About
In The Neighbourhood Coffee & Bake House is the home of Neighbourhood Coffee, roasted fresh in the heart of Martinborough. We are a micro roaster, coffee house, and retailer. We love our wee Neighbourhood and we also love what we do. Our aim is to deliver the tastiest coffee, in a chilled out environment in the cutiest little town in the Wairarapa. We offer an exciting range of cabinet food from freshly baked rustic pastries, slices and cakes to super-food smoothies, and gluten free delights, our bakers whip up a fine batch of cheese scones every morning, voted the best in NZ by the crew at Radio Live NZ, we’re pretty super excited about that! We have a very simple coffee philosophy, we source high quality coffee beans, and accomplish an excellent roasted coffee that is consistent in flavor and simply serve it with care and respect. The crew at In the Neighbourhood Coffee House are all about embracing community, so make sure you call in when your next in our neck of the woods.

Ok...it has to be said - the cheese scones are amazing! Very light and fluffy - not like some places where you feel you’ve eaten a massive lump of cooked dough. These are to die for, and have heaps of cheese in them. The cabinets...More

It’s a local and it’s the best coffee and so is the cheese scone. Cheese scones are sooooo light and fluffy. There is plenty of other options for cabinet cafe cakes etc if you tire of the scones. The staff are friendly too.

Ducked in for a quick coffee before hitting the road but couldn't resist the award winning cheese scone. Just delicious! Busy little spot and popular with locals.
