Hidden in a quiet suburban street of Pinehaven, is a surprising and aptly titled coffee shop, Little Haven.

Little Haven has been operating since 2016 for locals to grab their coffee hit after dropping the kids at school, but this secret little hideaway is worth checking out for your weekend jaunt.

They use People's Coffee , which is organic, ethically sourced, and is, coincidentally, one of my favourite Wellington beans. I found my latte to be smooth, with no tannins, and displaying delicate hints of dark chocolate.



Unlike some coffee, this didn't leave any strong aftertaste or bitterness. I always have an extra shot of espresso and even though it didn't have the harshness of strong coffee, I still felt that jolt of caffeine within moments of taking my first sip.

They also have sweets and pastries to purchase, which change frequently. On my visit they had brownies and cherry danishes but on their Facebook page, visitors have mentioned donuts, cookies and lemon meringue pie.



Little Haven also sells an eclectic selection of gifts and homewares including scented candles, soap, tea cups, baby toys, handmade jams, bath salts and ceramic pots. Goods are sourced from New Zealand, as well as locally, including books from Pinehaven Author, T.J. Green.



Little Haven accepts cash and EFTPOS, and offers outdoor seating. There is free parking outside or it's about a 15-20minute walk from Silverstream train station.

The tiny but cute Pinehaven Library is opposite, and there is a large park adjacent which includes a kids BMX bike track, tennis courts, and basketball courts (attached to the primary school).

It's unusual to find an adorable cafe, offering a random selection of beautiful gifts, tucked away in suburbia.
