Relax Take Some Thyme Out!

A warm, welcoming concept cafe nestled in the heart of Manukau; The Station was previously home to the Papatoetoe Fire Department before Youthline Manukau moved in.

The building has maintained much of its fire service past, most notably with the presence of Little Flick, the antique fire engine! 

There are other hints of history throughout the building too: a bold red colour scheme, ladder light fixtures, a collection of historical objects fire fighting objects, and of course the café itself – The Station. 

We roll up the classic fire hall garage doors and let the sun shine in from 7:30am on weekdays and 8am on Saturdays. It’s a fun, vibrant spot to visit – whether you’re grabbing a flat white on the run or enjoying a leisurely brunch with friends (we recommend the homemade toasted muesli, or our classic Fire Engine Brekkie!)

At the heart of Youthline Manukau, The Station is a bustling community hub and a great place to meet, eat, and learn about upcoming community events. 

Stop by to have a peek, grab a coffee and say hello!
