Where to get great eggs in Aucklandby Kate Milliken
Five places for great eggs
Eggs is eggs
Breakfast in Turkey
In keeping with owner Alex Isik’s ancestry, the menu here has a strong Turkish influence. The Breakfast in Turkey is a great example of this, with scrambled eggs accompanied by feta, Turkish pide and some of New Zealand’s finest produce, including mānuka honey and locally-grown Kalamata olives.
418 Titirangi Rd, Titirangi
True to Odette’s local, produce-driven menu, head chef Jonah Huang believes in maximising taste by adding modern twists to classic dishes – like jazzing up his exceptionally well-cooked scrambled eggs with broccolini and haloumi.
City Works Depot, 90 Wellesley St, central city
Situated next to the Parnell Rose Gardens, Rosie – like all Hipgroup outfits – is committed to sourcing the freshest ingredients from the group’s Kumeu farm. That means the menu changes often. Fingers crossed that the twice-baked soufflé with asparagus, black garlic and a decadent cured egg yolk is on offer when you visit.
82 Gladstone Rd, Parnell
Queenies is a Ponsonby institution, all ivy-covered and positioned just out of the hustle and bustle of the main strip. Their Turkish eggs served with baba ganoush, yoghurt and chilli butter are a great way to enjoy your morning poachers with a twist.
24A Spring St, Freemans Bay
The Return of Rad Cafe
Omelette Exhibit ‘A’
This generous folded omelette is an exhibition of classic flavour combinations; roast pumpkin, pine nuts and sharp cheese with a side of chutney and sourdough toast.

Honey Baked Eggs and Beans
