Kind eating for happiness & health

Killing it with kindness

"An environmentally conscious, vegan café in Christchurch that celebrates our beautiful world in all its forms, Bonobo Café is the embodiment of optimism and unbridled joy. Is it any wonder they made it to the top 5 in the 2023 Hospitality Awards? ... Their food also follows suit with a range of gorgeously presented, luscious eats that sing good vibes throughout the day." - First Table

Not just a café

Everything we do at Bonobo is based on kindness; being kind to the planet, to the animals, and to ourselves. Bonobo is a social enterprise; a purpose-driven vegan café in the beautiful seaside suburb of Christchurch, Sumner Beach.  All profits are going towards the establishment of an animal sanctuary on the peninsula. 

We see our purpose as scaling kindness;  through beautiful plant-based food, a positive and vibrant environment, and supporting health and happiness in life. Our new way of running a hospitality business gets noticed;  With a top 5 placing in the 2022 and 2023 Café of the Year awards, we're a fast-growing café that's out to showcase how exciting and delicious vegan food can be!
