Whether you’re after carb-free, gluten-free, paleo, keto, low fat, high fat, or your standard hearty full Kiwi breakfast with all the fixings, you’re covered!
Our restaurateurs and artisan makers are savvy and creative, and many are award winners. Besides great dishes, they also whip up your fix of barista-made coffees. A great selection of specialty bakeries offer breads, pies, slices, donuts, cupcakes and more.
Support our locals on the weekend at the street markets where you can buy freshly made items like fry bread, donuts, ciabatta rolls, kebabs, chutneys, jams, honey and more, or grab breakfast, lunch or dinner from the food trucks.
