Totally Awesome

I love the food in this place, it is a consistently high standard with a wide variety of main dishes available, as well as drinks and sweets (sugarless of course). The only problem is it's only open for breakfast, lunch and afternoons, not for evening meals….

Pros: Absolutely top food, beautiful decor, Well situated in central Ponsonby
Cons: sooo crowded, often queues, staff sometimes a bit stressed, a bit of subtle pressure to finish up

Popular Vegan Lunch Time Restaurant

Hiding away in a little side street in Ponsonby has not stopped this restaurant from being very popular. May be queues at lunch time. Vegan and mostly raw lunches in Western style. Moderately priced for near city. Caters to eating in or take away. Pleasant decor.

Pros: vegan, raw, pleasant

A beautiful little place that gets super busy! Make sure you are there earlier than you want to eat as you often need to wait for a table. The food is amazing. There is a menu that stays the same, however, they often have new items available. The best part about Little Bird is the cabinet! Vegan and raw cheesecakes, slices, cake pops and more! The hardest decision is choosing what you will eat from the cabinet - you won't be disappointed with what you choose. Great service from a happy team!

Pros: Amazing Food, Service
Cons: So busy (because it's so good!)

Simply Fabulous!

Raw food (bar a few exceptions) that not only tastes amazing but looks absolutely beautiful. The place is always packed so sometimes you have to wait a while for a seat, and may have to share a table with others, but its worth the wait. They have a 'pecking order' for seats so you don't get queue-jumped, and they have takeaway options. The menu items are delicious, and the cabinet food is very enticing. They cover breakfast, brunch and lunch, with the kitchen closing at 3pm and the smoothie station closing at 3.30pm. They change up the cabinet food options continuously so it's worth popping in if you're passing by. They have other items for sale also, such as their 'grawnola', raw crackers, macaroons etc, as well as raw chocolate, teas, agave syrup, Vitamix mixers (on my wish list!) and other assorted items. The staff are friendly and cope with the rush well most of the time. I wouldn't recommend going there if you're in a hurry because the food can take a while to come out of the kitchen, but again, it's worth the wait - filling, delicious, and healthy.

Just be aware, if you are strictly vegan, that some of their menu items have bee pollen or honey in them. If you're unsure or it's not listed on the menu (they usually list ingredients) just ask and I'm sure they'll be happy to help.

Pros: Excellent food, Great, friendly service, Regularly updating cabinet foods
Cons: Sometimes very busy, Potentially long wait times

Lots of Food to Choose From

All the cabinet food is gluten free and most of it is vegan, but you do need to ask, because honey is used as a sweetener.
The food is rather pricey ($9 for a small slice of cheesecake, $15 for a takeaway salad) but the food is fresh and healthy.
Its in my neighbourhood, and is always busy and popular.
its not well signed - look for the little bird house on the side of the wall in Summer Street.

Pros: Good choice for treats, Healthy, Mostly vegan and gluten free
Cons: rather pricey, busy - queues out the door
