New Airport Cafe Becomes Visitor Attraction

The new Kete Kai pop-up cafe, made largely of recycled materials from the Hawke’s Bay Airport terminal redevelopment project, has turned into a popular visitor attraction.

Designed by New York City architect Michael Zaragoza, who has moved to Napier as part of the Arrow International team, the cafe features a taste of Hawke’s Bay combining the regions horticultural and Art Deco elements.

Hawke’s Bay Airport’s commercial manager Dean Smith said as well as servicing customers, who are wanting to grab a quick coffee as they go by, the pop-up cafe design has also become a popular topic of conversation.
