Our Story

Lykke  /leur-kah/ (n.) A Danish word describing a state of  absolute happiness


Lykke is a love for Grey Roasting coffee, a fusion of delicious Kiwi-Danish food, and a space you can come to relax in. Accompanied by Little, a shop of homewares and indoor plants hand grown by Juliet – it reflects all the ‘Little’ things that bring joy in day to day life. Lykke is happiness in Hamilton.


Inspired by the Danish notion of Lykke and the dream of creating a space that reflected this – Malcolm and Juliet (and of course their girls, Eloise & Addison) began the journey of Lykke. Neither venturing from the world of hospitality, they each brought with them a love for caffeine and a plant addiction. And then the community came together too. As each team member has joined this journey, they brought with them each of their own skills and expertise to build what Lykke is today.

Happiness comes from our community. In the coming together of people and moments, enjoying the small pleasures in life. In the smell of a morning coffee, in tasting a mouthwatering bite of food, in watching a loved one smile. Happiness is Lykke, and we are happiness.
