Hillside Kitchen & Cellar have been creating a buzz with Thorndon locals ever since they opened. They pride themselves on doing things a little differently; you won’t find eggs benny on their breakfast menu. Instead you can enjoy an ever changing mouth-watering European inspired menu, from mushroom and parmesan brioche to gourmet English muffins and black pudding. For dinner it’s a three or four course menu, and it’s all from fresh seasonal local produce.

Without any conventional marketing, Hillside’s profile has been built by partnering with great local producers like Six Barrel Soda, Fig & Fog, Two Sisters wine, and Noble Estate Olive Oil. Loyal regulars, word-of-mouth, and consistent quality of food, coffee and service is proving Hillside Kitchen & Cellar to be a success.
