Tart Bakery has arrived at the University of Auckland’s city campus, giving students a fresh new food option as they return back to in-person study.
Vegan bakery Tart is moving into the quad food court from Monday 2 May and will be open on weekdays from 9am to 4pm.
Tart currently has two other locations on Great North Road and Commercial Bay, Queen Street, and is known for its bread, pies, doughnuts, sandwiches, and other baked goods, all free of animal products.
The bakery told Craccum that to celebrate their first week on campus, they are giving away 50 free doughnuts every day at their new store from Monday 2 May to Wednesday 4 May, between 9am and 1pm.
Halina from Tart Bakery says they are excited for UoA students and staff to visit their new store.
“We are so thrilled to be opening up at Auckland Uni and to be making affordable, healthy, and delicious food for some of the brightest minds in Auckland that also happen to be vegan! We are passionate about making tasty food while saving the planet.”
We’re not sure if UoA students can claim to be the “brightest minds in Auckland,” but perhaps the hungriest. Students in the Quad told Craccum that they had been disappointed with the food options available during the first half of the Semester when they came in to study.
“It seems like construction or COVID has shut down a lot of retailers. And the places that are open all shut before 3pm,” said one student, Sam. “It’s just not the same as it used to be.”
Another student, Tori, says that while Uni Sushi, Hollywood Bakery, and other retailers are good, she is excited to see more vegan and vegetarian options being introduced.
