Verona is a Karangahape Road institution. It recently celebrated its 22nd year in business. A warm cosy environment with booth seating. This place is a hangout for local hipsters and creative types. Makes for a great people watching spot. The food is fabulous fresh wholesome fare with everything made on the premises. A cafe during the day which becomes a bar eatery in the evening. Djs and live entertainment going till late in the night.
