Voting now open for People’s Choice NZ Cafe of the Year

Do you have a favourite coffee stop that ticks all the boxes? It’s time to support your favourite café in New Zealand by voting for them to win a People’s Choice award in the 2018 Meadow Fresh New Zealand Café of the Year competition.

New to the 2018 competition, there will be a People’s Choice award winner in each of the 34 regions across the country. Competition will be fierce!

Why do you love your local cafe? From the flat white they’re already creating for you as you enter the door, to the café owner who knows your dog by name or the delicious meal that gets you back every week. The People’s Choice category is a firm favourite as it determines the most loved cafe’s around the country – as selected by YOU – the general public.

The 34 regional winners of a People’s Choice award will be announced this coming December. The café with the highest number of public votes in the nation, will be announced the National People’s Choice award winner at an event held in Auckland, February 2018 along with the 2018 Meadow Fresh Café of the Year.

Get voting for your local favourite: Voting closes 27 October.
