"A fresh start sounds just like what New Zealand and Christchurch, especially, needs after the Canterbury earthquakes that occurred in 2011. Black and White Coffee Cartel wants to bring just that to our locals, initiating a new franchise of coffee shops that are determined to introduce their unique and funky vibe to the streets of Canterbury. This coffee location is in Rolleston.Keeping the idea of ‘the future’ in mind Bink Bowler - the founder of Black and White Coffee Cartel - is embarking on a warm atmosphere filled with the aroma of freshly ground coffee and relaxation no matter the person. Here at the Cartel you can expect delicious food, drinks and incredibly welcoming and personal service from our staff.But wait, just before you thought it couldn’t get any better, there’s a new spin to introduce - During the first year the team decided to liven things up by introducing New Zealand’s first ‘micro-roasting coffee franchise,’ meaning you can watch as your very own coffee gets roasted there on site! Along with this individuality, Black and White Coffee Cartel has loud music to enjoy, mismatching furniture from multiple eras, art coating the walls and relatable baristas that are just like you and me.And watch out, they even cater to all gluten and dairy-free lovers out there!So whether it’s in a suit, flip flops or work boots, come along to a Black and White Coffee Cartel near you - Wherever the location, you’re very welcome here!"
Notes for card holders
"Here at the Black and White Coffee Cartel, we are determined to make all of our customers feel welcome and have a positive experience at any location. We acknowledge that our disabled customers potentially face some barriers that we could help them overcome. Your server will have specific training around those barriers and what they can do to proactively make a difference.We can also understand that having a disability often means extra living expenses, and not being to flash with cash. For that reason, we’re giving you 10% off hot drinks. How sweet is that!"
Standing and Queuing
Who likes queuing, but for those who find this an actual problem then we are happy to come to you to take your order. Just make sure we know that you are there!
There is wheelchair access right throughout the building - if you are concerned we recommend using the door closest to the carpark rather than the road (pictured in the photo). It has a large concrete slope leading up to the automatic door, and you can wheel your way in. The toilets are wheelchair friendly.A video showing the accessible entrance to the cafe can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DExDSrPMsEI
There is wheelchair parking as you can see, and from the carpark round the back to the entrance it is a short distance. If you park somewhere along the street out front however, then you may struggle as there are no wheelchair friendly parks along with minimal general parks available.
Access To Toilets
There is a toilet in the cafe that is additionally wheelchair friendly.
We would love you to bring your assistance dogs to our lovely cafe - There is even an area out front with a water bowl and some outdoor tables if this sounds appealing to you.
We appreciate that not everyone in your group is wanting to purchase a drink, or something to eat. We are good with that, we think they will crack when they see the cabinet and smell those wonderful aromas, but if they have the will power then that’s all good with us.
Accessing Visual Information
Our drinks and food menus are written, and so is the description of the items in the cabinet. However, your server is more than happy to assist in explaining what we can offer, and they know you may need just a bit of extra time to decide what you want. Remember, if it is easier we can come to you at the table.
Accessing Audible Information
We are not in the position to offer sign language, but your server will be happy to spend the time needed with you so that you get what you want. Remember, if it is easier we can come to you at the table.
The Cafe has a sound absorbing ceiling to keep noise levels down, which based on feedback from customers is very effective.We have one corner of the cafe which is quite secluded, but please call to reserve as it is available for all customers.If you have any other inquiries or feedback on how we can make your trip to Black and White Coffee Cartel easier, feel free to contact us.
