Good times boosts Kiwi café culture

Poo in the panini – but whose?

The biggest problem with naming and shaming? Getting it wrong.

And it’s hard to imagine a more unholy stuff-up than consumer program Target incorrectly naming an Auckland cafe as having faecal matter in its food.

Last Tuesday’s (16 June) show featured an undercover camera examining the hygiene standards of various Auckland cafes where food was purchased and sent away for lab testing.

One sample showed a high reading of faecal coliform, or tiny particles of human excrement, which came from the venerable Auckland institution of cafe Cezanne in Ponsonby.
