A Cup of Auckland
Collected by Guy Needham, AFAR Local Expert
Aucklanders can't seem to function without their morning coffee fix, and come weekends it extends into brunch. Whether a cappuccino at their regular or an Americano worth driving for, every Aucklander has a favorite they swear by. Just don't try to talk to them before that first coffee...

487 New North Rd, Kingsland, Auckland 1021, New Zealand
It's not often that people travel for coffee, but I know more than one person who goes out of their way to get to Roasted Addiqtion—and it's not even near their work. Probably Kingsland's most celebrated cafe, this is a serious coffee place for...
33 Vulcan Lane, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
I get the same every time. I really should branch out but it's just so good! Firstly a cappuccino, followed by the Smashed Avocado - avocado mixed with feta cheese on toast, with a beautifully poached egg on top and bacon on the side. It really is...
Shop 20 St Kevin Arcade 179/183 Karangahape Rd, Ponsonby, Auckland 1010, New Zealand

33-45 Hurstmere Rd, Takapuna, Auckland 0622, New Zealand
Everything on this menu is organic, yummy and fresh. It's located just off one of Takapuna's busier streets but it opens out onto a green leisure area which makes sipping a macchiato all that more pleasant in the mornings. Although if coffee isn't...

49 Victoria Rd, Devonport, 0624, New Zealand
You may have to cross a harbour to taste it but oh boy, the coffee at Manuka will give you a shot. This café has been around for years and every time I'm in Devonport I make a point of getting coffee there, even if in a recyclable takeaway...
85 Tamaki Dr, Mission Bay, Auckland 1071, New Zealand
Mission Bay Café happens to be in one of Auckland's prettiest suburbs, a bonus for locals and a nice treat for you. They're located on the main road just under the movie theatre so there's no reason why you couldn't watch the latest release...
