Start your morning at Metita, where exceptional fare and the warmth of Pasifika culture collide

Michael Meredith’s Metita opened its doors last October and has since become a go-to for long lunches and convivial dinners with friends, so consistent is the eatery’s offering. But make for Metita in the morning, and you’ll find something else altogether.

From 8am, Monday through Friday, the South Pacific-inspired venue also acts as the perfect, laid back spot in which to enjoy a coffee and sweet treat fresh from Meredith’s kitchen. Here, the inventive Pacific flavours that make up the daytime and evening menus take on new life in Meredith’s inventive sweets, pastries and cakes, which sit as part of the eatery’s $10 ‘Grab & Go’ offering — including a sweet treat and coffee to either enjoy at Metita or take away.

Delivering a true taste of the South Pacific, and promising fare you won’t find elsewhere in the City, the menu boasts the likes of Lole Popos or ‘coconut lollies’ — a delectable, nostalgic treat from Meredith’s childhood that sees coconut paired with a heady mix of spices, resulting in a tasty treat reminiscent of a coconut Mackintosh’s toffee.

Alongside these lesser-known treats, specific to Pasifika cuisine, you’ll find inventive takes on the classics. Metita’s now-famed coconut lamingtons — soft, fluffy and addictive, are a must-try, while the fresh banana bread promises something familiar. All perfect when paired with a cup of expertly-made coffee.

Giving us yet another reason to visit Metita, the eatery’s coffee menu offers something unique, with a menu that takes Pacific cuisine to new heights. Here, traditional treats are elevated with modern culinary techniques, all with Michael Meredith’s magic touch.
