Bringing People Together With Coffee And Comfort


What makes a great cafe?
… The food? The service? The people?
We believe a great cafe should have all of these things… and so much more!
It’s the little things that really matter…
Like a warm and welcoming atmosphere anyone can feel comfortable in.
Or a friendly hello from staff members who make sure you’re well looked after.
But don’t forget the most important ingredient…

Amazing coffee!


You see, there’s a reason we call ourselves “Red Cherry Roasters & Co.”
We go the extra mile to make high quality coffee.
And we’re crazy about the stuff!

Up to six days a week we roast on-site in our 7 kg Diedrich drum to ensure maximum freshness – mixing our own blend of coffee beans sourced from all over the globe.

Because not only is freshly roasted coffee better for your health…
It tastes better, looks better, heck… it even smells better!

We’re the ideal spot for…

  • Business meetings / networking (we’re a popular place for budding entrepreneurs and business types).
  • Catching up with friends and family (we also have a playpen to keep the little ones happy).
  • An escape from the stresses of life! (we all need this from time to time).
  • Buying your own coffee beans, so you can enjoy freshly roasted coffee at home!
  • Any other excuse for COFFEE!

“Amazing food and coffee. Also love the playpen to lock my kids up so I can eat! Staff are amazing keep up the great work! Yummiest eggs bene.”
– Larissa Alsemgeest

Owners Fin and Emma Maclennan

From A Dairy Farm In Hamilton To The Red Cherry

Born out of an old apple packing shed, Red Cherry Roasters & Co has been a popular Cambridge cafe since it’s opening back in 2003.
Having changed hands twice since then – it’s now owned by Fin and Emma Maclennan. However, less than a year ago this husband and wife duo were about as far away from cafe living as it gets…


A dairy farm in Hamilton to be exact!

But after a while milking 660 cows every morning started to lose its appeal…
So when Red Cherry cafe came on the market, the couple jumped at the opportunity!

It was the perfect fit – especially for Fin, who’s a qualified chef and patisserie chef by trade and has worked in a number of Auckland and London restaurants. Emma’s also a coffee freak (like many of us), so they were both stoked when they realised they could turn their passions into a viable business.

Overall, they believe the ingredients of a great cafe are:

  • Quality food
  • Fabulous coffee
  • And above all… a fantastic atmosphere!
“Food can take you on a trip around the world. It brings people together and it brings comfort.” - Emma Maclennan.
