Lion Ventures is set to bring the ultimate in fresh, affordable and convenient food to Auckland with the opening of a café with an ambition to make an impact through food.

The Humble Canteen’s goal is to inspire and nourish healthier Kiwi communities with a genuine offering that is better for you, better for the planet and better for society.

This three-pillar concept is fuelled by a holistic and transparent approach to wellness, with no tricks or hidden agendas, underpinned by an appetite for social and environmental sustainability. Dedicated to providing Kiwis with real food and making a positive impact within the industry, The Humble Canteen is a café with a difference that’s ready to make waves in Auckland’s growing health food scene.

Menu items include overnight oats, chia pots and smoothies for breakfast, a moreish selection of savoury flatbreads throughout the day (we’re talking Mexican bacon & egg or garlic aioli chicken with avocado) and a delicious range of on-the-go lunch options.

The Humble Canteen’s commitment to reducing its footprint is a vital part of its purpose, backed by industry-leading sustainability initiatives and a robust zero-waste policy. To support their mission to build environmentally conscious habits amongst Kiwis and eliminate waste to landfill, customers are encouraged to dine in or bring their own reusable containers to take food away.

The Humble Canteen will also engage other businesses with aligned values as partners, such as the ‘Again Again’ reusable cup lending system, to ensure a circular economy remains at the heart of the canteen’s operations.

The Humble Canteen is for the people, particularly the surrounding business area as its local community, making this new opening a must-visit for any Auckland CBD worker looking for real fresh, real fast, real food and a guilt-free lunch break.

The Humble Canteen will officially open to the public on March 19th, 2020.
