Coffee & Cake


I am German, so yes: I love coffee & cakes and I can bake! I thought I should start to review some coffee shops in New Zealand, because I am checking them out anyway. The thing is, that it is pretty easy to find fancy café shops in New Zealand, but most of the time you gonna be a bit disappointed after having your first bite of a piece of cake that coasts you between 4 – 8 $. The stuff is often to sweet… The locations are individuel and comfy (otherwise I wouldn’t give it a try), so I hope every shop owner can deal with the critique, if I am complaining. Thank you and please invite me for a cup of coffee and a cake (again), because we share a passion!

What can you do, but having coffee & crepe on a stormy day on an island? Nothing really and that is why I had a really sweet moment in that Kiwi-French Crepery.

I had a great Chocolate Supreme at Moxies and this cafe is located on one of the nicest streets I was able to found in this ghost-kind-of-town.

Perfect spot before or after your walk arround Gittos Domain / Blockhouse Bay, because this café is located on Blockhouse Bay Road and you can get one of the best pieces of cake there, that I was able to find in Auckland. Rhubarb Crumble Combo olé and a big Latte for 10 $!

Very nice place one Ponsonby Road in Auckland. Perfect spot to relaxe after a long walk and you will enjoy to observe the atmosphere arround you. I paid 10 $ and would say: they coffee was good and the cake very sweet, but toped with a great espresso icing .
