Monica's Eatery

Top choice modern nz in New Plymouth

Beside the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery and Len Lye Centre, this all-day diner is homey despite its contemporary interior. Perhaps it's seeing handmade pappardelle lowered into bowls through the open kitchen, or the upbeat soundtrack that swings between Bill Withers and the Supremes. It's quite possibly the staff, who advise holding onto warm house focaccia for 'sauce mopping'. Whatever it is, we feel at home here.
