After a successful Pink Ribbon Brunch last month (more details here), we are back doing our usual brunch clubs!

Auckland’s June #BRUNCHCLUB was held at Meadow in Meadowbank!

Meadow is a sophisticated and modern bistro and bar, taking local neighbourhood dining to the next level. Offering a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere, plus elegant interior and an expansive courtyard – perfect for al fresco dining!

Meadow put on a beautiful morning for us – we were seated outside in their courtyard under a private marquee (surrounded by plants and trees), and they decorated a long table with a navy blue theme in mind. They also added special touches, such as blue flowers and personalised name cards. We also loved the fact that we had our own hashtag
#MeadowXNZBloggers and custom made cookies by The Cookie Collective. They even provided us with navy blue blankets and heat lamps in case we got cold.

@meadow_restaurant put on an amazing show for the @nzbloggers Brunch Club yesterday! I’ve seen their marquee in action before for a baby shower, but it was great to see what the marquee looks like close up. The table inside can comfortably fit 15 people and can be styled a variety of ways – I loved what Meadow did for our #meadowxnzbloggers brunch✨ The Brunch Club is an awesome way to catch up with other like minded, blog related people… and who doesn’t like brunch, right!? It was lovely to see old and new faces and I look forward to next months event! Check out the other awesome peeps who came: @nzbloggers @lozalock @onceuponanegg @adiandbert @sapidscoop @_georgieats_ @bunnyeatsdesign @thefoodieinc @eatitauckland Featured food pics are; soy latte by the fire, ‘Mushrooms on grain toast’, a personalised @thecookiecollectivenz MEADOW X NZBLOGGERS cookie, ‘Meadow huevos sucios’, a berry superfood smoothie, ‘Chorizo croque madame’, ‘Crepes’ and the ‘Meadow huevos sucios’ again, and finally, the ‘Eggs Benedict’ with the English muffin swapped out for sourdough and a side of maple syrup. I got the ‘Meadow huevos sucios’ and it is definitely something I’d have again! It was a hot 🌶 dish, but you could easily take the chilli off and it would be mild 👌🏻 Thanks Meadow – I look forward to next time!🍴 . . . #NZBloggers #BrunchClubNZ #BrunchClub #Bloggers #MeetUp #Meadow #MeadowRestaurant #Meadowbank #Thankful #Twelvebelles #SelfCare #GlutenFree #Gf #GlutenFreeLife #Eggs #Brunch #Smoothie #Delish
