Visit our window
Our Eva Street window is no ordinary shop: it’s a hidden gem located in the heart of Wellington City where your nut butter dreams come true. There’s no big signage, so you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for our Peanut Butter flag to find us.
The space was originally the laundry room of the iconic Hannah Shoe Factory built in the 1930s. However, when we stumbled across it four years ago this part of the building was abandoned, neglected and in need of some serious TLC. We spent many late nights cleaning, scrubbing and painting to turn it into our little factory and we’re so proud of it. Our final act was to remove the steel bars that had been installed across the window, so we could talk to anyone who was curious enough to poke their nose in.
We’ve since moved our production equipment a stone’s throw down the road to Walter Street, but have held on to this little hole-in-the-wall so you can come and taste our nut butters, return used jars or buy fresh new ones, and eat delicious toast (with lots of toppings) and other seasonal offerings, such as porridge and smoothie bowls. Our menu is constantly changing but you can see our current line up below.
The factory was founded by Robert Hannah who learnt the cobbler trade in Ireland before emigrating to New Zealand in the 1800s where he began selling boots to gold prospectors on the West Coast of the South Island. In it’s heyday the shoe factory employed over 250 people and staff uniforms were washed and cleaned in what is now our little window space.

We believe in doing our bit for the environment which is why we’re big on reducing food waste, recycling and offer a public jar return at our window.
You can return your empty, clean F&F jars to us. We refill and reuse all the jars we can, and give a discount on refilled jars. We’re also now accepting back empty and clean 4kg pails which will be reused for charity donations. We don’t yet have the pail refills for sale, but hope to in the future!
