New Zealand healthy foodie spots

February 21, 2018

So I have spent the last month in an absolute health foodies dream! I have honestly had the best brunches imaginable, the best coffee ever…. My brunch taste buds have been well and truly spoilt and I am not sure how I will go back to eating overnight oats in Tupperware on the regular!

I knew Aussie brunch was the one, but I had no idea that the NZ brunch scene was a close competitor! If you find yourself travelling around NZ (lucky you!) then here are a few of the spots that I was lucky enough to try…

Corellis Café Devonport

Where? 46 Victoria Rd, Devonport, Auckland 0624, New Zealand

The verdict? I actually came here for dinner instead of brunch, but the brunch menu looks equally fantastic! We couldn’t decide what to order so we shared a few dishes… it was amazing!

What did I eat? Bang Bang chicken sala, Poke Bowl, Budda Bowl, Kumara chips

Orange Frog

Where? Selwyn Rd, Paihia 0200, New Zealand

The verdict? Not the most aesthetic place to sit in… but the food doesn’t disappoint!

What did I eat? The smoothie bowl and a matcha latte!

The Chop Shop

Where? Arrow Ln, Arrowtown 9302, New Zealand

Verdict? Beautiful! Sit outside!

What did I eat? Turkish eggs with a side of black pudding, almond milk latte


Where? 14 Churchstreet, Queenstown, New Zealand

The verdict? The most instagrammable breaky ever! Totally amazing! Can I go back?

What did I eat? The Kimchi Bowl with an added fried egg, beetroot latte

Bespoke Kitchen

Where? 9 Isle St, Queenstown, 9300, New Zealand

The verdict? I want everything on the menu!

What did I eat? Wellbeing salad with an extra egg! I also managed to try my friends Breakfast Board and Hash – both amazing choices too!

Mondays Wholefoods

Where? 503 New North Road, Kingsland, Auckland 1021, New Zealand

Verdict? Beautiful outdoor seating, not what you’d expect from outside location!

What did I eat? Smashed avo on zuchinni fritter


Where?  6 Morningside Dr, Morningside, Auckland 1025, New Zealand

Verdict? Fabulous! Environmentally and community friendly!

What did I eat? The Rossmay (smoked & spiced roasted aubergine, maple bacon, potato hash, pesto greens & a poached egg) with a charcoal latte!

If you have anymore to add to my list, please tell me – I fully intend to go back!
