Brunch at Parade Cafe

27 Jan 2011

Brunch is a common and popular pastime for us kiwis and something I think we do quite well.  Eggs scrambled, fried, poached, Benedict and all it’s variations (Florentine, Benetine, Royale… etc.), french toast, pancakes, hash browns, sausages, grilled tomatoes, grilled mushrooms, corn fritters… we do it all!  And with a fabulous cup of coffee on the side.  Love it!

Parade Cafe is a known and loved brunch time favourite in the scenic oceanside location of Oriental Bay in Wellington.  After being kicked out of their former location to make way for upmarket apartments, they moved across the road to former restaurant The Tugboat.

Maranui Cafe

17 Dec 2010

Wellington is well known for its vibrant and happening café scene.  One such locale that has become practically legendary amongst Wellingtonians is Maranui Cafe.

Located in the coastal suburb of Lyall Bay within the same building as the Maranui Surf Life Saving Club, disaster struck when the interior of the building was destroyed by fire in August 2009.  Fortunately after a huge, heart warming wave of community support, both the club and cafe were both restored in May 2010 and have since come bouncing back, better than ever! Hurrah!
