Auckland: Freds

Fred’s is a wee cafe found on the corner of Ponsonby and Franklin roads. The menu isn’t extensive but offers mostly breakfast with a few lunch options thrown in there. 

We came early on a saturday morning and I recommend you do the same because as we left it was packed inside, and Fred’s isn’t the largest space. They also offer a small outside area with bohemian tables and blankets for the cold weather. Although when the sun is out, its a great area to just eat and relax.

I chose the breakfast bruschetta instead of the avocado on toast, as the avocado was combined with ricotta and finished with basil. Just a great breakfast twist, to your ordinary avo on toast. Again another menu item originally served with eggs, which I swapped out for tomatoes. We both agreed the portion size of both of our breakfasts were great value for money.

The banana smoothie gets a thumbs up and next time, maybe not so early in the morning Ill come back for a milkshake – which seam to be the popular choice at Fred’s. Lovely service and food is efficient.
