There are a lot of great cafes in Grey Lynn and Ponsonby area and here, let me introduce you to another one, Chillout Cafe, located on 38 Ponsonby Road.
They serve coffee made with Aoraki Coffee and some of the most colourful, well-presented dishes in Auckland's cafe scene. And of course, the food tastes great also.
Their Waffle Belgium is sweet, fruity and chocolatey - almond panna cotta, berry compote, seasonal fruits, Oreo crumbs, honey baked granola and Nutella.
Chillout Cafe has many loyal customers in the area and you can find many people heading here for a weekend brunch adventure or just a coffee + croissant run.
Pictured below is the Chilli Scramble Egg: smoked salmon, cauliflower, fried shallot, siracha mayo, paprika oil and croissant.
They are also famous for house-made sodas, which you should definitely try! My personal favourite flavour is the Golden Kiwi & Cucumber soda.
And of course, you can expect beautiful-looking eggs benedict here at Chillout.
Pictured below is the Moorish Omelette: diced chorizo, mushroom, sundried tomato, shallot, feta, mozzarella and ciabatta.
They are closed during the lockdown currently but make sure to visit them once the situation settles down.
Coffee is very good also.
