Breakfast Series: Orphans x Cazador, April 6

We’re excited to announce the first instalment of the Orphans Breakfast Series. This is a ticketed event, where we invite another restaurant or chef to collaborate on a 2-course breakfast at our place on Ponsonby Road. If you all enjoy the first one, we promise there will be many more to come.

First up are Dariush and Rebecca of Auckland restaurant Cazador, who are joining us on Thursday April 6. Courses will be accompanied with paired coffee and juice, and tickets cost $45pp. 10% of the proceeds will be donated to Women’s Refuge.

To book, please email Lou at eat.orphans@gmail.com. You can choose any time between 7.30am and 10.30am. If for whatever reason you need to be picky on time, please email us now to avoid missing out.

We think the start of a new day is a fine time to dine.
