Organic Cafes in Auckland

Eating out healthily

I am always looking to try new healthy options cafes.

My favourite organic cafe in the past was Jam Organic Cafe, Hurstmere Road Takapuna, mainly because I lived nearby and liked their food. Unfortunately I went there again today 24th April and the music was too loud (my hearing aids play havoc), the BLAT bagel was dry and “so-so”, and the cappuccino coffee burnt my tongue. Sorry but I will not be going there again. It must be that the ageing hippie in me has lost momentum.

I do like Little & Friday in Eversleigh Road Hauraki. Everything so fresh and wholesome.

I tested an organic cafe in Milford a few weeks back called Crossroads. Its eclectic and covers vegetarian, organic, and gluten-free dishes, among others. Verdict: very wholesome organic food – I had a chia seed quinoa salad and it was super.
Cnr Milford Road and Kitchener Road Milford.

In Grey Lynn on Richmond road is a little organic Gem of a cafe, its called the Ripe Deli. Love their food for take aways.
