Auckland: Winona Forever

A busy new cafe popping up on the street of Parnell, where it seems to be the trend of new openings, bringing back a reason to come to Parnell and not to just stuff our face with chocolate at The Chocolate Boutique.

If you have been to Hello Friends and Allies, you will be happy to know the now previous owners have opened Winona Forever which you will see similar trends with their display food setup. Who can’t agree that brunch is the best meal of the day and if you want to walk away feeling stuffed and satisfied, this eatery will be next on your list.

There really isn’t an item on the menu that doesn’t sound appealing. Going for the lighter option besides my 3 fatty dining partners, the Beet Street was beautifully presented but delicately light and fresh to eat. Though as much to say I wasn’t much better by ordering the Peanut butter and Jelly Smoothie which I actually couldn’t finish but wished I was fat enough to.

I was tossing up on ordering the Beans is Beans which my mate ate being slightly jealous of her dish when placed on the table, but I am a sucker for a go to avocado dish and I was really wanting to try something different. She couldn’t say a bad thing and the portion size was well worth the money!

If you are typical eggs bene eater, the Bacon Benedict is for you.  the only negative from the dish, was the bread tasted nice but was very heavy and dense, which can be quite overwhelming with a thick hollandaise sauce.

Would I return? Hell yes! They are still trying to find their feet, as service was pretty slow but I dont have a doubt they will be running smoother in the near future.
