3 Lorne St, Auckland, New Zealand
NileGuide Expert tip:
Best mushrooms on toast I've ever had. Dreamed about them while living abroad and it was the first thing I wanted when I got back to NZ.
This place has some great coffee and fantastic food. It's a mystery why it's not even more popular, but those who know it love it. Both breakfasts and lunches are good. The Israel plate is particularly popular but the salads and stacks in general are all good. Originally this was a kosher restaurant, or at least had kosher offerings, but it would be best to enquire first if you are looking for kosher food as I believe there has been a owner changeover in recent years. Take note that they are not open on Sundays as, bleary eyed and thinking of mushrooms on toast, one Sunday I was sadly caught out.
