Made with wunderlust

Newzedge editor Jane Nye, 33, and her partner Paul Milne, 44, have opened a New Zealand-influenced café in Berlin. Antipodes is reviewed in the latest issue of Exberliner, the German capital’s foremost English-language magazine. “Last spring Nye and Milne packed up lives in Wellington to set down roots in Berlin. Inspired by wanderlust and a desire to leave behind a traumatic attack Nye suffered while living in Cambodia a few years prior, they travelled light. [Antipodes] is a tiny, cosy space on a side street off Schönhauser Allee, a coffee shop and snack bar they’ve enthused with New Zealand affability and a blessing in this greying, cold city. What they serve is rather pleasing too: great coffee — top-notch compared to bog-standard Segafredo — on a java menu includ[ing] New Zealand novelties such as the flat white and long black.”
