Roost is set to feed our habit for great coffee & bagels.

Set to be a hip new Ponsonby precinct, the upcoming Vinegar Lane is now home to Roost — a convenient daytime pit stop that is set to feed our habit for great coffee and bagels.

Spear-heading the operation are Wayne Schuler, Shaun Marlo and Ruben Maurice, the latter of whom you will likely know from the popular hole-in-the-wall purveyor of the East Coast delicacy, Vulcan Lane Bagels. On the outside, Roost is slick, minimalist and industrial and that from within serves deliciously brewed Atomic Coffee as well as a concise selection of bagels to fuel you on the go.

Opt for a classic spread such as Marmite, Nutella, or Vegemite, or, we recommend sampling a “schmear” — either the smashed avocado or the smoked salmon. Moreover, if you’ve got no time to waste, grab a bite from their cabinet which is brimming with delights sourced from none other than Scratch Bakers including their sweet and savoury brioches and muffins, to creme brûlée tarts. There’s sure to be something that will satisfy daytime cravings.

Open from 7-2pm Monday – Friday.
