Crave cafe is owned by a collective, a neighbourhood ‘whanaungatanga'* if you will. Some years ago, a few people got together and wanted to make Morningside a better place to live. They asked the locals what the neighbourhood needed most and addressing social poverty was top of the list. So they chipped in and started Crave where all of their profit goes towards the community - now they all get to live and work in the best of places.
One of the basic cravings of humanity is to connect with each other. They think that outstanding coffee, superb food and engaging conversations in locally-crafted spaces are a brilliant way to show ‘manaakitanga’ to all.
