Enjoy the taste of Bunsen at home:


Bunsen opened in November 2016 with a bang and a roar and is fast becoming a top destination for locals and tourists alike.

Located in the heritage Clock Tower building of the Arts Centre we have taken inspiration from the history of the building and created a chemistry den style establishment.

Bunsen specialises in the perfect cup of coffee Pour-over and Espresso using our own blend The Dark Horse.

Bunsen is a licenced venue and we serve a variety of New Zealand wines, beers and cider.

We serve a full brunch menu that we adapt with the seasons, daily-changing specials and also a fully stocked cabinet for lighter meals, sweet treats and options for those on the go.

There are four different areas for seating; the sun-drenched courtyard on Worcester Boulevard where you can watch the Tram roll by; the upstairs mezzanine area which is perfect for large groups and functions; our downstairs area where you can be a part of the buzz; and a couple of highly sought after tables in the North Quad of the Art Centre, perfect for soaking up the beautifully restored heritage buildings.
