Bugger 2 opens doors at Tirau

bugger Tirau April Fools Day We are thrilled to open our second Bugger Cafe in Tirau. We were aiming for an April 1 opening day, we thought very fitting for April Fools Day. But bugger, we just weren’t quite ready so April 2 was our first day in time to iron out a few issues for Easter weekend.

With our signature tractor and similar decor we are really pleased with the feedback and everything is going well!

Coffee and kitchen teams have all been up to Pipiroa for training and everything seems to be falling into place.

Bugger Birthday

We celebrated our first birthday in style with our fantastic team and an awesome cake made by Joy… tastes even better than it looked and we thought it looked pretty cool.

Has been an amazing year, loads of hard work and a LOT of fun.

We really feel like our guests resonate with our sense of humour and do leave a little happier than when they came in!

Looking forward to our second year and all the adventures(and additions!?)  that it will bring!!
