MT EDEN

It might be named after a grand, dormant volcano, but there’s nothing sleepy about this suburb and its bustling village vibe, that has a distinct inner-city feel. Mt Eden’s sought-after charms lie with its school zone appeal and leafy hill-side streets.

Hidden gems from our agents

We just love Wild Wheat Café on Mt Eden Road, you must try the lemon meringue pie or the largest profiteroles we’ve ever seen! Watch out for the cream explosion!

What I enjoy about Mt Eden is the ‘village vibe’. The people are friendly and there is a real community feel.

With an ever-changing range of antique, vintage, and retro treasures, Antique Alley on Mt Eden’s Dominion Road is well worth a visit.

While Mt Eden Village is special, it’s Maungawhau (the mountain of the Whau tree) that firmly holds a special place within our hearts. Take a trip to the top and prepare to be amazed at the spectacular panorama of Auckland!
