ST KEVINS AR­CADE, 183 KARANGAHAPE RD, K’RD PRECINCT

Metro Magazine NZ - - Feature -

Sit­u­ated next to a huge floor-to-ceil­ing win­dow look­ing onto My­ers Park, Emma Lyell and Tane Wil­liams’ sun-filled cafe has breathed new life into re­cently re­fur­bished St Kevins Ar­cade. Eighthirty espresso is served from a sun­shine-yel- low La Mar­zocco by equally sunny staff (fil­ter’s also avail­able), along­side a boun­ti­ful cab­i­net of home­baked cakes and pas­tries. Or­der from the menu for the full Bestie ex­pe­ri­ence (now with ta­ble ser­vice): com­fort­ing, homely clas­sics like fluffy hot­cakes and toasties get a classy re­make at the hands of head chef Nicola Standage.

BEST FOR: Break­fast with an ex­cel­lent view of the city. Eighthirty cof­fee

Bam­bina has been qui­etly com­mand­ing its spot on cut-throat Pon­sonby Rd for years, for good rea­son.
