The Best Cafes
You do realise that you're spoilt for choice living in Auckland right? There are dozens and dozens of fantastic cafes spread throughout the city offering everything from early morning breakfasts to late afternoon grazing. From great coffee to perfect eggs and sensational baking, we've somehow managed to pick 7 of the best:
Cafe On Kohi
2 / 237 Tamaki Drive, Auckland
One of the best outdoor cafe spots in Auckland - there's nothing like sipping coffee watching the world go by with Rangitoto as your background. Cafe on Kohi does everything right, not least of which is great friendly service. You instantly want to come back. Oh and did we mention that the food is fantastic? We're big fans of the Big Healthy - think a regular big breakfast but good for you.

Kokako Cafe and Roastery
537 Great North Road, Auckland, 1150
Winner of the best use of an old post office, Kokako is bright, always busy and has fantastic food and coffee to match. We're always swayed by the organic gluten-free pancakes, but their lunch menu is just as good. Seriously, you'l forget that everything's vegetarian.

Scullery
166 Karangahape Road, Auckland
One of the newest cafes in Auckland, and instantly one of the best. A simple but bright fit out, mixed with friendly staff, some great shakes and an impossible to choose from menu make this a winner in our books. A secret - I've gone back to the same dish every time I've been. The fried wild rice with feta and almonds could possibly be the cafe dish of the year.

Takapuna Beach Cafe & Store
22 The Promenade, Auckland, 0622
Winner of so many Best Cafe awards, it's getting silly, but it's praise that's deserved. Another cafe with a great view, if you can get a table then you're in for a treat. Try the bacon and poached eggs with toasted brioche, or the battered fish burger with black bun. Oh and don't think you'll be able to pass the gelato on the way out. My pick - lemon curd with a dash chocolate honeycomb.

Little King Cafe
132 Kitchener Road, Auckland
The secret is out - the suburb of Milford lays claim to one of the best cafes in the land. It may be noisy but once you start tucking into their divine menu options, the last thing you'll be thinking about is acoustics.

RAD Cafe
367 Mount Eden Road, Auckland
In a region that boasts over a thousand cafes it's increasingly hard to be original but Mt Eden's newest resident pulls this off with aplomb. Fantastically-friendly staff sporting denim aprons, superb Flight coffee and the food...there's a 100 word limit on these feature slots don't you know!
