The Block Cafe
Before you ask, yes—this is the Blockhouse Bay café responsible for that fried chicken eggs benedict you’ve been dreaming about. Sitting along Blockhouse Bay Road, The Block Café has made a name for itself dishing out an array of delicious breakfast and lunch (and dinner from Wednesday to Sunday) food and a great selection of drinks—coffee, cocktails, wine, beer—take your pick. Their evening menu features the likes of kingfish ceviche, crispy prawn tacos, pizza of the week and an epic Tomahawk pork chop. There’s an expansive deck if you’d like to take in the fresh air or cosy up inside and enjoy one of the best meals you’ll have in that area of Auckland.
