The combination of beautiful weather and the long weekend took us all the way to Takapuna where we had lunch at Jam Organic Cafe. Next to a small reserve on Hurstmere Road, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a healthy organic meal with a fresh juice or smoothie.
The chicken salad with avocado and mango chutney was jam-packed with ingredients and the mango chutney was superb. A nice combination of wide rocket, free range chicken breast, grilled holloumi, ripe avocado, kumara crisps and roasted almonds. The jam style eggs on home-made bacon hash on free range bacon was just what I was after. Despite running out of hollandaise sauce, the tomato jam replacement was just as good and the runny poached eggs kept the nice adequately moist. The bacon and cheese croissants was accompanied with a side of leafy salad and chutney, toasted to perfection.
