Iki is a cool, spacious cafe with a distinctive New Zealand flavor. Owners Kim and Teru Harase lived in Auckland for 20 years and now commute back and forth between Tokyo and their base in Queenstown.

The food is brunchy, café style fare, with some adaptions for Japanese taste – the french toast is spongy rather than crunchy. The eggs benedict is very good though with a slice of crunchier bread.

Plates from around 1,200yen.

For more of that New Zealand feel, there’s even a magazine rack with a few NZ Rugby magazines and a few issues of Auckland lifestyle magazine Metro.
