Enjoyed finding this little gem that could have easily been missed. Options to eat and drink here are in restaurants or some benches to enjoy take away food. Worth wandering here to discover if in Auckland.

Great little lane in the centre of the city just off Queen Street. A great range of places to eat and drink and pass the time of day. Definitely a place to visit.

Very 'melbournesque' lane with good specislity shops varying from designer labels to Macpac. Also a variety of eateries of which I would personally recommend Cassette Nine and Vultures Lane (see separate reviews).
