Karangahape Rd, or K Road as all Aucklanders call it, is probably the most famous, sometimes infamous, street in Auckland. Very akin to Oxford St in Sydney, K Road is where many people go for a big night out being the home of many nightclubs and bars.
By day however K Road offers great shopping in any of the many boutiques, and great food in one of the off beat cafe’s that line the street.
A favorite spot for me is Apero Food & Wine. Owned and run by an Australian, who has called Auckland home for many years, Apero offers tappas style share plates and a great selection of wine.
Another favorite, and for many Aucklanders since 1924, is St Kevins Arcade. This small arcade, that provides a thoroughfare from Karangahape Rd through to Myers Park, is filled with boutique shops and cafes. Besties cafe is a personal favorite of mine that is a great spot for breakfast, seating is in the arcade amongst palms and hanging pot plants.
K Road really does have it all!!
