One of the most famous cafés in Mt Eden, Auckland - Circus Circus is a popular hangout that can be found bursting with customers during different hours of the day. Whether it's breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or dessert - Cirus Circus is a go-to eatery that won't disappoint.
Open daily from dawn til dusk, this café has been in the Mt Eden district since 1995. The red and gold color circus theme, eclectic decor and the feisty tiger guarding outside, this place is popular with the young and the older alike.
The café serves meals from the kitchen – breakfast till 11:30AM, brunch/lunch till 4:30PM, and dinner till late – as well as pastries, sandwiches, cakes and salad from their glass cabinet by the counter.
I have to admit, I’m not a big fan of the food they served during the dinner session (I’ve eaten dinner there a few times) but their breakfast/brunch is one of the best in the area. Did I mention that their baristas make a great cup of joe?
So next time you’re in the area and looking for a place to have brunch, why not pop by Circus Circus. You won’t be disappointed.
