Kitchen on Miro ~ 54 Miro St, Taupo

Our Story

In 2014, after 10 years in the New Zealand Army, Phil and Cara Constable moved their family from Palmerston North to Taupo, where soon after Cara decide to pursue her love of working with food and studied through Waiariki Institute of Technology.

At the completion of her studying Cara opened her small business part time in a shared kitchen, baking cakes and pastries and selling her hand crafted goods at The Taupo Market.

A short while later Phil and Cara bought a small lunch bar in the Taupo Industrial area, joined the two businesses together and grew it into what exists today - A busy Catering and Cakes  business, operating out of  a successful eatery on Miro Street, Taupo.

Since their founding in 2016, Constables has developed themselves as one of Taupo's leading names in quality food.

Led by Cara, they now have a  small team of foodies that not only takes delicious food seriously, but strives for customer service that is second to no one.

Specialising in handmade artisan pastries and sweet foods for workplace catering, clubroom catering, wedding canapes, handmade birthday and wedding cakes, they are guaranteed to have just what you are after, for whatever your occasion may be.

In 2018 Constables began providing take home chilled meals and in 2019 following an increased demand for buffet catering, Constables expanded their menu to include a simple, traditional homestyle buffet menu which is proving to be increasingly popular.

In 2020, Constables purchased the 'bite' food caravan which had been a long time local at all of Taupo's big events serving crowd favorite food items such as hot chips, pies, b&e muffins and coffee.

Following a refurb, and rebrand Phil and Cara have created a mobile eatery operating under the 'Constable' family name, which will continue to frequent the many events that Taupo has to offer, including Market Central on Sundays, where they are serving a selection of their favourite handmade baked goods plus the previously served hot food classics, as well as locally roasted Volcanic coffee.

Constables would love for you to become a part of their story.  Don't hesitate to get in touch if they can be of service to you.
