High Street just became a little bit cooler with the opening of The Little High Eatery; a collection of eateries housed in an open space building in the 181 High Street Development. A similar concept to Ponsonby Central in Auckland, the space is designed to offer plenty of dining options in a more sophisticated manner than your typical food court.

With an assortment of tasty cuisines, new businesses and much loved favourites, there’s something for all tastes here. The name is slightly deceptive; ‘Little High’ (as it is more commonly known), is anything but little when it comes to choice ... Patrons can choose from eight different eateries; Bacon Brothers, A Mouse Called Bean, Eight Grains, Noodle Monk, Base Pizza, El Fogon, Caribe Latin Kitchen and Sushi Soldier, with options like a mixed Argentinian grill, Taiwanese braised pork rice bowl, and churros to satisfy your sweet tooth. And when it comes to drinks? There’s no shortage of options there either. The entire eatery has 40 different craft beers on offer, as well as wines, coffee from A Mouse Called Bean, and authentic margaritas and mojitos from Caribe Latin Kitchen. But don’t restrict Little High to just an after work drinks spot. With extensive hours, open from 7am everyday until 10pm Sunday - Wednesday, and until midnight Thursday - Saturday, it’s ideal for breakfast, brunch, quick catch ups, meetings, drinks and dessert.

With outdoor seating, perfect for warm weather and a plan to host regular live music, not to mention convenient parking, and a short commute from many central city offices, The Little High Eatery is sure to become your new favourite spot in the city.
