Mozaik cafes excel We enjoy a high standard of coffee and cafes in Auckland. But lately the Mozaik licensed cafes have raised the standard even higher! Two years ago, partners Alex, Memet and Nigar realised a dream with the opening of Mozaik in Candida Office Park, Constellation Drive -- a spacious, stylish cafe open seven days from 7am, catering for everyone from families to workers, business functions to full wedding catering. Mozaik Constellation s weekend custom is legendary, serving 1000 people over Saturday and Sunday and featuring live music on Sundays from 12 noon. Next, Mozaik revolutionised cafe culture in trendy Parnell, with its restaurant standard food and table service at affordable prices. It attracts some famous faces -- Mozaik staff are always thrilled to see PM John Key and family, but guarantee that everyone receives the same welcome! Now Mozaik has radically changed shopping mall dining with a fully licensed cafe and all-day table service in Westfield Shore City, Takapuna. Shoppers, office workers and fam- ilies love Mozaik s arrival in the mall. The service is outstanding; so is the fresh cabinet food and the all- day breakfasts like Corn Eggs Ben- edict and home-made hashbrowns. The restaurant-style a la carte lunch menu is superb in quality and value -- try the new Chicken Melon Salad. Meanwhile, Mozaik New Lynn has been west Auckland s favourite cafe for more than six years, popular not only by day but as a function venue. The same outstanding menu and wine selection is available at all Mozaik cafes -- including great value own-label fine wines. Mozaik daily roasts its own coffee blend, and also makes its own Turkish coffee along with other Turkish delicacies. Oxfam Trailwalker sponsors: Mozaik is proud to sponsor the North Shore Police Team in the 2011 Oxfam Trailwalker 100km charity walk in Taupo this April. Mozaik Cafes are all family owned, not franchised, open seven days from 7am. Mozaik Constellation Drive is at 61 Constellation Drive Mairangi Bay, phone 476-3344. Mozaik Takapuna is in Westfield Shopping Centre, cnr Lake Rd and Como St, phone 488-2144. Find out more on www.mozaik.co.nz. Totara for fine dining Lamb rack: One of the reasons Totara keeps 'racking' up awards! Some years ago a book named In Search of Excellence rocketed to the top of business best- sellers. If they print a new edition, they should res- erve a chapter for Totara Restaurant in Albany, who this year received the NZ Beef and Lamb Excellence Award for a 13th consecutive year -- one for every year chef Peter Jackson has been in the kitchen! The book extolled the virtues of hands-on, v alue driven manage- ment and the ability to stick with what you know . You couldn t find a better way to describe this Albany Village icon, whose owners and kitchen staff have been wonderfully consistent, imbued with a passion to maintain the highest standard and deliver a unique dining experi- ence. Co-owners Charmaine and Willem have con- tinued the great hos- pitality that has made Totara so special to so many. When they assumed the mantle a year ago, they replanted the garden and refreshed the interior, but other- wise have simply carried on the best Totara traditions of fine table service, food and wine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Chef Peter Jackson uses his 25 years of local and international experi- ence to create modern New Zealand dishes with a respect for world flavours. His passion for food is evident in every dish -- whether it s an imaginative entree of fresh local ingredients enhanced by a delicate Asian flavour, or a mains celebration of our finest prime produce. Anewmenuistobe launched in early March -- bound to be as tantalis- ing as ever. The Totara philosophy on wine is that both the wine selection and its quality should match the food. Nothing bland or predictable here -- wines and their vintages are carefully chosen and often hard to find, superb offerings for the price. Keen to support local enterprises, Totara often promotes produce from the region -- for the last three months featuring the wines of OBV from Matakana. Totara Restaurant is open for a la carte lunch and dinner: Lunch Tuesday to Friday from 11.30am; dinner Tuesday to Friday from 6pm, Saturday from 5.30pm. Fully licensed with ample parking, out- door dining options and wheelchair access. Located at 249 SH17, Albany Village. Phone 415-6286. For menus and online booking visit www.totararestaurant .co.nz.
