Slow Food Waitakere Summer Brunch at the amazing Cafe Ethos.

Last Saturday Slow Food Waitakere members and friends enjoyed a wonderful brunch at Ethos, a new Vegetarian cafe in West Auckland set up by iconic shop East West Organics. As to be expected the food at Ethos is also organic and there are plenty of Vegan dishes, plus raw food, gluten free choices, and salads and juices made with the produce grown in the cafe's own garden centre. Everybody was blow away with the vitality and quality of the food and the lovely setting.
Korin, the store manager, talked about the philosophy behind Ethos, East West Organics and heirloom seeds. We ended the morning with a bit of shopping in the store adjacent to the cafe, and a smile on our faces. :-)

Ethos is at East West Organics - 34D Portage Rd, New Lynn, Auckland.
