Ask any Aucklander to point you in the direction of the hippest place to be seen and you’ll inevitably get a different answer each time. However, one place that does tend to crop up is Dizengoff – a Ponsonby Road favourite that, despite many comings and goings on the hospitality strip, has proved a bit of a mainstay.

Caffeine and Ponsonby Road go hand in hand and the fact that Dizengoff makes a decent cup of coffee probably has much to do with its success. Truth be told, Dizengoff doesn’t do too much out of the ordinary. Its interior is slick and stylish – mostly white, offset by a stripped back wooden floor and some good art on the walls, brunch is the focus (after all, Ponsonby Road is a brunchers’ destination) and the offerings largely centre on eggs. So how then does Dizengoff attract such a following when it sounds little different to the next café down the road? The real difference lies in the fact that at Dizengoff they do the basics well. It’s a quality place with quality offerings and an excellent service experience. And it seems that no matter how many new places might come and go quality is what will always stand the test of time.
