Brunching and booze are a match made in heaven – one of the only things that Aucklanders can agree upon. But, when in search for the perfect spot to combine your joint love of a superb eggs bene and mimosas, where is one to go? Thankfully, Dish Cult has got you sorted – having done the arduous task of searching high and low for brunching spots, the best of the best has been found for you. Your search is now over – here are the best places to spend your sunny and boozy mornings.
The Lula Inn
There is no other restaurant that could precede this hallmark spot. Bringing the idea to the masses with their ridiculously popular ‘Bottomless Brunches’, Lula’s is the place to be. If in doubt, then endless glasses of cocktails will fix that pout! The best part? Every weekend morning you can indulge, with their bottomless brunch specials. Accompanied by views of Princes Wharf and some fantastic local food and music, an early morning wakeup on a Saturday never sounded so good.
Swap out a view of the viaduct for something a little more local with Marina Cantina, one of the brightest stars in Half Moon Bay’s budding culinary constellation. Offering some of the most divine fish tacos in the area, pair their Mexican cuisine with endless amounts of bubbles or even some sangria! End your weekend on the right note with deals on bottomless brunches/lunches from 11:30am to 3:30pm on Sundays.
If the hustle and bustle of some of the busier options on this list does not entice you, perhaps Mikano may be a safe bet. Perched near the Ports of Auckland, diners at Mikano can enjoy uninterrupted views of the Hauraki Gulf. Relax in the décor heavily inspired by the lounges of New York, Mikano offers a bottomless brunch special for only $39! Boasting an unlimited supply of cocktails accompanied by an entrée, Mikano offers the added flexibility of having bottomless brunches every day of the week from 12:00pm-3:00pm.
Tom Tom Bar and Eatery
Located amongst culinary heavyweights that reside in the Victoria Park area (think: La Zeppa, HANSIK, Hello Mister), Tom Tom works hard to stand out. With unparalleled rooftop views of the Victoria Park area and central city, this elevates the idea of a bottomless brunch – literally. You can grab a full English breakfast with a side of endless hair of the dog cocktails – all for $45. Running from 11:00am to 3:00pm, the deal is guaranteed to send your weekend out in the right way.
Wu & You
Mt Eden – the home of Dominion Road, dumplings and now, a serious contender on the boozy brunch scene. That’s right, every Saturday and Sunday between 11:00am and 1:30pm, you can get endless bubbles alongside Wu & You's fabulous menu for only $49! A wise saying from the restaurant themselves – “save water, drink cocktails”! Responsibly, of course.
