For those days when Netflix and snuggles with your cat seems more important than putting shoes on and walking to food or, that last sav which seemed like a swell idea, has just kicked you to the curb and hunger strikes, you’ve got to look for alternative ways of getting fed.
Luckily the days where we have to cook our own grub—let alone leave the comfort of our pjs to leave the house—are over. Food delivery is a saving grace to all.
And so, to keep your bellies happy and full, we have rounded up some of Auckland’s best food delivery to save you in your time of need. We can’t do the dialing for you though!
Famed for their outlandish burger creations (mac ’n’ cheese, we’re looking at you), homemade Jewish style bagels, poutine you won’t want to share and an ever changing selection of homemade, saucy doughnuts, Al’s Deli is an ideal choice. With locations in the city and Kingsland, you could definitely go and dine in, but with delivery as an option, you’d be silly not to take advantage. Delivering to nearby suburbs such as Ponsonby, Grey Lynn and Parnell, minimum delivery charges may apply but the team at Al’s are pretty flexible. Saving the people of Auckland from starvation one day at a time, Al’s Deli is the kind of superhero we like!
If pizza is more your thing—well, if pizza a metre long is more your thing—look no further than Toto’s Pizza. Here, you’ll say goodbye to boring toppings because Toto’s toppings will kick your classic ham and pineapple to the curb. With the likes of prawns, basil, pesto, zucchini, cream mozzarella and parmesan gracing one pizza, you’ll feel like an Italian queen in no time. Best part is, Toto’s deliver these bad boys straight to your door. Could this get any better?! We’ll take one of everything! Oh and maybe a tiramisu too!
Not only are Scarecrow known for their luscious blooms and flowers, they also have a cafe where you can grab a tasty bite to eat while surrounded by some of Auckland’s prettiest petals. If you can’t quite muster up the energy to travel to Scarecrow headquarters, why not let them deliver to you? With four different artisan food packs on offer, we can’t go past the ‘Scarecrow Savoury Breakfast’ basket. Complete with fresh bagels, free range eggs, smoked salmon, cream cheese and seasonal greens, your morning just got a whole lot better.
If you’re craving the cakes and pining for the pastries, Vaniye have got your back. Delivering tarts and cakes, show-stopping desserts, perfect macarons, petit fours and a range of croissants and savoury lunch items, we want it all; now. Perfect for parties, special occasions or just when you want to indulge on some expertly, baked goods. Bon Appetite!
