Six places for great eggs

Eggs is eggs

Deco Eatery
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

Odettes
Herbed Scramble

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

Rosie
Soufflé

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
Turkish Eggs

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.  

397 Mt Eden Road, Mt Eden

Honey
Honey Baked Eggs and Beans

The baked eggs from Honey are a great option for the vegetarian egg-lover, served with homemade mixed beans, mozzarella, and toasted focaccia.

12 Huron St, Takapuna
