Giles Luncheonette

This supremely good cafe serves some of the best coffee in town along with plenty of delicious eats and organic drinks.

The menu includes delicious options like lamb mince on toast, my mother in-law’s masala eggs, and baguettes. Plus a very tasty kahawhai and cress baguette for $9.50 and salads for $10 or $15 each. The free range eggs can be served with added extras like anchovy, a garden salad with harissa vinaigrette, black pudding, and bresaolo and the goats cheese and chive omelette definitely is worth trying too. 

The cafe has the feel of a great neighbourhood spot where the staff are friendly and learn your order after a few visits.
