The usual places we would normally go was McDonald's, Subway or little cafes around were we lived.
Instead, we went into the city and walked down one of the many little streets browsing for a place that caught our eye.
One in particular was a Belgian / German Cafe called Occidental Bar which is located on Vulcan Lane off Queen Street in Auckland City.
Prior to coming here we have been to dinner at a very similar cafe called Blankenberge Belgian Beer Cafe, and every Tuesdays they have a special on $15 1/2 Kilo steaks and a side of fries .
We took an instant liking to the atmosphere, very casual, spacious and nice and quite where we could talk and have some good food.
Here is what we ordered for breakfast:
Me: Hot chocolate with a yummy German Biscuit on the side
Andrei: Frothy hot coffee with the same cookie (that cookie was damn good!)
Me: Fluffy pancake stack with maple syrup, cream, sliced bananas and mixed berries and a side of hash browns
Andrei: Occidental Big Breakfast (typical man choice haha) grilled bacon, tomato, Belgian sausage, creamy mushroom, hash browns, poached eggs and toasted grain bread.
