Kim Evans is the creative genius behind the Little & Friday cafés in Auckland. A sculptor by training, she is a self-taught cook who started selling home-baked goodies at the Takapuna Market. The demand quickly grew to the point that she needed a commercial-sized kitchen, which she sited in a disused shop in Belmont. Before long she added a shop counter and opened first one, then two, then four days a week. Within a year it got so busy she took over the shop next door and became a fully-fledged six days a week café. Now she has two bustling Little & Friday cafés open in Newmarket and Ponsonby and a never-ending stream of adoring customers.
