Auckland: The Block Cafe

The Block is a great eatery in Blockhouse Bay – hence the name, bringing a casual atmosphere for that laid back meal. For this occasion we chose to come for brunch however I will be returning for lunch or dinner after seeing what other diners around us had ordered. 

TBH what we ate would be a really good hangover meal. The Block serves as a real man’s meal giving you everything you want for breakfast. The bf said the baked beans were great as they had a more barbecued flavour and thought the stuffed mushroom was something different! I couldn’t ask for more. Everything on the sunrise sandwich was cooked perfectly and satisfied exactly what I was craving. The only issue I have is the name of the meal haha – sunrise sandwich is just odd. The meals are served hot, and quickly and although they aren’t amazing they are a great size and great value for money. You get what you expect whilst tasting goood. The Block isn’t trying too hard to be anything its not. Also I give them a plus for table service.
