Probably a quite unusual request, I am not trying to offend anyone but I am a bit peculiar when it comes to bread.

As I will be living in Auckland for the next half year, I was wondering whether anyone can recommend a good German bakery in Auckland that sells authentic German sourdough and wholemeal bread.
If not, does anyone know a good Italian one or can recommend anything similar?

Somewhere near Parnell would be ideal.

Thanks in advance,

Hi butafly,

I can totally understand your request, because let's face it German bread is the best in the world .
Where ever I go and stay for a while I start to miss it after a while, so I always end up searching for a German bakery. It's never 100% the same, but in Auckland we found decent bread at

Diehl's Bakery, 5/65 Hillside Rd Glenfield Auckland, Wairau Valley, North Shore
Unfortunately it's a bit outside the city centre and we always drove there in our campervan, but it's worth the journey.

Alternatively you could try Pandoro Italian bakery, 427 Parnell Rd in Parnell (they actually also have a shop in the city centre as far as I remember). Their bread is not as good, but better than toast and they have super yummy cheesecake!

Enjoy your time in N.Z., even without proper German bread ;).

Hey Steff,

I couldn't agree more :)

Thank you so much for your suggestions, I will definitely try both. If the bread is worth it, I'm happy to go there once a week - might be able to freeze it at the dorm. :)

Thanks again

Also try Parnell markets which run on a Saturday and Sunday morning. I'm not sure if they sell German bread but they sell all kinds of European produce so it might be worth a try.
