Mate Factor Cafe

Located in the historic Home Dairy building down on the Commons, The Maté Factor is as much a spot for community building as it is a haven for maté tea drinkers. Maté, a traditional tea from South America which is customarily drunk among friends, is the drink of choice at this rustically decorated café, and with over 20 different variations, there’s plenty to satisfy everyone. Along with your tea, you can also sample from their café menu, which features fresh wraps, sandwiches and smoothies using local ingredients and produce from their own gardens!
