Located on Newmarket’s Broadway is Newbie, a vibrant cafe designed by Material Creative. Based on the bottom floor of the Mercury building, the cafe livens up the business district with splashes of colour. Described as “a colourful oasis in a sea of concrete”, the space boasts a vibrant and eccentric interior, with technicolour tiling and fun neon accents.
Harrows helped to inject character into the space through modern, thoughtfully designed furniture. Upholstered Mode Stools and striking Pi Leaners spill out into the foyer to accommodate the weekend crowd, promising an electric and engaging environment to meet for those in the area, Newbie is a space for professionals and collaborators to gather over a cup coffee, expertly brewed by a team of baristas – which includes the two-time winner of the New Zealand Latte Art championship, Leo Li.
