Food Truck Garage reviewed by Jen M.
As seen on TV! I had the papple dog which is pork sausage with apple slaw. This is really fresh fast food and under $10! A healthy alternative to other fast food options - and a great lunch time option. Do go early if you want dinner there as this place fills out fast!
Bird On A Wire - Ponsonby reviewed by Ricci M.
Yesterday I wanted takeaways but I wanted something healthy, which is often hard to come by when it's a takeaway. Bird on A Wire offer lots of salad choices with roasted free range, halal chicken on top so it's ethical and healthy! Yum.
Ripe Delicatessen reviewed by Charlotte R.
Just walking into Ripe gets the tastebuds primed for the delicious items that await in the counters. First up are the healthy and compact wraps residing below in the second cabinet - a quick bite on the run. The ultimate in takeaway lunches are in the two longer fridges with delectable, melt-in-your mouth salmon, pulled pork burritos, a plethora of satisfying salads, Ripe beef lasagne, potato cakes, hot pasta dishes and so much more that you can pull together to make the perfect meal. The freezer has soups such as cauliflower and parmesan, white bean, kale and fennel and homemade chicken soup as well as more substantial frozen casseroles. The coffee is a malty and flavorsome Altezano brew and so welcoming on a brisk day.

Little Bird is my favourite cafe in Auckland! I love the way you can eat a delicious treat here without feeling sick afterwards! The only problem is that they aren't on the North Shore!!
Revive Lorne Street reviewed by Kylie B.
If you live or work in Auckland’s inner-city CBD then Revive is the place to go to do just that - get revived and rejuvenated by eating some of the tastiest and best-texture salads in all of New Zealand. Created with health and wellness as top of mind, Revive does an outstanding array of flavours and so no matter how pesky your palette, there will be a salad option that suits you. Guaranteed! Plus, I love the fact that their menu changes daily so you can go for lunch regularly and never get bored.
Wise Cicada reviewed by Erica N.
In all honesty, I can not shut my trap about this place. It is absolutely incredible! For all the health-conscious: This is your one stop shop. Everything from the salad bar, to the slices, to the superfood smoothies and juices, to the bircher muesli, to the coffees in the deli are deli-ghtful! Not to mention their grocery store makes for the perfect excuse to pop by. Love their work.
