Today I visited a lovely vegan friendly cafe in Mt Eden by the name of The Midnight Baker. For the first hour or so, I enjoyed a good book while enjoying the cafe’s famous Freedom Loaf – a wholesome seeded bread high in protein, fibre & good fats – with spiced cookie almond butter, and a warm turmeric latte. Deceived by how little the toasts looked, I found them incredibly filling & nourishing! When my friend joined me for lunch, we had the red velvet latte, an Earl Grey tea, toasted banana bread and deconstructed ‘pulled pork’ tacos.

The ‘pulled pork’ part? It actually consists of jackfruit adobo, salsa, slaw, and an amazing vegan aioli I mistook for sour cream. (It was so delicious I asked for extra aioli.) The warm, rustic decor of the cafe along with wooden furniture & greenery added to the homely atmosphere. I’m happy to have found a spot perfect for healthy & natural food, or even simple, cosy mornings with a good book and a warm latte. 

PS. My experience was made even better by the fact that the cafe was playing this song during my visit. Rest in Peace Mac Miller. ❤

Delicious brunch and sunshine is definitely my favourite way to spend a Sunday morning. Last Sunday, my partner, future sister-in-law and I had a psychic moment when we all decided on the same cafe at the same time: Honey Cafe in Takapuna! The gorgeous beachside suburb is one of my favourite places in the world, so today I’d love to share with you my thoughts on just one of their amazing eateries.

Last Sunday was the most gloriously sunny, perfect day, one I spent eating delicious food, discovering a gorgeous new beach, and watching a movie with my love. Our day started mid-morning at Major Tom, a hot new cafe in Albany. By the same minds behind Hello Friends & Allies and Winona Forever, it featured their signature fun and vibrant style. I especially loved the artsy wall murals!
