For lunch yesterday, I tried a new place that Kat recommended: 7 in Grey Lynn. The coffee is good, she said, and there is a vegan burger.
Indeed, the coffee was good. Grey Lynn strong, good balance of soy milk & coffee, adequately hot. Would drink again.
The burger was a huge stack of stuff on a sesame seed bagel: tempeh, pineapple, tomatoes, zucchini, lettuce & red onion. It was hungry-sized, tasty & simple without being junky.
The only drawback was the B food hygiene rating – enough to prevent me from taking certain friends, but not enough to stop me from having their coffee again.
7 is at 576 Great North Road, Grey Lynn (near the intersection with Williamson Ave).
