L'Oeuf brunch restaurant Mt Albert


ALEX – What better activity on a rainy Easter Sunday than explore a newish cafe in an area that you don’t normally frequent? This morning Mino and I checked out L’Oeuf cafe in Mt Albert and it was definitely something a little different (in a good way!). With names like “The Architect”, “The Queen”, “The Cambodian”and “The Peasant”, the menu was a really interesting read and it made it almost impossible to choose what to have. We opted for “The Nest” (pictured below), sunflower seed crumbed soft-boiled eggs in a pastry nest with beetroot ketchup and rocket salad, “The Geisha”, a soba noodle dish with sesame dressing which was so good, a couple of coffees and an orange and mango lassi. Everything was so tasty that we got greedy and ordered a Banh Mi, a chicken filled roll which was equally as good! Switch up your usual eggs benedict and try something new at L’oeuf – 4a Owairaka Ave, Mt Albert. 

CHIN – I’ve owned a bathtub for over 4 years now and have only ever used it once. This evening I felt compelled to use it a second time. A pretty neat way to deal with the cold and wet weather that’s happening in Auckland. It was nice and it looked like this.

DANNY – It’s a long weekend. A really long, long weekend. We’ve been away so much in the last couple of weeks, it’s been great to spend it in Auckland, catching up with visiting friends and getting domestic at home. My whole house has been tidied. And I baked bread. Actual bread, not in a breadmaker. Ciabatta. OK, so it’s a disfigured unique shape and heading towards the burnt side of well done, but it tastes pretty good and has holes and everything.

MINO – I always make a point to also check out the “girls section” of the stores I go into as you never know what you are going to find – I saw this coat on our recent trip to Sydney in the Acne store and fell in love with it. It’s easy, it has awesome volume and layering potential and I can’t wait for the weather to get a tiny bit cooler so I can actually start wearing it.
