Which cafes make the best coffee in your suburb?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours, we all know Kiwis love coffee but a survey has found that Auckland coffee drinkers are more likely to buy their coffee than Kiwis from the regions. A third of Aucklanders buy at least half of their weekly coffees and most preferred a flat white. How often do you buy coffee out? What do you usually order? And which local cafes do you think make the best coffee? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Countdown Online Shopping

Kim Neighbourly Lead from Mount Roskill

Have you done your grocery shopping online and had it delivered?
Well, for a long time I said I would never do this. I at the time, considered it lazy of myself Lol.
However, changes in circumstances have left me exploring my options. I've now had my shopping delivered quite a few times, and I can not stress enough how great it is. It may not be for everyone, I appreciate that.
I love that I can get up at my usual early rising time (before light), make a cuppa, and sit and do my shopping from the comfort of my seat in my pj's.
The feeling of having done it and knowing it will be delivered soon, without stepping foot in the store, is great.
Stress free. Safe. Never had an order go wrong. Packed and stored correctly and safely.
I wish I had been doing it way before now.
I just wanted to give this a shout out and recommend you have a go and see if it's for you.
I'm converted. From never will I, to, I love it and don't want to do it another way.
If I get a taxi to and from my home to shop, it would be $20ish return, then the waiting for the taxi, the queues and for those anxiety sufferers, the busyness of the store. For $15 someone actually takes my list and trolley and does it for me, then someone else will deliver it and all I have to do is put it all away. Oh the bother Lol.
It's 7am and the shopping is done, before the store is open!
Fabulous! Don't be frightened of the process or cost like I was. It's worth it!

Auckland Transport Fare Increases

Howard from Mount Albert

I see that AT are up to their usual tricks - telling us that fares are 'changing' in early February, when they know full well that what we are looking at are fare 'increases' for some 95%, possibly more, of full fare paying Aucklanders. So why not 'man up' and advertise the fare activity as fare 'increases' ? Because they are one of the 'slipperiest' organisations doing the rounds. Just saying.

How did the $1.2m supercar race leave Auckland?

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, The V8 supercars race costs Auckland ratepayers $1.2m and is the city's most-publicly-sponsored major event. So how did it suddenly end up shifting from its Pukekohe home to Waikato's Hampton Downs? Read the story below:
