Prior earthquake strengthening enabled the Lyttelton Coffee Company to undertake work to repair the damage caused to their 1924 building by the 22 February 2011 earthquake. The building was originally J D Bundy's Butchery. While the Lyttelton Coffee Company was under repair several staff created Samo, a temporary cafe which operated first from The Loons until that building was closed after the 13 June 2011 earthquakes. Since then they have served coffee and food from a converted garage below a house on Canterbury Street. In late 2013 the Samo website stated that when the Lyttelton Coffee Company’s premises are re-opened they intend to be “absorbed” into the operation.
