Zany Zeus is the home of Scarlett Johannson’s favourite chocolate cake and arguably the world’s best halloumi.
Zany Zeus started out just supplying cafes and restaurants with their award-winning cheese, organic milk, cream and cultured products, and later opened a popular retail store just up the road from their factory. Being open Wednesday to Saturday reflects the fact they are a family-run business. Brother and sister Michael and Meropi are makers of boutique organic dairy products.
Sunny days on the weekend means you can expect a line out the door for their ice-creams and indulgent milkshakes. Their fan base of locals extends regularly to a real mix of travellers from around NZ and the world at their counter.
Using their own fresh organic milk and cream, Zany Zeus make their own sensationally good ice cream, which is only available at their Moera store along with to-die-for and very reasonably priced halloumi sandwiches. There's a range of delicious cabinet food, or grab some organic dairy to take home - their feta cheese and Greek yoghurt are cult classics.
Eating your way around town and discovering Zany Zeus products on the menu is perhaps your way of knowing the eatery you're at is serving quality food. Their products have certainly set new benchmarks.
