After eight years in the business Michael and Ann Wang of Calypso café will be calling it a day at the end of July this year.
While Michael and Ann are sad to be leaving Devonport, they will always have immensely positive memories of the place. “We are just so grateful to all our Devonport regulars who have kept coming back and continued supporting us over the years” said Michael.
“Our children will always think of this as home; in fact, whenever we go back to China, after a couple of weeks they always ask; ‘Dad, when are we going home?’ We never forget to appreciate what a wonderful place New Zealand is, and within New Zealand, what a special community Devonport is.”
Michael was also magnanimous about the travails he and Ann experienced last year with their neighbours at Zest. “It was a one-off thing; it was not a campaign against us or anything. Everyone has bad days.”
As a small thanks to those who supported Calypso Café over the years, Michael and Ann would like to offer a “Buy one coffee, get one free” deal to anyone visiting Calypso between now and the end of the month.
There’s just one rule however. “You’ve got to mention The Devonport Speculator” says Michael.
The Speculator – who highly rates Ann’s barista skills – is delighted to be associated with the Calypso Café, and wishes Michael, Ann and family all the best for the future. See you in there!
