Feeling adventurous?

The creamy mushrooms at Major Sprout are next level, but if you feel like a side of surprise with your flat white, ask the staff for one of their ‘secret’ menu items.

Need a health hit?

If your busy schedule has you feeling less than vital, dose up on the good stuff with a turmeric latte from Little Bird Unbakery. The anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties will help you fend off any nasties.

Vegan or not, Mary’s sticky black rice with coconut cream and seasonal fruit is a breakfast dish that can’t be beat if you’re looking for something sweet. Plus, they’re now licensed! So head back up the hill later on for a cheeky lunchtime rosé.

Need to get on the caffeine buzz?

A caffeine hit from Eighthirty Coffee not only tastes incredible, but it’s deliciously strong too. The K Road store also carries sandwiches, salads, breakfast cups and more from Jess’ Underground Kitchen if you’re all about breakfast on the run.

Breakfast with a view?

By no means Auckland Central, you’ll have to commute just over 10 minutes out of the city to get to True Food and Yoga – but the small sacrifice is well worth it.
