Food Service

Nutritious and Beautifully Prepared 

Meal times are an important part of the daily rhythm here at Kumeu Village. We offer good, nutritious food to foster health and wellbeing, but we also provide plenty of opportunities for residents to socialise and enjoy companionship. Our elders are free to choose what, how and when they eat, and this spontaneity makes meals more enjoyable – and more delicious!

Our kitchen offers a two-week rotational set menu, as well as à la carte options and a cafe menu. Residents’ input into creating the menu ensures we offer food for everyone to enjoy – residents can bring suggestions or recipes straight to the kitchen. Each day follows a similar routine but includes plenty of variety:

• Buffet-style breakfast with toast, cereal, eggs and fruit

• Cooked breakfast on request

• Fresh baked treats every day for morning and afternoon tea

• A hearty lunch including dessert

• High tea twice weekly

• A light dinner followed by supper

• Happy hour every Friday

• Special diets catered to

Many residents enjoy a glass of wine or beer with their meals, and are welcome to keep a bottle of their favourite beverage in the fridge or kitchen.

Cafe on Site

Our in-house cafe is a great spot to meet and dine with family and friends. They can enjoy a meal with residents inside or outside underneath the pergola. The cafe makes fresh scones, muffins, homemade pies, toasties, drinks, including Altura coffee, and more, every day.

Dining tables and private areas for family parties are available at your convenience, and our kitchen team is available to cater for your celebrations.
