From its trendy interesting interior, thoroughly enthusiastic staff and funky arrangement you move onto the drinks and food. So damn hard to choose - its overwhlemingly good. The kimchi pancakes were recommended by our waiter, so I was led to agree - they were fresh zingy with flavor and really fulling. My mocha was a lovely strong chocolate flavour. Most... More

Organic (mostly), raw, tasty, friendly. If you are after quality vegan please, the unbakery will be great choice for you. Cons: Organic, tasty, friendly, quality food. Cons: Busy, some items are too expensive for what it is (e.g. Iced coffee $14), often inconsistent quality (iced coffee milkshake one day rich, thick and other days watery, place and tasteless for $14...

Wow. The entrance belies the massive space inside, nicely appointed and very bright. Greeted by a cheerful wait team member you are ushered to the great tables and given the voluminous menu. Looking through the pages the descriptions create the desired result; salvation. Looking at the dishes around on the busy tables the choices confuse and you want them all.... More

We sought out this place on the recommendation of family and friends and after finding the small side street where the cafe unobtrusively sits, sat down to a truly surprising lunch of one taste explosion after another. Of course it helps one's perception of any meal to be quite hungry, but that's kind of the point! I have long been... More

We always look for gluten free options, as my husband is Celiac. This is our fav place for brunch in the whole of Auckland. Their menu is really creative, which is true of NZ cuisine, and the deserts are so delicious that you feel like you should have worn your yoga pants, not just to fit in with the crowd,... More

A little birdie told us food should be three things:mostly raw, definitely organic and full of goodness. So here at little bird we do just that and with all that combined, the result is pure deliciousness. Why raw? Raw foods are in their purest state- no heating above 46'C. This ensures the food retains all its enzymes and nutrients and its life force, which means every bite contain more goodness for your body. Organic foods are grown without harmful chemicals. No chemicals in the food means no chemicals in your food or environment. Goodness, because food should be good for you, packed with all the nutrition you need to feel fabulous. Goodness tastes good too. We are completely gluten and dairy free and proudly serve plant based menus that suit vegans, vegetarians and healthy minded people looking for an easy way to include more goodness and nutrition in their diet.
