Located on the ground floor of a corporate building on busy Hurstmere Rd, Jam is a lovely, sweet retreat. You'll find a wide array of quality organic fare here, from the menu choices to the well-stocked food cabinet, with breezy service. The coffee is Velvet, a fair-trade organic brand roasted on the North Shore.

Housed in the former Grey Lynn Post Office, Kokako is a largely sustainable and certified organic cafe. The menu is strictly vegetarian but the dishes pack a flavour punch and are more interesting than your standard brunch dishes. Don't miss the coffee, which is so good it's supplied to a range of other cafes across Auckland.
