The owners and staff of the new Coffee Club Cambridge

Cambridge has welcomed one of New Zealand’s most popular café brands, with The Coffee Club opening its doors at the new Lakewood centre yesterday.

Owners of the new Coffee Club, Satendra Dass and Padma Wati, said they were excited to open and that they will offer something for everyone in the area. “It will be something different for Cambridge. Good food and excellent coffee in a modern location where we can cater for weekend tourists, local events and businesses.”

Dass said the store opening will benefit the local community. “We are looking to fill 12 to 15 positions – including part-timers. Our staff will bring that wonderful sense of community that is in the area to our café.”

Director of The Coffee Club, Andy Lucas, director of the Coffee Club, believes the new location will prove a hit for anyone in the Cambridge area.

“There are a lot of events and reasons to visit Cambridge,” he said. “We think The Coffee Club Cambridge is going to be a hit. It is in a popular location, in a lovely setting next to the lake, and it is easy to reach if you are travelling in and around Cambridge.”
