177ml doesnt have the same sound to it. I had to look that up as I have no idea how much 6 Ounces even is. This is a small/tulip sized cup! Located on the main road in Merivale with all the shops is 6 Ounces....Some parking found on side streets if you find it a challenge. Defos worth the walk to get there. As soon as I opened the door I smiled. It was so homely and welcoming with their retro old sofas and lounge chairs. A lot of greenery about with pot plants made it feel very inviting to be there. An old Jurassic 5 track was playing that I havent heard in a long time and took me back down a happy memory road. It is always a good sign when a cafe plays your old favourite jams! The counter service was pleasant and friendly. They offered a small cabinet of fresh and delicious pastries, which you got to choose raspberry or strawberry jam to go with. Later served in a cute wee jar that I confess I pocketed to enjoy again later. Thanks! My coffee was perfect and delicious. I used the bathroom whilst there. Just a small little cubical but nicely finished with again, greenery and to my surprise, the first time I have ever seen in a cafe, complimentary tampons! Wow! Very thoughtful, kind and generous to offer these to those that need them. Without a doubt I will return and I really look forward to it. Such a cute little, lovely and homely cafe. Thank you.More

I visited 6 ounces for the first time today and was absolutely blown away by the cozy atmosphere, friendly service and all around hospitality. One of the best cafes in Ōtautahi hands down.

six ounces is the place to be!! Stellar service every time, the wonderful staff will cater to any & all needs you may have. Perfect for any occasion - meetings, dates, study sessions, catch-ups with friends, you name it! Not to mention they are enthusiastically...dog-friendly and the plant collection is gorgeous!

I love visiting Six Ounces due to their super-friendly staff including barista Ash Hardy. This cafe is in the middle of Merivale, just away from the Mall with a real homely vibe. They allow and cater to visitors with dogs, which is very cool. I...highly recommend you give this place a go!More
