Willy Bridewell-Roberts and Tait Burge have been making coffee for over 20 years between them. They opened Swimsuit’s first iteration on Dixon Street – a dark blue, white-accented corner spot just off Cuba Street. They decided to take it to the ‘burbs at the end of 2021 when a former People’s Coffee outlet came up for lease in Miramar.
The fit-out is simple but has a good vibe – customers sit around wooden tables in the brick-walled space and tap into Swimsuit’s wi-fi.
Using organic and fair-trade People’s beans, Swimsuit serves filter and specialty brews, plus standard pours such as flat whites. It has become something of a community hub on Dixon Street, and its Miramar location has followed suit, drawing Wētā Workshop contractors (the company has its base nearby), parents and their babies, and more.
Food-wise, they serve baguettes, pastries and toasted sandwiches, and plant-based options such as vegan watercress scones
