet café.  Cheese & Leek Flan, Fish Pie, Cheese & Caramelised Onion Toasted Ciabatta Sandwich, Eggs on Toast, Homemade Soup, Chocolate Brownie and Pecan Caramel Slice are just some of the tasty delights on offer.

We both opted for the Cheese & Caramelised Onion Toasted Ciabatta Sandwich and Pecan Caramel Slice along with a Supreme coffee. Everything was perfect, and with the sandwich priced at only $5 good value too.

But wait there’s more!! Kirsty is a crafty wee pea and had some homemade items for sale. A very funky tea cosy made out of felt, cute teddies, tomato relish, marmalade and big chunks of panforte.

I’m in heaven! To have such a cool café in their midst I’m guessing that the locals and weekenders are pretty happy too.
