"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.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!

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 at the entrance and it continues right throughout the store - so you need not worry about every nook and cranny being accessible to you!A video showing the accessible seating areas in the cafe can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QekEj5Mp_Ds
We’re afraid Avonhead Black and White Coffee Cartel doesn’t have wheelchair/disabled only parking available outside the café, as it’s a shared car park with another business so it can get a little busy! We suggest organizing to be dropped off, or preparing to have a companion with you to assist you into the café.
Access To Toilets
Luckily for you, Avonhead Black and White has toilets available - this includes wheelchair access toilets. If you need a toilet open for you at all times during your visit, we suggest mentioning this to our staff upon arrival and they are happy to organize this for you.A video showing the accessible toilet facilities at the cafe can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nco4eLl_qfs

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.
