The Wardroom Coffee & Kitchen was first established by Chef Nicola Donald in January 2016 at a boutique premises on Ward Street, New Lynn. Word quickly spread of the great quality food offered and Nicola’s personal service, so in October 2016, when the opportunity arose to expand The Wardroom’s offerings and move to a bigger premise at the current location of 7 Totara Avenue, New Lynn, she jumped at the chance!
Nicola is a fully qualified chef with solid foundations learnt while working in a leading hotel in central Auckland for many years. Subsequently, Nicola felt a change of pace was needed and worked as a chef for several high-quality cafes in both Auckland & Melbourne. After getting married in 2013, an adventure was called for. Nicola and husband Hadley moved to the culinary capital of Australia – Melbourne, to further her knowledge and learn new skills. In late 2015, the decision was made to return home and share her love and passion for great quality, homemade food with fellow Aucklanders, ultimately establishing The Wardroom Coffee & Kitchen.
