Pink Cafe

This is definitely only for the 'pink' girlies (4yrs upwards is best!) amongst us! Take them for an afternoon or morning tea treat - but be warned there's loads of china around! There's yummy pink iced lemon cakes served with fluffys. Oh and ribbons and accessories that you'll find hard to resist.

Restaurant & Bar Iguacu

Restaurant & Bar Iguacu

Parnell's iconic Restaurant and Bar. Pronounced Ig-wa-soo and named after the famous Iguacu falls on the Argentina/Brazil border, we have been providing a popular meeting place to Auckland diners for many years.

Archies Pizzeria

Just behind Broadway close to the cinemas and Olympic pools. Not so much a coffee place but for an early supper with the kids after a movie this is great. Archies is warm and friendly and kids are made to feel most welcome here. Their large pizza oven bakes delicious thin and crispy pizzas of all varieties (simple Ham, Cheese and Tomato if that's how they like them) They have two highchairs and a small toybox with colouring pencils and colouring books. (although on our last visit the pencils and pens had dwindled somewhat!) Lovely varied menu for adults too.
