Auckland, say hello to your new favourite brunch spots

Who doesn't love to brunch? We do, and we’re sure you do too! Breakfast, brunch and lunch, surely the best meals of the day especially if there's an all-day menu. Did you know that First Table isn’t just the first table of the night?

Here’s a bunch of brunch spots in Auckland to get you started.

Mr and Mrs Bistro

Founded by a newlywed Mr. and Mrs. with a life-long dream of opening their own restaurant, Mr and Mrs bistro is their love letter to the beautiful city of Auckland. Eggs on toast, eggs Benedict, the Mrs pancakes with mascarpone cheese and berry compote, brunchy burgers and the almighty Mr and Mrs Big breakfast, their casual-European-Kiwi-inspired brunch is the perfect start to the day. 

Wander Cafe, Auckland Brunch restaurants Eatery at Rothesay Bay

Eatery at Rothesay Bay is a zen hideaway, with a deck that has to be seen to be believed. Recharge with views over native bush and out to the sea and enjoy breakfast or a midday bite, and fully connect with nature.  Nothing hits the spot quite like Eatery's range of eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, streaky bacon, grilled halloumi or smashed avo. If you're settling in for lunch, welcome the afternoon in with a juicy beef burger, lamb ragout Fettucine, chicken Bahn Mi or fish and chips. Finally, a coffee and happiness is restored.

Hello Stranger

Hello Stranger is no stranger to Instagram-worthy meals, brunch classics, and lunchy lunches. Breakfast is an all day affair, with the Hello Stranger twist on classics. Pecan pie pancakes, peanut butter and jelly porridge, fried chicken and waffles, is your stomach rumbling yet? For something more lunchy, get your hands on the sticky satay chicken burger, steak and eggs, or the magic mushrooms!  The tea menu is plentiful, choose from special flavors such as white chilli truffle, maple walnut of jasmine pearl, and of course did someone say coffee? 

Auckland Brunch restaurant, Cafe Botannix Albany

Cafe Botannix Albany

Making the most of their tranquil garden-centre location, Cafe Botannix is a green paradise that is far removed from the city's hustle and bustle. Who doesn’t love an eggs benny with anything from smoked salmon to grilled halloumi and smashed avo, or taste the Mediterranean with a Spanish open omelette with chorizo, subdued tomatoes and mozzarella. For the sweet tooths, indulge in French toast or a good-for-the-soul bowl of coconut porridge.
