The Garden Shed @ Auckland


On an idyllic afternoon, The Garden Shed is all that its name suggests & more: Kick back in this gorgeously decorated restaurant lined with potted plants, rakes & hoes, & order the grilled halloumi salad with assorted greens & the goat's cheese pate with plum jelly, along with hot mulled wine & a cool cocktail constructed with fig-infused whiskey.

The Garden Shed, Mt Eden, Auckland, New Zealand.

  2. Such a lovely place. I think I did drop by Mt Eden, didn't see this one. Sure would want to check it out if I had spotted it.

  5. Seems there's quite a few features done in Auckland. May I suggest RAD, up the road from this cafe. I lived in this suburb for a good 7 years when I was studying there. A lot has changed since I left in 2009 but these new cafes are making me want to return again for another visit since my last trip in 2015.

    Oh and if you're still there, check out Goodness Gracious Cafe (cnr of Symonds and Mt Eden Road).
