Breakfast near Best Western Presidents Hotel

Can someone recommend an inexpensive place for breakfast near the Best Western on Victoria St in the CBD.

Also would love any suggestion for a place that has great flat white. I have only had it in an Kiwi owned cafe here in LA and love it. So I'm really looking forward to trying it inAuckland which I'm sure will be delicious.

There are some really good eateries around the Victoria Street, Elliot Street, Wellesley Street area.

Elliot stables (just along Elliot Street from your hotel) is a really nice little section of eateries in an historic building, with a couple of good breakfast cafes - every cafe in the whole of NZ serves flat whites so it would be very hard to suggest anywhere specific - just try a few !!

If you want a really big and inexpensive breakfast, then you could try 'Dennys' which is a sort of American style chain of breakfast diners, where you get big portions and good value............this is just round the corner from your hotel in Hobson St.

Oh I didn't realize Denny's opened up in Auckland.

Is there a place in Elliot Stable you can recommend? I would really love to try a traditional NZ breakfast (although I'm not sure what that consists of-lol).

Well, none of the places in Elliot Stables are really 'traditional NZ' - the French Creperie is great for breakfast though.....

We have lots of breakfasts based on good old bacon and/or eggs plus various cereal products.

If it was me, I'd walk straight down Victoria Street, across Queen Street, up one block and turn left into Lorne Street - there is a brilliant cafe there called Sheinkin, They'll sort you out with a flat white and a great brekkie in a very pleasant atmos (although perhaps not the cheapest place in town).

There are also two good places for coffee up the other end of Elliot Street from where you'll be (just past the Elliot Stables) and round the corner on Wellesley Street - one is called McGregor Brothers. The other is down towards Queen Street, called Brave or Bravo or something like that.

You don't say when you'll be in Auckland, but I believe the latest issue of Metro, which is a monthly magazine focussed on Auckland, lists the top 50 cafes in Auckland.

One place I really enjoyed on my last visit was a French cafe called L'Assiette, located in the Atrium building at Britomart which is not too far from Victoria Street. Best French Toast ever!
