Time for a lovely cup of java.
It’s officially spring in New Zealand, so it’s time to (safely) get out and about. A coffee in the wonderful Auckland sun is definitely a good place to start. And, in Ponsonby there’s an abundance of great cafes to suit all your needs. Here are some of the top spots we can recommend. [Featured Image: duncan c, Flickr].
A classy Ponsonby establishment, experts in the craft of eye-catching, delicious coffee and grub. Think colourful, sugary desserts; a mean breakfast range littered with egg and avocado options; and some mouthwatering Italian main dishes.
📍 268 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby, 1011
2. Salta Espresso Cafe
Just like Bambini, Salta Espresso sits in a wonderful location, right on Ponsonby Road. But, most importantly, Salta’s food and coffee game is worth championing. We can confirm that their Masala Eggs, with a cup of Joe, sat in their beautiful courtyard is euphoric. Give us that any day of the week, please.
📍 285 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby, 1011
3. Cafe Cezanne
Another one of Ponsonby Road’s finest establishments, combining paintings (hence the name) with artistic food and coffee. Devour a freshly baked cake or tuck into a fine Spanish omelette or stack of pancakes. But, remember the coffee. Never forget the coffee.
📍 296 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby, 1011
4. Dizengoff Ponsonby
A local favourite and top spot to grab some of New Zealand’s finest quiches! Dizengoff serves a Jewish-influence cuisine, along with some delicious light snacks and Instagram-worthy coffee designs.
📍 256 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby, 1011
Allpress is a space designed to bring the community together with their exquisite roasted coffee. Grab yourself an espresso blend or origin filter and be transported to coffee heaven, seriously. Allpress even hold coffee classes after hours for enthusiasts to learn the practice in the art of preparing the glorious beans!
📍 266 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby, 1011
6. Fusion Cafe
