Here are five coffee spots I recently visited in Auckland. Each spot has great coffee so it's great to catch up with friends or to host meetings. This list is not in a particular order.
Located in Westfield Newmarket, Leafe offers a cool, spacious interior with lots of seats! They use Atomic coffee beans so expect good coffee every single time. In addition, they are popular for their cold brew, which comes in a stylish glass bottle that you can also take home.
2. Mojo (Bledisloe)
One of the familiar faces in New Zealand's coffee scene, you can find Mojo in many places, especially in Auckland and Wellington. However, just because there are many Mojo shops around, don't assume it is another cafe chain because Mojo takes their coffee very seriously. If you are a coffee lover, definitely visit Mojo.
One of the most well-known cafes in Auckland, Chuffed has been on Auckland's top cafe list for almost forever. Using Rocket coffee beans, coffee from Chuffed tastes absolutely amazing every single time. Find their hidden location on the High Street - follow the footpath and you will be surprised at Chuffed's spacious interior.
Located in Grey Lynn, Ozone's interior is big with a modern, industrial look. Not only do they offer many seats, but you can also sit right by their open kitchen where you can see all the actions taking place! Visit Ozone and try their own coffee blend - don't forget to grab something to eat from the menu also because their food is good!
5. Candy Shop
Possibly the best coffee in Newmarket, Candy Shop is definitely my personal favourite in the area. Coffee is made with Camper Coffee blend and the flat white is too good to pass! If you are ever in the area, do check out Candy Shop. In addition,
