Hunter Gatherer isn’t your usual coffee shop name, but as soon as you walk in to this Southsea start-up, you realise that Hunter Gatherer is no usual coffee shop.
I caught up with Brian to see what we can expect"
You’ve discovered a huge and unique space! What have you got planned for it all?
"You can expect something a bit different from what currently exists. It started with Specialty Coffee and grew from there. In the near future we are hoping to start film screening nights, open up a space for business and large meetings and a few other bits we are keeping secret just for now. We want to create a space that inspires but also encourages interactions and shared experiences. Whether that be a meeting between friends, a community project, an art exhibition or a yoga class. Oh did we mention we have a family/buggy friendly space in the rear."
What can we expect to find on the menu?
"We like to think of ourselves as a vegetarian restaurant that serves bacon. We are aiming at 70% healthy and 30% naughty. Think free-rage poached eggs with a side of avocado on Bread Addiction sourdough, followed by the most decadent blondie you will ever taste."
Can you tell us a bit about your new team?
"Our team is without a doubt our greatest asset and the soul of our business. We are a small team that shares a passion for great food, decent coffee & local and sustainable business. Each one of us brings a different talent to the table and we love that about our dynamic."
If you only had 5 words, how would you sum up the vibe at Hunter Gatherer?
"Friendly, creative, healthy, quality, and soulful"
Opening Hours: 9am – 5pm Tuesday – Saturday / 9am – 4pm Sunday
