Ponsonby International Food Court (upstairs, 106 Ponsonby Road) is a fav place for locals to have a cheap and tasty eat out. I lived in Auckland for 15 years and locals debate their favourite stall/s and dishes all the time. I really like the Cari Bo (I have probably spelt that wrong) from the Vietnamese place, and my partner loves... More

Places to eat and shop all along the street. Most have a hipster/ vintage/ quirky feel that gives this area a lively character.

Home to some of the most wonderful cafes and fashion boutiques in Auckland. Beautiful during the day or at night, and is close to Auckland CBD as you can catch an inner link bus from the city to Ponsonby. Quite posh and expensive, but well worth visiting regardless.

Ponsonby is a little too posh for my liking but a nice neighbourhood for an afternoon stroll... Lots of people watching.

It is worth grabbing a cab or making the walk to Ponsonby for brunch and shopping. Here is the home of the leisure class, self-employed and/or work-from-home'ers. Any cafe will do - they're all exceptional. Head away from the Label chain stores, instead head towards Ponsonby Road and you have a plethora or high-end amazing second hand clothing shops. Not...

Ponsonby is full of interesting architecture, ethnic shops and cafes. You do not need to stroll far for a coffee & snack in Ponsonby, just depends how much you want to spend. There are also 3 or 4 reserves and parks, in which to rest or have a picnic. Parking is always a problem, you may have to park away... More
