After months of being takeaway-only, Auckland cafes are finally reopening to dine-in customers.
Nigel Cottle, the manager of Morningside's Crave Cafe, told Mike Hosking he hopes things will get a little bit more normal.
“We are super pumped to be a place that people can connect together again.”
He said the new rules are likely to create a bit of controversy.
Cottle said the need to show proof of vaccination will make some people angry and confused, but will give others peace of mind.
