I usually visit Greytown a few times a year and as soon as I arrive, I’m filled with a sense of calm. An obligatory stop was made again at 2 short whites eatery and preservatory. It’s situated in a newly developed area at 76 Main Street Greytown. The location is dangerous though, as it’s near the most gorgeous boutique Deluxe, so then suddenly my lunch becomes costly.

I’d read and heard good reviews about Comes and Goes, so being competitive as I am,  I wanted to check it out pronto. After a tough Sunday hill walk we arrived bang-on noon.

We also had a great view of the busy, open kitchen. Continue reading

Set within a white Victorian villa, good ‘ole Boulcott Bistro is still alive and well and is one of Welly’s great dining institutions. The décor is stunning. We both have a soft spot for BSB as it’s always consistent with great food and service, and it’s a five star dining experience without the pricetag. As it’s on the outskirts of the CBD you tend to forget about it, however we visit at least annually and I’d love to visit more in future. Continue reading
