A food store and wine lounge rolled into one, Dida’s on Jervois Road is an Auckland institution. Meaning ‘Grandfather’ in Croatian, Dida’s is a tribute to Jak Jakicevich, whose grandfather pioneered Glengarry Wines in 1940. Open for breakfast and lunch, you’ll find Spanish scrambled eggs, delicious salads and plenty of cabinet food to choose from. Later in the day, Dida’s Wine Lounge & Tapas Bar serves all sorts of nibbly bits (think cheese croquettes and venison meatballs) alongside an impressive list of wines.
