It’s kind of breakfast, but also kind of lunch…it’s brunch! The perfect meal to have on the weekend after your well-deserved sleep in. We’ve scoured the entire country to bring you a list of the best brunch places in New Zealand.


1. Sip Kitchen

Fine, fresh, fierce, they’ve got it on lock! Check out their ‘Breakfast Pot’, an Acai Berry jam mixed with peanut butter chia pudding, coconut yogurt and granola – start your morning off with a bang!

2. The Blue Belle Cafe

A twist on traditional dishes! The ‘Stockman Pie’ is mouth watering steak and cheese pastry delight with extra peppers for a burst of flavour!

3. Garden Shed

Mouth-watering burgers that you’ll never stop thinking about! The Shed Burger, a haloumi and avocado combo with lettuce, tomato, mustard, pickles, onions rings and ketchup…are you salivating yet?

4. Catrouz Cafe

A hidden gem amongst cafe’s, the braised beef cheek quesadilla is favourite amongst diners! With organic black beans, manchego, sriracha sour cream and guacamole – this Mexican inspired dish is perfection.

5. Fidel’s Cafe

Two words: Chicken waffles. Crispy and golden chicken on top of fluffy and light waffles, need we say more?

6. Queen Sally’s Diamond Deli

If you only eat gluten free, this is the place to head!

7. The Shack – Raglan

There’s a little something here for everybody down at The Shack! Our favourite is ‘The Roti’ – it’s got chicken, bacon, potato, bread and cheese (basically the five main food groups, right?)
