Aucklanders take their eating seriously and, as befits a city of this size, there’s a huge range of places – and standards are generally very high. Daytime cafés often morph into full-blown restaurants, with alcohol consumption becoming an increasingly significant activity as the night wears on. A couple of culinary highlights reside in the shopping district of Newmarket, nearby suburban Mount Eden and up-and-coming Kingsland. If you find yourself peckish while visiting Kelly Tarlton’s or swimming at Mission Bay, try one of the selection of places along Tamaki Drive. Sadly, Devonport doesn’t have the culinary heft you’d expect of a wealthy suburb with several pricey B&Bs.
