Last month we went to Auckland for a night (husband to work, me to hang out with my cousin). As usual I did a whole heap of Facebook stalking and advice seeking about where to eat long before we left Hamilton. 

And that's how I found my way to Mondays. Based in New North Road, down a steep driveway, you'll find this amazing cafe serving whole foods, that are both delicious and food allergy friendly.

The whole kitchen is gluten-free, there's no processed food and no refined sugar. You'd think it would be all dust on a log type food, but actually no, it was delicious!

Here's what I had:


That's home-made gluten-free bread, it's crunchy, nibbly and nutty tasting; poached eggs, avocado with some kind of sprinkled yum, and leafy greens. So freakin' tasty. On the side you can see lotus chips. Now those were an unexpected treat ... I'm not sure where you buy lotus root from but if you can get it near you, slice it up and fry it because #yum.

Great service, great food and a lovely spot to hang out in the sun. Go check them out!
