Enjoy great coffee at AKO Espresso Café

If you’re chasing a caffeine boost (fix) or just a lunchtime bite, AKO Espresso Café serves quality hot or cold espresso beverages and a variety of tasty sweets and savouries.

AKO Espresso Café operates as a facility to showcase student work and allow for applied learning. It will be open on selected weeks on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and also for some pop-up experiences during the year.

It is located at the street front of our M Block on Harbour Terrace (next to Manaaki).

AKO Espresso Café will be back in 2023

Our Food and Beverage together with our Cookery tauira are poised to present their café experience at AKO Espresso Café on Harbour Terrace.


Our tauira are really looking forward to being able to serve our guests at AKO Espresso Café again. They have worked hard to develop a varied menu and beverage list with dine-in and pick-up options.

Usual operating hours are from 9.00am to 2.00pm.
