When I ventured to East West Organics in New Lynn recently, I observed a nice looking cafe. It was closed, but I thought I’d go back because it looked very inviting – wooden tables, light and airy and the menu looked nice too with LOTS of gluten-free options.
I duly went back with my husband and the two youngest children for lunch. Until we ordered for the small fry, I hadn’t noticed that the menu was vegetarian! We managed to find some lovely food – here’s a sample of our brunches!
The building used to be part of a timber yard, and it has been beautifully converted. There were a large number of tables outside, which was lovely in the heat of the day. Do take a sunhat and sunscreen though. The food was great, although the small boys would have liked it a little faster. We finished up with cheesecake, rhubarb crumble and a brownie and it was all very delicious.
Do stop in if you’re want to eat good quality vegetarian or gluten-free food, or just wanting to try something a little different. It was a little pricier than a lot of the local cafes, but was very high quality food, so we were happy to pay it for an every now and again treat.
