Lulu's - fabulous breakfast & lunch!

Every trip to Auckland includes a trip to Lulu's on Ponsonby Rd. Delicious pasta and my favourite the eggs benny with salmon/lulu's bb stack!! Owners are always friendly and welcoming. Visit Lulu's when you are next in Auckland, you won't be disappointed.

Dropped in past for a quick breakfast on the way to a meeting on sharp windy Auckland morning. Warm friendly atmosphere, thick generous slices of toast, lashings of jam - yum.

At first glance - it's not pretty.... Excellent food. Eclectic cafe but very relaxed and great coffee. Good service and we will be back

Great breakfasts, really good coffee and lovely service. I had the eggs Benedict, which was delicious. Saw other peoples breakfasts arriving and Lulus doesn't stint on the size of servings. If you're hungry, this is the place to go. Small but perfect, with lots of character.

Awful service, awful food, don't value customers, no cards, and no character. There are so many amazing venues on Ponsonby Road we wish we never gave this place a go. Extremely rude staff.

We were staying at the Ponsonby Backpackers and decided to treat ourselves to breakfast and this is where we ended up! Great hostess and fab food. I had the oatmeal with banana, strawberries and maple syrup. This could keep you going all day! My traveling companion just had toast and jam - but that was pretty good too.

Have enjoyed Lulu's on Ponsonby Road many times, eat breakfast there regularly, super pancakes, love the eggs Benedict with salmon. Have enjoyed lunch too, fab pasta dishes. Great service, very good coffee, Trevor friendly and accommodating, nothing too much trouble, definitely recommend.

When we arrived in Auckland after a long and exhausting flight from Europe we were glad to find "Lulu's" little cafe and restaurant on Ponsonby Road. In our 10 days we spent in New Zealand we went there three times, so this speaks for itself! The owner (at least we think so...) who served us is a very lovely woman... More

Unpretentious, friendly, relaxed and almost cozy. They serve the kind of breakfasts you crave when you have a hangover... Good menu selection.
