Fitzroy

A great place to begin

Fitzroy village – a paved arcade of independent shops in the uber-cool surf-skate capital and coastal village of Fitzroy, New Plymouth - was Ozone Coffee Roasters’ first home. ‘Fitzy’ is bordered by the mighty Waiwhakaiho River out east, and some of the best town surf breaks in New Zealand. Beach ‘bach’ & holiday home style architecture is dotted carefully along the world renowned coastal walkway, allowing a lifestyle for Fitzroyites to connect to the ocean and city - the coast is its playground, and the envy of New Plymouth’s other suburbs. A great place to begin.
