The old Ponsonby fire station is home to Mary’s, a neighbourhood café serving up a sizeable and scrumptious menu for breakfast, brunch and dinner. The high ceilings, stained glass windows and exposed bricks add a lovely look and feel to the place, perfect for early breakfasts, leisurely lunches and coffee dates. Favourites on the menu include vegan sticky black rice, tuna nicoise and the halloumi and tofu toasted sandwich (with the avocado rose) you see all over Instagram. They also have delish baking made on site.
