The Apothecary

27 Picton Street, Howick, Auckland 2014


Business Details

Artisans of wholesome food, fine beers & wines & really good coffee!

The Apothecary is an original 1950’s vintage fit out from France, Lovingly restored, this original 1950s Apothecary interior from Northern France has transformed itself into a lovable and exciting space for foodies.Ted’s vision for the Apothecary started with a modest kitchen and coffee machine, with a few tables and chairs, surrounded by antique pieces.

With a love for the Kiwi cafe culture, Ted saw the need and importance for quality coffee, along with top Baristas. The Baristas at Apothecary are crucial for maintaining the Apothecarys’ winning coffee reputation, and do so with their coffee roasting and superb Barista knowledge.

As business hit a rapport with the local community, the antiques were refined to the one shop. The next door premises lease was acquired and The Cellar Bar was developed.

Tim Lumsden, The Apothecary head Chef, is the most recent member of the team. Tim is a former New Zealand cafe of the year winner. Tim immediately made structural kitchen and menu changes to the business. Now with more kitchen staff joining the team, Tim has launched his new small plate and platters menu.  This has provided customers with an early taste of the private function catering Tim can provide. We welcome Tim as our newest team member with ownership interests.

This member is open on a regular basis, please check their website for opening hours.
