Wandering through the central streets of Auckland CBD in search for a good coffee place with a nice quiet relaxed atmosphere we found Imperial Lane which lies tucked away down along corridor/alleyway between lower Queens Street and Fort Lane.
Imperial Lane is an European inspired casual dining providing a selection of sweet and savoury items provided by Elske. A breakfast/lunch items and a separate evening menu.
The decor has an industrial feel to it which matches well with suits during the week day. One side houses the food counter/cashier.
While the other side houses the tables and chairs.
Flat White – Nice and strong. Served at the right temperature. One of the better places in Auckland serving coffee fit for a Wellingtonian
Hot X Bun – the hot cross bun was soft, delicious. full of fruit and spices. the staff at Imperial Lane was able to toast the hot x bun as requested.
Will definitely be back to try other patisserie items and coffee.
Location: 7 Fort Street or 44 Queen Street, Auckland CBD
