Parnell is a place where ‘amazing’ and ‘incredible’ live just around the corner from each other, and where timeless heritage rubs shoulders with the bright, modern lights of tomorrow.

It’s also where business meets up with pleasure for a perfectly served coffee or gastronomic adventure. From the many enchanting nooks and crannies to its broad open spaces filled with the scent of roses, Parnell is connected to history, connected to transport and connected by a vibrant population of Aucklanders who are passionate, artistic and eclectic explorers of both the old and new.

Parnell is the Space to Be.

Catching the attention of the media including Concrete Playground, The Urban List and Denizen is our brand new eatery called Winona Forever. In the words of Denizen – “Parnell, you ought to be excited: You’ve got a shiny new all-day eatery on your doorstep and it is set to churn out some seriously good eats.

In fact, when you walk into the newly redecorated space and up to the front cabinet to place your order, you may well find your jaw hitting the floor. While simultaneously prying your tongue from the new tiles, you’ll be confronted with the challenge of choosing from the outrageously good-looking line-up of baked goods (profiteroles laden with glossy string toffee, white chocolate truffles, dainty tea cakes, jam and mascarpone doughnuts, fresh salads, generous quiches and much more), never mind the enticing menu”.
