Trade School Kitchen

Central Naenae cafe training & providing employment in the hospitality industry to those with a prison past & a bright future. @tradeschoolindustries

We’re on the home stretch team and we’ve got the perfect pick-me-up for the Monday blues. @fixandfogg crunchy peanut butter with our house made blueberry & lemon jam, served on a thick slice of @pandorowellington grain bread with a sprinkling of toasted coconut - delicious. Throw in a @peoplescoffeenz and you’ve got yourself a breakfast of champions! #tradeschoolkitchen
@tradeschoolkitchen will be closed for some of the holiday season. Make sure you memorise the dates so you don’t miss out on your fix! #tradeschoolkitchen
@tradeschoolkitchen is a Social Enterprise cafe providing employment opportunities for the previously incarcerated. We've recently welcomed the first of the women to come through the Arohata Training Programme, into the cafe full-time and we couldn't be more excited to have her onboard #tradeschoolkitchen

Every now and then we even get the lovely Matt Lamason on the machine - old habits die hard! #tradeschoolkitchen
It’s looking a bit overcast out there - perfect day to be inside with a healthy dose of our Beetroot Hummus Toast. House-made beetroot hummus, fresh sauerkraut, sprouted lentils and tamari toasted pepitas on sourdough toast - can’t go wrong! #tradeschoolkitchen
Time for an afternoon pick-me-up? We’re open until 4pm every day (except Sundays) serving Organic and Fair Trade, Peoples Coffee #tradeschoolkitchen
On Saturday we said goodbye to the amazing Brit. Brit was with @tradeschoolkitchen from the start and has been a force of nature in the cafe - baking and cooking up a storm, smashing out coffees on the machine and taking the time to really get to know the Naenae community. Brit has taken a role at another awesome Cafe a little closer to her Kapiti Coast home. We will miss this talented lady and wish her all the best for the future #tradeschoolkitchen
Today was international #socialenterpriseday and it just happened to coincide with the @tradeschoolindustries Arohata graduation - 7 women graduating our barista training programme. On TOP of that we’re celebrating the 3rd week that Sage has been with us, what a week! #tradeschoolkitchen
