Our Story

We are a small takeaway cafe located in the heart of the central north island, under Mount Ruapehu.  We specialise in coffee and cold-pressed Juice served out of our 1966 VW Kombi van.

Kombi Ohakune was established in the 2018 winter season.  The idea was to balance our work with embracing the amazing lifestyle that this region has to offer.  From day one of Kombi Ohakune, our definition of “living the dream” has been to pump out delicious coffees and juices in the morning, snowboard in the middle of the day, and then when people come off the mountain, all tired and full of good energy, be back at our little cafe sharing the good vibes and making coffees late into the afternoon.

We’ve had a lot of fun along the way with regular "Kombi Take Overs" at the ski town's most popular pubs.  These retro-themed parties, with good music all night long, have been loved by many- especially us!  If you ever get a chance to go to a "Kombi Take Over", try one of our famous "Espresso Martinis" or a "Super Juice Cocktail" infused with Tequila or Vodka.

Now, after four winter seasons, our little takeaway cafe is a permanent fixture in the heart of Ohakune; we love making coffee and juices out of our 1966 Kombi all year round.
