Bird does Breakfast

Introducing yet another chook centric pit stop that's offering a satisfying start to the day.

Extending their avian empire even further, chook specialists Bird on a Wire’s most recent venture has seen them assume a new residence on the sidewalk of Elliot Street in Auckland’s CBD. Joining what is fast becoming a destination for many a culinary delight thanks to the increasing number of food purveying containers, this cute, compact and sustainable outpost is proffering all the things we’ve come to expect from the chicken connoisseurs, and much more.

What’s rather ideal about this pedestrian centric food stop, is the breakfast offerings that are indulging our desires for a healthy start to the day whilst taking into consideration our largely time-poor tendencies. Utilising the line up of lettuces and herbs sprouting atop their distinctive black box – an effort by Box of Bird to become more self-subsistent – here at you’ll find several simple offerings that won’t overwhelm you with choice, yet are bound to hit the spot for a satisfying start to the day. The paleo-complimenting, chilli-dusted, free range boiled eggs, come with homemade hummus, a healthy handful of spinach and the added option of whole grain toast on the side. There’s also the toasted turkish bacon sandwich for those desiring a breakfast with a little more soul, alongside ready-made parfaits, wild wheat almond croissants and a cabinet brimming with tempting little goodies.

So combine all this with a Kokako organic coffee and a dose of the contagious energy from the team serving you behind the counter, and dare we say, you’ve got the makings for a very good start to your day. Never mind the fact that you’ll most likely be tempted to return for lunch and/or dinner given the array of gratifying and widely-vaunted salads, sandwiches and hot rotisserie chickens. With all this bird-inspired action on the go, there’s little doubt we’ll be coming back time and time again.
