As the big brother to Little Bread and Butter Bakery in Ponsonby Central, Bread and Butter Cafe and Bakery in Grey Lynn gives off a homely and warm ambience in spite of its large open layout and high ceilings. There's plenty of natural light coming in through the large north facing windows which makes it a great spot to read a book with plenty of room for when friends turn up.

The teapots, biscuit tins and old milk bottles decorating the place serve to give it a rustic homey feel and will transform you on a comforting and nostalgic trip back to scones and cuppa teas at Gran's place. Bread and Butter bakes their goods fresh on site using sustainably farmed organic flour with no additives, plus the chicken and eggs all come from happy chickens! Gluten free bread and sweets are also available.

The French pastries are notably authentic and I'm sure their almond croissants wouldn't feel too out of place in a little Parisian pattiserie. With an extensive breakfast and lunch menu as well as more specialty breads than you can shake a baguette at, head down to this bakery if you're in the neighbourhood.
