Food
“Amazing spot for some delicious French baking. There is a huge selection of savoury and sweet treats, all baked fresh each morning. You can get some breakfast on the run with a coffee or grab a few things for later. ”

Park
“This is one of Auckland's many volcanoes and provides stunning views back to the city and out west to the Waitakere ranges from the summit. The entire mountain is a dog-off-leash area so great if you're a dog person as there are often plenty of dogs and their owners running around. Its not too steep and has paved paths to walk on. Great for some fresh air and a little exercise.”

Bar
“Large amounts of Auckland was dry until only about 20 years ago, so as a result there are many suburbs without local pubs, which is common in other NZ cities. This is our closest local pub, it is up in the Three Kings Plaza Strip Mall. There is the Brass Boxer Sports bar which adjoins the Copper Thief bar and restaurant. It's reasonable, not amazing, but if you want something nice and close, this is the one.”

Restaurant
“Excellent sweet and sour pork, dumplings and the beef in spicy oil is great too. It is open late (about 11 to 12 pm) but is CLOSED ON TUESDAYS so don't get caught out (as we have). And they DO NOT TAKE CREDIT CARD. Also, if you are thinking of calling to make an order, don't bother. They make food when you are there.”
