Always come back to this little hub of European style and character in Auckland with some of the best cafes in New Zealand, inspiring design shops and so many international varieties of food to choose from. It has a very unique atmosphere which I always return to year after year - a great place for tourists to enjoy too

Ponsonby is the Balancing pole other side of town version of Parnell. Ponsonby has some amazing Restaurants Pubs cafes and knick knack shopping. It is also the home of The Three Lamps Hotel formerly known affectionately as the "Gluepot". The Hotel was and is Famous for being one of the core Pub's that hosted NZ's explosion of bands through the 70's and on into the now. Great memorabilia.

We stopped in Ponsonby for a streetside lunch - all very nice but nothing to rave over. There's a steady stream of traffic going by and it's an easy find if you're on public transport, but as far as the shops and cafes, we found better elsewhere.

Lots of good bars and restaurants in an area full of character and old buildings. Quite laid-back and interesting shops around too.

Ponsonby is a germ, nice cafes and restaurants mixed with brick a brick shops and high end cloth shops. A must for any visitor to Auckland.
