Queu­ing for brunch is one in­ter­na­tional cafe trend Auck­land has been mer­ci­fully im­mune to. That was un­til Francesca Mazza and Aaron Car­son (pre­vi­ously of Lit­tle Sis­ter and Hello Friends + Al­lies) opened In­stafa­mous Wi­nona For­ever. Their for­mula for pop­u­lar­ity con­sists of elab­o­rately con­structed, rain­bow-coloured dishes, gar­gan­tuan home bak­ing, and quirky, sig­na­ture plates — from The Lady­boy prawn bene­dict to in­dul­gent French toast/Eton Mess mash-up Eton Ri­fle. Cru­cially, the food tastes as good as it looks, and the ser­vice is as ef­fi­cient as the queues re­quire it to be.

Must try— Sum­mer mush­room med­ley in a light or­ganic cream and herb sauce in a crêpe with toasted pine nuts and green salad.

Good for— The In­sta­gram op­por­tu­nity; stay for the lam­ing­tons.
