Hum

After driving past this huge dilapidated old house several times in the past few weeks, I was intrigued and had to stop in for a visit. Turns out it's a heritage site and the owners are renovating. At the moment they just serve coffee (Kokako) and slices, but they are planning exciting things for this place - apparently the kitchen will be open in about 6 months and it'll be a cafe, restaurant, bar & venue. What a massive (extra curricular?) project! In the meantime you can pick a couch on the veranda and chill out with a flat white. 
Hum, 123 Grafton Rd, Auckland.
