And luckily for you, I’ve rounded them all up in one place!

There’s something for everyone on this list, whether you’re in the mood for a rooftop brunch or a brunch with bottomless food.

Phone number: +64 9-365 2690

Price: $47.50 per person

Self-described as Auckland’s Original Bottomless Brunch, The Lula Inn is practically synonymous with bottomless brunch.

Brunch is Lula’s favourite meal of the day which is why they’re making it even better by throwing bottomless booze into the mix too.

Every Saturday and Sunday, you can enjoy bottomless brunch at Lula’s for $47.50 per person.

This price gets you one delicious brunch dish and two glorious hours of free-flowing Prosecco, mimosas and bloody Marys.

However, if you’re not drinking don’t worry because you can still enjoy their bottomless Paradise mocktail of pineapple, ginger and apple juice.

Their brunch menu is small and mighty.

Choose between Lula’s Benedict, Corn Hash, All Night Smoked Beans on Toast, and Brûlée Banana Bread.

If I was in the mood for something sweet, I know I’d go crazy for the brûlée banana bread.

I mean, how good does banana bread with bacon, whipped mascarpone and winter fruits sound?!

The smoked beans on toast with white beans, grains, leek and zesty lemon sounds unbelievable, too.

Basically, what I’m saying is that whatever you order, you’re in for an absolute treat at Lula’s!

Their bottomless brunch takes place between 10 am and 2 pm every Saturday, and 11 am and 2 pm every Sunday, with the last seating ending at 3:30 pm.

If you love Asian food, you’ll think their menu is one of the very best in Auckland, and I’d be inclined to agree!

Their menu features absolute beauties like bao buns, burgers, and more.

If you’re in the mood for a bao bun, you’ll love the Wu Fried Chicken bun with pineapple and coconut jam, pickled shallots, Sriracha mayo and coriander.

Or if it’s a burger you fancy, why not try out the falafel and firm tofu burger with red cabbage pickle, spring onion and shoestring fries?

Other menu highlights are the green papaya salad, five-spiced pork belly, and beef rendang.

As for the drinks, you’ll be washing all this delicious food down with bottomless mimosas, bloody dragon, and Aperol spritz.

However, if you’re not drinking don’t worry because you can enjoy their virgin sunrise cocktail instead.

Choose between one breakfast item, one larger plate, or two small plates.

If you fancy something breakfast-y, why not go for the paleo waffles with streaky bacon, banana, pineapple and maple syrup?

Or if you’re in the mood for more of a lunch dish, then why not try the lamb brioche burger with hummus, coleslaw, jalapeño, chipotle mayo, mint yoghurt,  and shoestring fries?

I think I’d order two small plates, and go for the five-spice pulled pork bao bun and the roasted veggie quesadilla.

Yum!

However, if you’re looking for a classier bottomless brunch in Auckland, then look no further than Eat Drink Laugh’s Luxe Lunch.

At $149 per person, it’s certainly on the pricier end of the spectrum but it’s well worth every penny!

Sit back, relax and enjoy free-flowing Veuve Clicquot, Peroni, red and white wine sangria, and mimosas.

Join them on their rooftop as they serve up two hours of free-flowing mimosas, bellinis and bloody Marys, accompanied by one brunch dish and some great tunes.

Their brunch menu features five wonderful mouth-watering dishes that I just can’t get enough of.

I think my favourite would have to be the Basalt corn fritters with garden salad, crispy bacon, sour cream and tomato relish.

The chorizo mish-mash with crushed potato, caramelised onion, spinach and poached eggs also sounds unbelievable, though.

Or if you fancy something sweet, you’ll love the chai-spiced French toast with grilled bobby banana and maple syrup.

Other menu highlights are the cajun chicken, the lamb salad, and the smoked salmon and potato hash.

Personally, I have my eyes on the Safran scramble.

How good does chorizo, capsicum, spinach, red onion and herbs, all scrambled with two eggs served with ciabatta sound?

Next, choose your main from the following options: chilli chicken, chilli potato, chicktik wrap, non-veg curry of the day, and veg curry of the day.

I can’t decide between the chilli potato or the chicktik wrap – they both sound too good!

For starters, everyone gets to enjoy corn chips with tomato salsa and guacamole, before moving on to your main. 

You can choose between two tacos, homestyle nachos, enchiladas, a burrito, an ensalada, and a quesadilla.
