“Quality and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Taken by family to their favourite vegetarian restaurant for a gorgeous lunch in lovely atmosphere. Vegetarians, coeliac and meat eaters very happy and full! Felt well looked after by staff who were very patient and helpful while we took a while to decide what we wanted - as there was such a great choice!

“The best vegetarian food in Auckland!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

The Blue Bird is my favourite cafe in Auckland. Hands down.
I live nearby and every Saturday I treat myself to a relaxing lunch there. Their "bowl" menus of vegetarian hot dishes served on rice or potatoes are all delicious. Their range of cakes and desserts (including lots of vegan options) are delicious. The coffee is perfect. The food is great and there is a wide range of options (veggie, vegan, and gluten free) available.
Beyond the food the atmosphere of the place is a delight - chillaxed music, friendly service, big comfy blue couches (where you will find me reading my book on any given Saturday), and pure filtered water that has been blessed with love and gratitude.
All this for a very affordable price tag.
Tell me what more you could want?
Tip 1: go up the stairs behind the counter because the upstairs dining is more relaxed
Tip 2: make sure you go on an empty stomache because you will want to order a lot and the portions are large
Enjoy!

“Healthy, wholesome food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2011

I Love this restaurant. I live about one hour away and everytime I visit Auckland city, I try my best to go to the Blue Bird. The food is delicious and healthy and vegetarian but my meat eater husband always enjoys the food as well. The staff are super friendly and you can tell the food is prepared with love. A highly recommended eatery.Not expensive
