Behind the immaculately restored facades of Britomart’s heritage buildings are modern fit outs and some of Auckland’s hippest restaurants, bars and cafes. Keep it casual with artisan French pastries and great coffee, or indulge in contemporary cuisine and cocktails. Pop into the burger bar or the dumpling bar; go out for Vietnamese or dive into tasty Mexican sharing plates. This is also where you’ll find some of our best designer shopping, including Chanel and Tiffany & Co.
From luxurious fine dining to New York Deli dishes, gourmands will find style and substance in equal measure here. One of Auckland’s newer foodie precincts, a number of the eateries feature renowned chefs, including Al Brown, Peter Gordon, Sean Connolly and Nic Watt. Indulge in freshly shucked oysters, authentic tapas, exquisite Italian, Japanese robata or contemporary New Zealand cuisine.
City Works Depot is a cool collection of quirky, casual eateries in a revamped industrial area. Enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch at the award-winning all-day bistro, nibble on wood-fired bagels from Al Brown’s Best Ugly, find a healthy take on fast food at The Food Truck, or kick back with a craft beer at Brothers Beer brewery. And there’s plenty more on that list.
