Everything in the Delicatessen is made with Love, by Hand and in Small Batches.

Using organic, local and seasonal produce, good fats and natural sweetness, Chef Alesha Bilbrough-Collins pulls 20 years of her most memorable highlights, knowledge and flavours together in a bold mélange of quality New Zealand produce.


Our Organic salads change every week with the availability of the local, seasonal, and organic produce we use. We never use refined white sugar or flour and on any given week there are options to suit  most dietary requirements.


We use real ingredients to make real food.
