Nestled down a driveway off Grey Street its easy to see why Grey Gardens Cafe could easily be missed by the local wanderer. In fact if I hadn’t of glanced down at the right moment I would off missed their lovely sign perched on the ground, made the link to the Grey Grey Gardens movie nor spotted their pair of retro umbrellas brightening up the otherwise bland surroundings.
Wander past the mechanics and small business’s and you will discover a lovely and quietly humming cafe. Inside you will find an airy, family friendly space filled with vintage curiosity’s displayed in simply through out,some are available to purchase. Music plays quietly on a record player and there is a relaxed vibe to the space. Good coffee and NZ products are on offer and I found it refreshing that there wasn’t a cabinet crammed full of muffins, flat breads etc, instead there is a few items to tickle your taste buds. I recommend the iced coffee which is served Affogato style in a tall glass and the delicious espresso shot,custard, chocolatty, donutty goodness they had on offer………..ah yum!
You can find the lovely Grey Gardens at Shed 6 . 394 Grey Street . Hamilton East
