Auckland: Hello Friends and Allies

A brand new spanking cafe in the Auckland dining scene. It’s presence was welcomed with open arms by locals as we came to a full cafe on a busy Saturday morning and managed to take the last vacant seats on the long communal table.

From the former owners of Little Sister Cafe in Henderson, Hello Friends + Allies has been jazzed up with hanging pot plants, wooden table, colourful artwork and a cabinet filled with gorgeous goodies. The menu was extensive and has something for everyone, whether you are after a classic eggs benedict or a bircher museli. Pair this with a Coffee Supreme coffee or yummy smoothie and you’ve got a decent meal!

I ordered the grilled broccoli and baby carrot with poached eggs, sourdough and cheese, the dish was missing the puffed quinoa which was on the menu. The yolk was runny and gooey but the two shards of egg-shell was disappointing. My friend ordered the mushroom medley and they were happily swapped the poached eggs with delicious scrabbled eggs.

My cold brew coffee came with a side of magic milk which was a combination of condensed and regular milk. The size was very generous and one of the biggest serving of cold brew in the industry.

We had a pleasant meal at Hello Friends + Allies and it’s good to see a new local cafe in Epsom. With plenty of side street parking available, be sure to pop by and give it a try!
