16. Crave

In celebration of Auckland Restaurant Month, I will be posting 31 quick-fire reviews on 31 restaurants and cafes in the Auckland CBD and city fringe.



The atmosphere is…
The neighbourly cafe you always wished for. A lofty space with lots of seating areas and local artwork. Edibles planted in front are a nice touch.

Come here for…
A well deserved brunch by a well-meaning bunch.

The most interesting thing on the menu…

  • Black rice risotto

Unexpectedly wonderful…

  • Crave’s community ethos and non-profit business practices.

I would come back to try…

  • Creamy herbed flat mushrooms on potato cakes

Catering to…
Everyone. Gluten free and vegetarian dishes clearly marked. Very kid friendly.

Expect to spend…
$20 per person. Please note, kids flufflies are free.

The service is…
A bit rushed during busy periods. At the counter only.

Avoid if…
You don’t like feel-good neighbourhood spots. Oscar the grouch can eat elsewhere.
