Best of the burbs; where to eat in Remuera
The best restaurants, bars, and cafes in Remuera.
Although there is a common misconception that you have to be a business lawyer who enjoys golf to live in Remuera, that is wildly incorrect. You have to be a lawyer who enjoys golf and owns a schnauzer to live there, but that doesn’t mean you can’t visit.
In fact, today Remuera has a rich and diverse range of culinary offerings within Auckland restaurants. So, here is a list of reasons to visit Remuera that don’t involve golf, schnauzers, or tweed vests:
It pains me to share this secret with you all because I am as territorial of Table Talk as a schnauzer is of its home. I recently lived in Remuera for 18 months, 17 of which I spent drinking coffee and admiring the cabinet food in Table Talk. This place is just exactly what you need in a suburb; friendly staff, homecooked cabinet food that doesn’t look like its been there since Democrats were in the White House, and Flight Coffee. It doesn’t overcomplicate things, the decor is clean and simple, and it instead focuses on delivering really high-quality service, and it pays off. Any given morning of the week locals can be found queuing for coffees and cinnamon brioches. And any given morning I will be one of them.

Flour Mill Cafe
This is more Epsom, by which I mean its postcode is literally 1023 not 1050, but it’s a skip, hop and a skinny cap away from Remaz hard. It’s also super cute. Signature pink adorns are carried throughout, on the coffee cups, on the walls, on the La Marzocca, everywhere. It’s all very pretty, and the food is no exception. ‘Gypsy Toast’ is an intriguing feature and is comprised of brioche soaked in orange and topped with pistachios, pink grapefruit curd and vanilla mascarpone.

Browns Eatery and Story
If Brown’s was a person, it would be the personification of Remuera, but in the best way possible. You will be hard pressed to visit Brown’s without seeing at least three people wearing horizontal blue and white striped clothing and another five in active wear. I genuinely googled Brown’s Remuera and the photo above was the first to show up after I had already written this. Schnauzer's galore, fluffy egg sandwiches, and Allpress Coffee being poured left right and centre. It’s spacious and inviting, located directly on the main strip of Remuera Village, and it’s a pretty unbeatable place for a coffee catch up with your gran.
