Is your favourite cafe part of the War on Waste?

This page has been created to help celebrate all of the fantastic cafes in the Hunter region who have made a commitment to reduce their coffee cup wastage by rewarding customers who bring their own cup.

We're also keeping note of cafes who recognise the environmental & ethical impacts of the dairy industry, and as such do not charge extra for plant based milks such as soy.

We've highlighted the rad cafes who offer both a discount and no extra charge with a little picture & italics to help you find your new faves!

This page is a work in progress as the zero waste and vegan movements grow and expand their reach. If you have updated information about your favourite cafe please email us at newcastleveganguide@gmail.com - we'd love to hear from you!
