Coffee Ride Dizengoff
Date: 13 Apr, 2008

Lycra and coffee are a frequent occurrence around Auckland. One without the other isnt a ride anymore, especially with the vast selection of dwellings to choose from. Dizengoff caf on Ponsonby road is one of the busiest cafs on the strip. Open 6.30am to 5pm weekdays, and 7am till 5pm weekends, the small caf is jam packed fill of tables, and recently opened upstairs for more seating no doubt giving their staff leg training like our daily rides.

Dizengoff sports a selection of cabinet food (minus the cabinet), and a wide range on the menu from as simple as cheese on toast (the melt) to by far my favourite; mushrooms on toast with sausages. Their cinnamon brioches (slightly heated) are a must with an early morning coffee made from Allpress beans. Whats the more satisfying about their coffee is that it is consistently hot, strong, and damn satisfying.

Since my move to Ponsonby Ive been there several times in lycra, and most recently with a whole bunch of us. No matter what Im wearing, weather its my wayfarers & jeans or bibshorts they are consistent in their exceptional service by being quick, polite, and barely noticeable clearing tables. Id highly recommend paying Dizengoff a visit. You wont be disappointed. 256 Ponsonby Rd, Auckland (sandwiched between GPK and Nosh)
