Originally Go-Bang Espresso, Origin was Ripe's Jason and Cate's first cafe from 2000-2014 and where now and from 2018, the cafe is back in their hands and has been given a bit of a face lift. Serving up Pito-one, a seasonal menu & treats with plenty of vegan options, Origin has got you covered with great food, strong coffee and friendly service.


Greatest Hits

Vegan Hash

Housemade Vegan Hash with portobello, greens, facon (fake bacon) topped with almond hollandaise.

The Vegan Hash is a staple and a standout dish amongst Petone locals - vegan or not! At Ripe's very first cafe, Go Bang Espresso, Cate and Jason developed a hash cake that stemmed from the Cate's Irish love for potatoes and everything homemade being that much more delicious. For many years this Hash was a popular choice with locals on Jackson Street rolling in every morning to get it - everyone loves a hash & anything potato based right? A few years on, the Ripe team has recreated their classic at Origin with a new & improved housemade hash that has adapted to Ripe's vegan love and focus. With the portobello mushroom, crispy hash and even crispier facon, you can't go past the Vegan Hash - we all need a bit of potato therapy in our lives we say.

Special Offer: 2 for 1 Every Tuesday. Vegan Facon or Bacon options only.
