The Old Stone Butter Factory, Whangarei
(4.2/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
The Old Stone Butter Factory wants Whangarei to thrive and everyone in it to thrive.

The cafe/bar has seen the talent this town has--growers market, great food and drinks, NZ beers and wines, and fruit juices. It also saw a niche for a place that would appeal to people who aren’t interested the usual sort of clubs/pubs and music; somewhere that transcends judgement/age/race/appearance and we have found that good vibes attract good people.

The Butter Factory wants locals to have pride for the community of Whangarei. It gives people a reason to come out by putting on a range of events, including national and international touring gigs. By providing good food and good service, this cafe wanted to raise the bar for hospitality in this town. It also wanted to provide coffee after 3pm in a place that is not a petrol station.
